Three Days In....

I live in Southern California....sunny Southern California....and yet this is what I saw this morning when I opened the blinds!

There was one rose blooming right up until the snow covered it. I thought it looked brave but tired as if it just wanted to give up.




The patio table and chair won't be much good for sitting outside today....unless you want to have some hot chocolate and enjoy the snow.

Not only is the song wrong when it says it never rains in Southern California....it also snows!! We have about 5" of the white stuff and it looks beautiful. And because I did my errands yesterday, we don't have to get out in it which makes it even better.

I'll have more photos over on my photo blog....link on the right side of this page.

  1. Wow! Janet...we haven't had any snow at all yet which is unusual here because by now, we at least have a little dusting of snow. Was this a first for your area? Amazing!

  3. Love your snow photos. That's just the kind of snow I like. Looking out at it while I am warm and cozy inside. And then seeing it melt the next day.

  4. Um..well we don't have any snow at my level just RAIN and more RAIN which I am getting a bit sick of it, the water has no place to go too, the ground is overly soaked and many of my cactus are showing signs of water out stress, and to think I get to drive in this stuff today.

    I think if I had choice I would of rather woken up seeing all of that white stuff out of my window instead of more rain.

    Nice Photos though.

  5. Most of our snow has melted in the last three days with the mild weather we've been having. It's so weird to think there is snow in California.
    Hope you enjoyed the view!
    Hugs,

  6. Hi Janet,
    Happy new year to you!
    These photos are amazing. You've really captured the temperature there. lol

    We are finally having some our summer down the bottom of Oz where I live but up the top they have non stop rain and some major towns are now blocked off from the rest of the world.
    Hugs,
    Anna

  9. It looks so pretty! My daughter has snow too. Though it was predicted for our elevation (and the kids saw flakes on their way here), all we've seen so far is more rain...
    Wishing you lots of wonder and beauty this year. Have a safe, happy, healthy and prosperous New Year, Janet!
    Hugs

  12. Well, look at it this way, Janet; it can't get much worse and you have the entire year ahead of you to enjoy the warmth. In the meanwhile, I'm so glad you got these pretty pictures to memorialize the snowy moment.

  15. Ouch. I should have taken photos of my car the other day. I was scraping frost off the windows. Not exactly snow, but just as cold. I'm glad we are back to 70 temps now, for awhile. Snow in Southern Cal. Imagine that! I mean, just IMAGINE that!!

  16. OMG!! I'm from So Cal and your pictures shocked me! Amazing! I now live in WA and have had enough snow for one year, thank you. Well, I'm sure it will not last long. Enjoy until the sun comes back!

  17. LOL It is cold here in sunny Az. too
    We just aren't acclimated to it so it seems extra cold to us doesn't it?

  19. Oh Janet! You were one of the lucky ones that got snow! Whoo hoo! We are too close to the ocean to get it. It feels like snow out there though! It's so chilly and wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing the gorgeous pictures and thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment about my new furbaby. I am so happy.

    Big hugs,
    Holly

  21. Wow Janet! Welcome to my world...

    The good thing about yours is that it will go away really fast and it does look pretty while it's happening.
