Howdy folks,

I just thought I would share a couple of pictures from yesterday. First off, it rarely snows on the Central Coast of California, so you can imagine my excitement. Anyway, here are a few pics to give you an idea of what our snow looks like. I'm sure this won't impress many of you easterners who actually own snow shovels, but I thought I'd share anyway.

Very very nice. You could almost hear the trees saying 'OMG, what is this white stuff?'. I miss the snow. It was 85 yesterday and I believe it should be around 80 today, but the humidity was around 90 too. UGH!!!

Wow, that's my kind of weather. I tend to like heat over cold. It gets over 100F here in the summer and I love it. I'm not if I like humidity though. Where are you MrEd?

It's snowing in the Bay Area today for maybe the 4th or 5th time this year ... last I heard, Highway 17 over the summit to Santa Cruz is closed.

Nice pictures! I only got a few lame ones of the remnants on Mt. Diablo yesterday.

I am also from the Central Coast and was pretty excited by the snow. I think everyone with a camera was out taking pictures of our snow.

Thank God that you always have the haggus to fall back on. But, you don't have the Jack of Daniels. Too bad.
03/12/2006 12:57:07 PM · #10
It's "Haggis" (spelling correction) although pronounced more like the way you spelled it.....

As for Jack Daniels, we have quite a few single malts of our own to choose from.

We had some reasonably heavy snow here today in Yorkshire and John and I went out for a drive.

We were passing a field and saw this very newly born lamb

and another sign of Spring

The change in weather has been quite dramatic - this pic was taken exactly a week ago in the same area!

Here are my share of snow pictures from Arizona. They are of the Superstition Mountains. With the rain we finally received we also had snow.

Snow is a rather common occurence here. Here are some of the photos I have that were taken this winter. I do hope you like them.

The last time it snowed in the Bay Area was March 1896! The weird and freak weather is attributed to the cold arctic climates that seemed to have blanketed the entrie west coast and stretches as far as Arizona.

It's indeed surprising to see this in the Bay Area ;) Yay!

Spring has been very cold in the interior Pacific NW. At least in my area :) And it doesn't seem to be getting warmer either. I AM SICK OF WINTER!!!!

Yeah I could just imagine Ursula. If we are getting blasted down here, what more in your neck of the woods ;) Yikes!

No way ... it snows about every 6-12 years around here. Somewhere there's photos from the mid-1960's of my elementary school in Menlo Park (elev. about 40 ft) with 2-3 inches of snow on the ground. Mt. Hamilton (near San Jose) gets snow just about every year -- unfortunately, both HamCams are down for repair/replacement.
03/12/2006 02:31:37 PM · #18
Interesting Paul. I do remember snow last year as well but look here
03/12/2006 02:35:17 PM · #19
The key phrase in that article was "in March" -- it has snowed frequently in other months, but not in the month of March since 1896.

I also don't remember so many different snowfalls in one year.

Woo Steve, this is really an amazing pic. This is a deja vu reproduction of the work of Pieter Brueghel, The Elder (1525-1569). Two of his works in particular came to mind as soon as I saw your pic. The "Winter - Hunter in the snow" (1565) is a large print I have. Another of his snow works "The Numbering at Bethlehem" (1566)
has exactly the same feel. Perhaps nobody else sees it like that but for me the connection was instant. I thought you'd like to know.

Wow thanks for the links Brett, really interesting and a definite similar "feel"

I was actually loosly thinking more LS Lowry when I took the shot but your association is better.

Thanks again

Steve

Yeah, single malts are ok for people with 'taste', but for the tasteless bunch, good ol' American charcoal filtered, oak barreled aged, blended whiskey will get you through any winter.

Especially when washing down the haggis (spelling corrected).

Good to see you get out and make the most of it Steve...a really nice set of shots, and I agree with "Kiwipix" that the park shot with the City skyline is reminiscent of an old painting...shades of "Lowry" also.

The best I could manage was a "snapshot" in the back garden and only because my "big overgrown kids" bullied me into getting the camera out while they were reliving their childhood.
