So much for that man-made global warming thing.
By midday on Wednesday, two of our major freeways were closed northbound out of my valley because of heavy snowfall and wisps of snowflakes were blowing in the gusts of wind around where I live. I had to pick up my mother at the Burbank airport and it was snowing really good through the pass over into the San Fernando valley. My children thought that was a delight, though it took them a few minutes to see the snowflakes in the air rather than on the ground.
To give you a picture of what I mean, here are a couple of news photo I snagged off the internet. both of these areas are about 10 miles or so up the freeway from where I live.
My mother had left cold, icy conditions in Arkansas thinking she would be in much warmer weather. She was sorely disappointed. I guess this is as close as I will get to living in Canada, or maybe New England, or even Alaska, where people have to deal with this stuff, like, every day for 10 months.
