Would You Believe....

As you know we live in Southern California in the high desert. This is what I woke up to this morning....this is looking out my front door.

And this is what it looks like at 11 AM....

My son went next door to take a photo of this....

It isn't often you see a palm tree standing in the snow!!!!

What kind of weather are you having? It's still snowing here! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


  1. I visited your blog earlier this morning but you didn't have this post up. Wow, that's incredible!

    We have had -19 F every morning for three days in a row. Are our thermometers stuck?

  2. Well, isn't that just beautiful!

  3. This is so lovely. It is fun, but just stay warm.

    Up here in Sac we ar in the mid 40's and low 30's at night. The winds do add a chill factor. We have deen doing kinda sun cold one day, showers cold the next. Very on and off.

  4. I didn't know you ever got that much snow! How weird and exciting is that? I bet it does feel like Christmas today!

    San Diego:
    Very Rainy
    in the low 50's at 1:27
    Anticipating thunderstorms too..


  6. OMG! that is amazing! We're having a hot christmas, around 35 deg c. But this is usual here.

    Loving your zentangles!

  7. Wow! Well, Merry Christmas. :) It's rainy and almost early springlike here in Virginia. Maybe we're spinning backwards. lol Thank you for our beautiful card. Just so you know, I fully intend to steal your idea for two thank you cards. LOL

  8. Wow! That's incredible.

    We've had 20 - 30 degree during the day with ice. I heard that the west side received snow flurries but nothing like what you're showing us.

  9. Well how cool is that Janet--enjoy it while you can.
    I say that because we don't get snow here very much and if we do it goes as fast as if comes.

  10. Wow...we've had rain from this same storm! So cool you got snow!

  11. Snow, WOW! It was 19 degrees in Wichita Falls yesterday but no snow. Got your sweet Christmas card today, thank you for your thoughtfulness! Merry Christmas! Hugs***Renea

  12. It is 71 degrees and wet today in Georgia. Yuck! I want frost on the windowpanes and snow on the ground for Christmas! It looks dreamy where you are.

  13. Aloha Janet,
    Thank you for your lovely card!
    Are you anywhere near 29 Palms in California? No sooner had I seen this post when my daughter called to say.. "Mum, it's snowing!!" and Vegas got 4" ?
    Your pictures are lovely none the less.. PEace n hugs, Kai

  14. I heard this morning that it was snowing in California and Las Vegas. I immediately thought of you.

    What nice and unusual pictures for you to keep.

    We are supposed to have a lot of snow tomorrow and on Sunday. I only hate it because of the traffic. It get so messy.

  15. These photos could be a Christmas card collage! So beautiful!

    The weather nBrazil is really rainy and seems like the sun decided taking vacations with me.. Can't wait to hve a warm day again so I can explore my mom's city with my son.

    Wish you a wonderful seasontime, Janet!

    Kisses from Nydia.

  16. It is in the 70's here ! Nothing like " a little" snow to set the mood. And how true, you do not see palm trees in the snow very often.
    I would like to see a little ground
    cover for Christmas day but I doubt
    that will happen . BE BLESSED

  17. What a riot, Janet. I felt like I was driving in snow this morning too. All frost and no snow later but nevertheless. Jeeze Louise!!

  18. How cool for you! It rarely snows here in GA. It has been up in the 70's so I can't wear my Christmas attire. We will be going to Indiana for Christmas so we may get snow. The roads have been slick up there which I am not looking forward to being on. Enjoy the snow while it lasts. Merry Christmas!

  19. What beautiful photo's Janet! I always think snow looks magical (and also realise that the reality is much colder and wetter than I think).

    We are having a cool Aussie summer at the moment but I am sure it will be very warm before we know it!

    Sending much love to you and your family at Christmas.

  21. Cold and damp here, we are on our way to Yosemite this weekend for a real taster of "winter".

  22. Adore the palm in the snow. Cool!

  23. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas...

    Hope you are doing much better after your spill! Sorry to hear that, you poor thing!
