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.

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?

Just made UTH on the 38. (When I left at 4p, chain Control was just closing at Hatchery). On my return, CC was active at AO & Hatchery. Half inch of slush between Angeles Oaks and Onyx Summit, but lots of heavy fog. (I can deal with the slush, but the fog sucks!!). I only saw 1 plow running. I'm hoping CalTrans can get a good jump on clearing the roads in the morning (and maybe lift chain restrictions my lunch time -- I have a friend coming UTH)
