I was down in the Desert yesterday and last night and a fire broke out around 10pm in Palm Springs near the Tramway road. The winds were insane so I figured this thing was going to do some damage. Somehow they were able to stop it at 40 acres with no homes lost even though the winds were easily 30-40 mph. Sorry I didn't get very good media from the incident but you get the idea. The fire started just west of Palm Canyon Road and Tramway Road. Very Densely populated with homes.






Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

What's up with fire in PS? We drove to Palm Desert yesterday. When we were even with where 111 splits off a BIG (approx 12in by 8-10in) burning ember of something landed on the road a couple of cars in front of us!! We swerved around it thankfully. It was gone before we could call 911 to report it! WTH?

Not a whole lot, yet. There are reports of a couple spun out vehicles through Arctic Circle, but looking at the Snow Valley cam, not much has accumulated on the roads. With the temp still above freezing roads should be ok, just wet for now. As temperatures drop below freezing later tonight, expect some ice/snow develop on the roadways so travel safely if you must!

There's is another decent band of snow moving in over the next hour or two.... [Click Here]

Another wave of moisture will move through the area over the next several hours with more rain and snow showers likely. The snow level could dip to around 6,000 feet with a couple inches possible. Travel safely and carry chains just in case!

No, you're right Fawn, hopefully next year if they have more eaglets they'll do the same thing but let them public vote on them. They can vote on them with a $1 donation each or something..... Would be a great fundraiser for Friends of the Big Bear Valley!
