This is my Dad's house, car, yard, etc., this morning. He lives just an hour north of us; still very much in Southern California. I lived in this exact house, and in my own house just a couple miles up the road, for a combined total of almost 15 years. In all those years, a few snowflakes drifted down from the sky on only one occasion. They definitely did NOT stick to the ground or accumulate.
There is a rumor (can you call messages from the National Weather Service anything else?) going around, that the snow level here in So Cal will be dipping down to 900 ft above sea level tonight. Considering our expected overnight low of 26 degrees, and the predicted scattered showers, it might actually happen. My kids are hoping, praying, begging and pleading with God, Mother Nature, and any other higher power they can think of, for snow to fall on OUR house. They may even set up a watch schedule during the night, with strict instructions for the scheduled sentry to sound the alarm if any flakes are detected.
