Antelope Valley Weathers Storm

Tim Fesko of the Meadowcliff Resort & RV Park reports that despite three inches of rain falling in the Antelope Valley (Walker, Coleville, Topaz) on Tuesday, the day that followed was beautiful with most leaves surviving the blow.  Tim promises to get up to Monitor Pass this week to see what happened above 8,000′, though down in his valley cottonwoods and aspen came through it fairly intact.  Only the elms, which had already turned reddish “had their leaves taken by the wind.”  Tim projects that with warmer weather predicted for most of the coming week, colors ” should start turning from the current lime green – yellow to yellows, oranges and more reds.”
