Snow? In Southern California?

January 7, 2011

My childhood was spent making snow angels, throwing snowballs and creating the biggest snowman ever. I remember school being cancelled because of the snow, and being stuck in our house because we were snowed in (which is how my Dad kicked the smoking habit…he couldn’t get out to buy a pack of cigarettes!) So imagine my skepticism when my neighbor told me it was snowing outside. I called it sleet.

But about 20 minutes later, she was right. It was snowing. Here, in Valencia where it’s easily a scalding 110 degrees in the summer, it was snowing. I’ve been told the last time it snowed was 22 years ago.

It snowed much more overnight and actually stuck to the ground. But not enough to make a fort.
