	We had a visitor last weekend.  She said she likes
thunderstorms.  We drove east from Hesperia towards Lucerne Valley
Sunday afternoon.  Lots of rain, lightening, possible almost-tornado.

	Rain fall in Victorville was 5.5 incles in 1.5 hours.  That's
quite a log for an area with an annual rainfall somewhere between 4
and 6 incnes (depending upon one's source).

	Floods, rocks, and mudslides closed roads in both the desert
and mountains.


	I don't know whether any of this directly affected the PCT,
