Kingsburg

One of the unique landmarks in the community is the Kingsburg water tower, which is shaped like an antique Swedish coffee pot. The Swedish immigrant heritage of the community is principally preserved with festivals. Kingsburg Swedish Festival, which is the biggest and most known festivals that bring people in from all over the country, is held annually during the third weekend in May. Activities include a Swedish pancake breakfast, a parade and the coronation of the Swedish Festival Queen.

San Jacinto, Riverside County; I was in FuriousFowl's territory this afternoon, and boy was Hurricane Norbert kicking up a storm in Riverside!! Wind (tumbleweeds blowing across 60 Freeway making cars swerve), hail, rain, and at least 2 inches of flooding on the roadways.

Vallejo, on the way to Napa. Not much quake damage noted in Napa, but downtown Napa got hammered. Yeah, saw the old building with tilted room, Pfeiffer House (rocks fell into street), the Bail Bondsman's crushed car, all the "famous" sites.
