We managed to get a little bunch of calves marked in Greasy yesterday ahead of the much-heralded cold storm that arrived this morning. 40 degrees at noon today, we expect several nights well-below freezing into the mid-teens – cold enough to freeze the remaining oranges still on the trees in the Valley.
So far, there hasn’t been any moisture associated with the cold front, but there’s speculation that it may snow down to the Valley floor. Most Californians don’t know how to drive in the snow. In 1998 when Robbin & I were leaving for Elko, there were about as many cars nosed off the road as there were on it.
