Winds gusts up to 50 miles per hour were recorded yesterday as a frigid Arctic storm blasted it’s way down from the Bering Sea, to put a Snow cap on some and a mouth full of dust for others. The above is a wind blown dust storm that caused difficulty in driving on Amboy Rd.

In a obvious Canadian Plot to raise the cost of citrus for the Christmas Holidays farmers have been forced to battle the late fall frost with all the tools in the barn.

With the temperatures well below freezing, Southern California and the Mojave Desert were unseasonably cold. (that’s called an understatement.)

Good News…. its supposed to warm up sometime this week.

    Oh dear, here comes those incessant desert winds again! What’s an Off-Roader to? It’s sooo hard to tear up that illusive “cryptobiotic crust” when it’s always getting blown it to hell and gone before we can even find it.
