    OK, so every once in a while, snow comes along to the Antelope Valley in the Mojave Desert. But that is usually just a dusting.

    This time was something we have not seen since February of 1989!

    We got a full 8 inches of the stuff in the town of Mojave, 6 inches at Edwards AFB and a foot or more in the Palmdale foothills!

    My chickens had fun walking around in it eating the stuff.

    That is really sweet. What's that "global warming" everyone keeps talking about? [​IMG]
