Borrego Springs, February 1962. During the coldest month of the year, at least for Borrego, that is, the temperatures dropped to 27 degrees. Bryan Whitworth admired the frozen Ocotillo on Christmas Circle. The weight of the ice bent the leafless tree. During the winter of '62 there was 16 inches of snow that covered the Santa Rosa Mountains. The snow fell as low as 1,000 feet.
