Santa Ana winds were bad last night. How was everything at your place? Any damage? No damage here, just a big mess.

My daughter and I planted a pine tree from a sapling 30 years ago. It's about 35-40 feet now. Always worry about it when we get one of these big wind events.

No damage to my place near you. The wind caused the power outage in my patrol area though. Glad everything was okay in your neck of the woods.

Get um! How many different codes are there? You know them all by heart or reference other sources as well.

I figured the power outage you were talking about was from the winds. We had the lights flicker a bit last night and I thought we might lose power but we never did.

Way too many for any mortal to memorize. Lol! I would estimate that I have at least 150-200 CVC and penal code violations memorized and only need to reference those 2" thick books if it's something I haven't written. In my early days in law enforcement, I made flash cards of the most common vehicle and penal code violations and memorized them. Whenever I would write a citation for a violation or arrest for a crime I hadn't memorized, I would make a flash card and add it to the stack. Over the years that has resulted in a me being able to quickly access the information needed by memory. It especially comes in handy when I get challenged and I can rattle off the statute verbatim. It shuts people up.

Here come those Santa Ana winds again...


Until you posted, I didn't realize that was an actual thing beyond the song...

I think it's just lovely though that you and your daughter created such a legacy if you will.
