Ironically, I was going to write a post about a rare Southern California snowfall that I experienced when I was in high school.
I'll save it for another time.
I woke up around dawn this morning. Cold, miserable, and half-asleep, I stumbled my way to the kitchen and got the cats some food and fresh water.
I was seriously considering crawling back into bed, when I happened to look out the kitchen window. It was snowing!
This was a big surprise, since only a few feeble flurries were expected late last night.
I grabbed my El Cheapo digital camera and raced outside to capture the momentous event.
The back yard at dawn
The front yard just after dawn. The camera flash was on and it really illuminated the snowflakes.
Bosco, doing some serious snowflake watching.
There was no significant accumulation, but it's enough to remind me that December is here.
