The winds began to pick up yesterday afternoon, and by evening they were really flyin'.

Overnight they REALLY picked up steam, and ain't quit yet.

I'm talking 50 to 70 MPH gusts from the Inland Empire to Santa Monica, and Lancaster to Laguna Beach in some areas.

It is expected to last all day, and even tomorrow.

I'm talking window rattling, tree knocking down, anything not tied down picking up, and moving to the next Zip Code, Santa Ana Winds.

In the Inland Empire, where I used to live and work these winds provided a show in such cities as Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and Fontana.

I'm talking Dust Storms, and hours of Tumbleweed Stampeeds on major thoroughfares such as Euclid Ave. where I worked for a time.

Here in Orange County I won't be riding my bike to work, not in THIS wind. ;-D
