O IT LOOKS AS IF i HAD PICKED A BAD WINTER Again, the northeast or desert winds which began on the morning of March 3rd, and reached a velocity of 36 miles an hour at ~San Pedro, have retarded the bad weather which I had scheduled to arrive on the 8th, postponing it un- til about Marcia 13th, or possibly be- fore. This is the twelfth northeast or des- ert winds which have blown this win- ter, Avalon, having received eight, but only one amounting to much. This marks the greatest number of north- east winds since the winter of 1895 and 1896, when there were six bad Santa Anas, as they were called at that time. And, incidentally, it was a very cold winter. During the first week of January, 1896, snow fell as far as the coast, for I snowballed, in the little town of Chino, for three hours, and snow remained on the ground throughout Southern California during most of the day.
