This year has been full of windstorms, and since it has been so dry, there have also been some dust storms. This is dust blowing its way towards Santa Cruz Island from the mainland. Dust storms have happened in this part of the world for hundreds of thousands of years (at least), and you can actually find thick, buried layers of dust on the islands.

not much snow

More storming over the Topa Topas. This was in late March.

More Oaks

A storm over the Topa Topas, and the back of Anna's head.
This storm made a ton of wind but no rain in Ventura.
