Hey, check this out. We have snow in Central California! See the blue stuff on the satellite image up above? That's SNOW. In Sacramento and Stockton. I can't remember the last time it snowed here, but it's a big deal. Usually our winter storms come from the south and carry tropical moisture which is always warm, but this storm has collided with a blast of cold from Canada, so it has brought the white stuff down to our valley. What fun.
Teen1 and I first noticed it about 6:40am when we were coming home from the grocery store. I thought the rain was kind of fluffy and sure enough, it was snowflakes. There's one on her coat sleeve.
Here's what our house looked like with a few flakes in the photo. Almost as soon as it appeared, it disappeared, but I'm hoping it comes back and stays a little longer. Snow Amongst The Oaks. Amazing.
