Far too grainy - but the view from the top of the car park at dusk this evening was pretty spectacular. This is the illuminated ball on top of VKC; these are the clouds borne along by the Pineapple Express - that river of warm air that's come over the Pacific from Hawaii (carrying with it a whole range of connotations of Dole workers, which is probably unintentional). My latest iPhone app? A new weather toy called Dark Sky, which is meant to be fabulously accurate in forecasting the weather at the very spot at which one's standing - and which features a globe, with all the precipitation in shades of red and yellow on it. There's an intense band of fiery, glowing dampness heading in the direction of LA, which will probably wake me up with a loud bang at 3.30 a.m.
