September Rain 2013
This video clip shows a little bit of the storm that hit late Sunday (September 08, 2013). The intensity of this storm was comparable to that of the storm that hit in July that damaged roads throughout Inyo County. Hopefully we don't wind up with even more washed out roads!

That there's what I'd call a gully washer! Grab yer surfboards! It's time to head out to some dry washes to catch a flash flood down to the middle of the valley! Cowabunga, surf's up!!!

The dirt road by my house looks like a stream bed this morning. On a brighter note all the trails should be washed clean for biking.
Make Trona great again!

A friend of mine knows a guy who always goes out after a storm prospecting for gold. He walks up washes looking for black sand. He says it's a sign that a gold deposit is nearby (presumably up the canyon). So far he hasn't struck it rich, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time...

Looks like the weather is pretty moderate for the next week. Not much hope of a white Christmas around here! That's just fine with me though. I prefer uneventful weather for the most part and look forward to moderate temperatures and not much wind for the next several days!

Drivers stranded in California snowstorm
Up to a foot of snow fell in the Lake Arrowhead area and the snow level got down to about 1000 feet. It looks like Cajon Pass stayed open, but some of the mountain roads were impassable unless drivers were properly equipped.

So far I've avoided starting my cooler, but it looks like I won't be able to hold out much longer. Been opening the windows at night to let in the cool air and closing up everything tight during the day. It's worked so far, but it won't be long!

The heat is on! I put off getting the cooler up and running for as long as possible, but even at that I only lasted two weeks after my last post. At this point I've used it almost everyday during the last week and it looks like I'll be using it daily from now until September! So far it looks like it could be a humid summer. Not thrilled at all about that prospect!
