I’m sitting at home today (again) due to snow – along with my kids who are on their second snow day from school. What is strange about this is that we live in California, in Los Angeles County (less than an hour from downtown). Now, we have mountains in LA County – but we live in a desert area… with about five inches of snow in our yard and we have the lowest amount in our valley. Much of our valley has about a foot of snow and the hills around us even more. All roads (in and out of the valley) are closed.
This is likely of little interest to any of you reading this – particularly those of you who live in areas that normally get lots of snow. However, I keep thinking that Al Gore must have planned to visit us today because it seems that every time he schedules a global warming event in a city, that city experiences below normal temperatures.
Welcome, Al. We’re looking forward to your visit.
Here’s the freeway that runs through our city (morning, before most snow):
Here’s a photo of our backyard (early afternoon):
