Only in Mojave: Snow day

For all you readers to whom snow is "ho-hum", feel free to skip today's post. When you live in a desert long enough, precipitation becomes, well, a little special. And when the white stuff falling from the sky keeps falling, and accumulates more than has been seen in 16 years, it's kinda cool. This part of the world doesn't have many snowplows, so the ability of employees to get to work was somewhat hampered, leaving most of the flightline businesses shut down, and since all the area schools were also closed, it basically amounted to an early Christmas present for a lot of local families who had an extra day to spend together. And, as can be seen above, it left one medevac crew with a bit of extra time on their hands....
