Another winter storm is on its way!

There is a severe weather alert out for a winter storm bearing down on us December 30 and 31st.  Nighttime temps down to 28 degrees, so our daughter picked ALL of her lemons off her tree and she got 2 bags full of them!  I took about 10 of them home and I've been sipping hot water with lemon and cinnamon (organic, from Whole Foods).  Sure is good!

I'm going to have to cover up my 2 year old lemon tree out front, however, so I'll make a note to do that.  It MIGHT have lemons next year (I'm hoping...).

Photo is from our last storm, about 10 days ago...the San Jacinto mountains.

After the storm last weekend

Sorry I've been AWOL...lots of stuff with family & work...AND I have two other blogs that I try to maintain daily (or at least once a week!)...

ANYWAY, after the huge storm last weekend, I took a drive through the sand dunes off the Washington Street exit near Indio, CA.  A side road meanders through the sand dunes there, which border the Coachella Valley Preserve, so there are no houses or mini-malls to interfere with them!   :-)  It's always so enjoyable to drive through the desert after a storm.  Everything just sparkles!
