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.

Yes, 129 Cancellations. Airlines will be parking their east coast bound aircraft at LAX until weather improves.

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

Boo-hoo for us, right?
