Am I entitled to a half-day's pay in California when my employer cancels my shift due to weather?

In California, if your shift is canceled without prior notice, you're entitled to a half-day's pay in most cases. This includes things like lack of customers, etc. However, the law states that employers are exempt from this requirement if Acts of God come into play, and I quote a specific example from the CA DIR website, like "earthquakes".

Does that mean I'm not entitled to SOME money when the weather doesn't cooperate?

Weather is included in this opinion letter from the DLSE website as an act of god, and therefore relieves them of liability for reporting time pay.

Actually, I typed too fast, that shows a discussion of what they believe to be acts of God. Prevailing opinion is that weather is included.
