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?

Yes. Hopefully another great winter can fill it up. But hey, at least there is a lake. Compare it joe to the mid 1900s, where it was near empty.

carter, when the lake is full you can take a tin boat (or kayak) all the way to the bridge. i miss taking a boat over, having monday tacos at the moose lodge, and going home on the south shore by boat with no trouble at all from the authorities. just needs ten more feet of mother nature's water...

FYI the lake never goes up in the summer the monsoons just stop/slow it from getting lower

Late July/August will help the lake level go back up. Afternoon monsoons.

Maybe they can zoom the camera way back so we can watch the fireworks online.

It' might be fun to watch Simba when the fireworks go off on the 4th.

Mom and dad were both feeding him yesterday too. I thought that was strange since he's been feeding himself for awhile. Maybe they know he's about to fledge and they are holding on to their little boy?

Now he is up and acting normal. Thank you Critter Ranch. I guess he is not an early bird! Likes to sleep in.
