I returned home late tonight from a meeting to find about a quarter inch of snow had infested our yard. What is wrong with this picture? I'm living in southern California about ten miles from the Mexican border, that's what.
But I'm 3,500 feet up in the mountains and once a year or so Ol' Man Winter really lets loose. The snow will be gone ten minutes after the sun hits it tomorrow.
Meanwhile, here's 24 seconds of video I shot six days before Christmas, a bit deeper into the mountains, about seven or eight miles from where I live. I like to refer to it as "optional snow." The type you can drive out to at your discretion.
Zen addendum, next morning: If the snow has melted when you wake up, has it really snowed?
