In the early 1990s the author of this essay observed a curious phenomenon. He was observing two scuba divers who had descended below a Southern California bay to effect repairs on a submerged mooring system. The previous night a powerful winter storm had passed through, leaving strong residual winds in its wake. The waves the winds created were well formed and from peak to trough, were about two to three feet in height.
