When ever there is actual weather, Californians go into a panic. This week we had a rainstorm of some power, pounding rain, and high winds. Over night we had seven inches of rain. Every palm tree became an organic bomber. The date palm are rather short, seldom growing larger than fifteen to twenty feet. The large and spikey south end has dagger like shoots where the frond is attached to the tree. At a foot and a half feet long, they provide as much real danger as Californian are ever likely to face.
On the other hand, the eighty foot version of palms are a more dangerous. Falling fronds from that high could turn your cat into shish kah bob. I find the fronds exceptional abstract images. If you keep a close eye on the pokey parts..
