Frankenstorm: LAX Flights To East Coast Canceled

Sure, we're safe from harm as the East Coast braces for "Frankenstorm." But that doesn't mean it won't affect Los Angeles, even as we bask in 80-degree temperatures.

LAX, for one, is being turned into a giant parking lot as flights to the Eastern Seaboard were grounded last night.

Here's what LAX tweeted:

It's going to be a while until weather improves. Hurricane Sandy was expected to hit New Jersey tonight. Then it was supposed to mix with a cold front that could actually strengthen the storm.

A late-summer-style hurricane fueled by warm Atlantic waters transforming into a blizzard-creating winter front has inspired the Halloween-worthy title Frankenstorm.

While some surfers appear to be happy about the weather, the film industry is not:

The Hollywood Reporter notes that the storm has taken out theaters in the nation's second-largest movie-viewing market, New York, until further notice.

Boo-hoo for us, right?
