Default Window - Welcome SoCal View

The view from my window this morning. There are many who would think this would be a lousy way to start March, but it's very welcome for us. We were on track for the driest year ever, but no longer. While many in Los Angeles are struggling with mud and all that goes with too much rain in too little time, we are enjoying what we are getting (mix of rain and snow). I'm hoping that it will be enough to lower the fire hazard for a while. We need a lot more to make much difference to our wells though.

Our snow is usually very well behaved: it arrives and is welcomed with great rejoicing. It sticks around long enough to look beautiful and then leaves before it wears out its welcome. It never really dropped below freezing this weekend, and most of is gone. While the Prius was covered with wet snow yesterday, I can drive it to work tomorrow, even without having to shovel the driveway. On the other hand the Wrangler could use a good run, it hasn't been out much this year.

Walter - hope you managed to stay reasonably dry this weekend.

Looks like a painting. Great shot.

Never thought of it being painterly, but looking at it today, it does have a bit of that type of feel to it. Weather in the mountains can change very quickly - the sun came out for about 5 minutes when I took the picture. It then went away for the rest of the weekend. It snowed or rained most of Saturday and a bit on Sunday. This morning when I went to work I discovered that not cleaning the snow off of the windshield was a big mistake - it had been rained on and partly melted, then refrozen. It was a solid block and I wish I had had an ice ax instead of a wimpy plastic window scraper! At least I had had the presence of mind to not leave the windshield wipers on the glass, so they weren't frozen to it. But they also weren't strong enough to shift the ice, either.

Now, your type of snow is the kind I might actually like. "Here today and gone tomorrow."
Great composition.

What a pretty shot! This season I've had to clear off the ice/melted snow quite a few times.

Why is it that the weather can't spread itself out better? We are so parched and desperate for snow, and the east has far too much of it. Too bad all you who have spent days digging out can't just shift half of all that snow out here. We could sure use it.
