     The Santa Ana winds raced through Alpine, up and down the canyons at speeds that exceeded 50 miles an hour.  These winds are dangerous especially in our small mountain town as many homes are built on ridges where the winds whip up, causing severe damages to landscaping and buildings.
     Some houses lost shingles in the storm, while there were reports of down trees.  The vegetation is at danger due to the drought conditions and now the saturation of soil fails to hold the root systems steady as the body of trees are fiercly swaying.
     One home reported a trampoline actually being lifted from the yard that it was in, and deposited across the street.  This occurred on Blackwolf Drive. It was a scarey sight to see such a large item tumbling in the wind to land on a fence in a crumpled state.
     During the inclement weather, stay safe, as winds may push vehicles on the freeway, and rains cause landslides.  We are still expecting El Nino to deposit more water, so be prepared.
