Evacuations due to fires in Southern California

Thousands of people have been evacuated in Southern California after the so-called Santa Ana winds whipped wildfires causing one blaze to jump 8 lanes of a freeway.

At least one person has been killed and about 100 homes destroyed.

The Santa Ana season has begun with hot, dry winds from the desert blowing across the region increasing the risk of fires.

Snow in Regina, SK (Oct.13.08)

This may be Canada – the Great White North – but even mid-October is too early for this.

As much as 25 cm’s of snow fell over southern Saskatchewan on Thanksgiving with about 17 cm’s in Regina.

Saskatoon was no affected by this storm at all.

Montana was impacted by the same system with up to 30 cm’s in the eastern part of that state.
