I would say that would be quite the shock in the middle of april if it happened in NYC. But very nice pano.

Very cool shot!

You might be happy to know that Southern California didn't get left out - a picture from this morning:



That's a tree in my front yard. There's still snow in the yard, though most has melted.

Didn't know Frazier Park was so high. No wonder there are blizzards on the Grapevine.

The top of the Grapevine is just over 4,100 feet, I think. High enough that there's snow on occasion and Caltrans will close the freeway a lot sooner than they do further north - so many SoCal drivers are clueless when it comes to driving on ice and snow. They don't have any chain control on it - it's either open or closed. We live not much under 6,000 feet (about 5,700 or so), so we get a lot more snow. This time there was a lot more ice than usual (it had been warm so the snow was very wet, then the temps dropped and the heavy snow then froze). It made the roads a mess, which meant that I had an unexpected day off yesterday. Your picture makes it look like great fun - think I would have rather been there than here.

We have been caught several times on the Grapevine heading into the Valley to visit relatives. Coming from northern California, where we take snow for granted, to southern California it's always a surprise to see I5 turn into a winter wonderland. And yes, it is much nicer getting around the little town of Mount Shasta than struggling through the Grapevine.
