It never rains in California - IT SNOWS...!

Really loved the rainbow over the road, side to side, powerlines and all...

Well look as if they really are trying to freeze out Washington DC... I remember hearing about it for years... when they actually got those dams built in Egypt and China they threw the whole world in chaos... the whales do follow the rainbow made of their blow holes for their eyes are to far on the sides to actually see they must have to sides of a brain as long as they both see then they know they are on track... so that is why Southern Cal is getting snow and Washington is fairing cold but not a heck of a lot of snow of late.... and if they were to have a dam break in either place it would throw the world for a spin..... hey chinas is a really big dam now that would break the whole worlds natural spin... and what did we even do to deserve this all..... Lord are we all sure that there is a greatness in life that would cure all ills when man causes so much more hell!!! Great shots there though keep it up for they document whats going one for the weather for the future's insight ....

Beautiful series - so glad you were up and out and prepared to photograph! Especially enjoyed the last rainbow and the mountains (last photo) - such great textures, such an invitation to go deeper...

This is one of your "WOW" series, Harriet!
I like em all. It is a shame we photographers have to put up with power lines though, they sure can screw up an otherwise great photo sometimes.

Power lines and street / parking lot, light standards (poles)...are the bain of my photographic existence.

Just remember to pack a pair of shears and a tall step-ladder in your camera bag

Great photos (as always!).

That first rainbow shot is quite fantastic

Thanks for the compliments!

Keith - if you take along a pair of shears, make sure the power is off. Could be a shocking experience otherwise.

Mole - Part of those mountains are accessible and there's a couple of campgrounds that I'd like to check out some day. There's a couple of places not all that far from where the picture was taken that I'd like to visit but have never taken the time to stop. It always seems like we are trying to get from point a to point b and don't have time to stop and explore. But one of these weekends I'll manage it.

Scott - the nice thing about our snow is that it has the good sense to not wear out its welcome. It snows and then melts within a couple of days. And while California licensed cars covered with snow isn't unusual up here, so many people in SoCal grow up without ever seeing snow close-up. I was in high school before I ever touched snow (went on a school skiing trip). Before that it was just pretty white stuff which occasionally blanketed the top of a mountain overlooking the city I grew up in.
