CitySpeak: Minor Beach Erosion

Defining this week’s media buzz-word or phrase.

Minor Beach Erosion
n. A subtle reshaping of the coastline, often due to an increase in wave size caused by a storm. Also, a metaphor for the disappointment Angelenos feel after more than one day of rain.

Minor beach erosion is expected to occur this weekend as a series of storms hit Southern California.


I was planning on going to a birthday party tonight, but I’m having minor beach erosion. I’ll probably just stay home.
