We need to go back a year to see how the floods of 1968 were enhanced by events. In December of 1968, we experienced a major freeze and snowfall. It was 25 degrees over a period of about two weeks previous to Christmas. Temps in the Mountains were down into the low teens and Mt Baldy even reported -10 degrees several nights.
There are some hot hangouts scattered across the Inland Empire that offer live music, jazz, rockin' roll and soul and rap. There's something for everyone if live entertainment is what you are looking for. There is the Vault Martini Bar & Grill in Redlands for example. Only 11/2 years old, the Bar boasts talented live bands singing jazz, punk, funk and more on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
