In what looks like an updated scene from “The Wizard Of Oz“, Two unsuspecting and innocent Hollywood Palm Trees lost their lives yesterday on Sunset Blvd., right near the Wendy’s on La Brea, after yesterday’s Santa Ana winds, clocking in at 80 mph took a toll on their decades old roots.
The entire westbound side of Sunset had to be closed off, as evidence of crazy Tornado style winds made it impossible for vehicles to get through.
My What Long Legs You Have
Yikes... Remind You Of Anything ??
You can’t tell me these two Palm trees laying by the wall like that don’t remind you of The Wicked Witch of the East’s shriveled up old legs that curled away when the Ruby Slippers disappeared before Dorothy’s eyes.
And Ironically, the Palm Trees took a chunk of the wall behind them, exposing their bricks, reminiscent of the Yellow Brick Road.
Do you ever get the feeling of Deja Vu ?? Do you ever get the feeling of Deja Vu ??
And you know, Southland residents are not accustomed to such weather extremes, leading to power outages that probably freaked out all of Hollywood.
Maybe Hollywood IS the Land of Oz… Well, it’s more like the Land of Odd.
