I was sitting here a few minutes ago, responding to a post, when Donna came into the room and said, George, you gotta see this. We went to the window and it was snowing. Not hard, but enough to cover several windshields and part of our porch roof.

Livermore is in the SF East Bay Area, elevation 480 ft. Right now the temp is 34. It's 6:28 a.m.

Haven't seen it snow since we moved here from upstate NY! Maybe I'll go out and see if I can get enough for a snowball.

Nah, I'll just go back to my coffee.

It was raining too hard for any snow this morning, but my city's just 20 feet above sea level.

I am determined, however, that my son will not grow up without knowing what snow looks like; I'll have to take him up to the mountains when he's a few years older.

Give me your address and I'll mail you all the snow you want! Smile

Cheers from your friendly northern neighbour, eh.

30 cm fell on the weekend (about a foot) and I woke up to -28C. Ah. Winter!

There goes the case for global warming.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

It feels cold enough and we have the precipitation but the snow hasn't come below 1800 feet here in the Central Valley!

It's that global warming stuff! Smile
Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

I'd say a generic Global Warming comment, but someone already beat me to it!

It's already snowed three times in Mississippi in 2009. It snowed this past Friday night, and I don't EVER remember snow in MS during the first week of December!

Yep, global warming... Smile

I predict,the explanation may be something along the lines of:'Warm greenhouse gases have risen to a very frigid level of the Ionosphere...the molecules of the Greenhouse gases...crystalized...then fell back to Earth as 'snowflakes'.'

Tejon Pass - Interstate 5, the Grapevine - is closed. Tomorrow night's supposed to be the coldest this year.

No snow in Yorba Linda (Orange County), but plenty of rain: about one inch today.

Climate Is Weather When It Is Not Climate, Weather Is Climate When It Is Not Weather. Or Not?

Lol Weather is not Climate once warming can't be proven any longer. Same fear, same cause but now witha new flavor of death and destruction and a Shiney new name! It's like Coke Zero

No it hasn't John. I believe the good fight. Wasting less, polluting less. Cleaner, greaner more cost and use effective forms of portable and renewable energy. I really do. I understand that a cold day today doesn't tell me the Earth's climate. That's not what my post was meant to put forth.

What I DON'T buy is scare mongering the world over, forced redistribution of wealth, new globally enforced laws and taxes (taking away my Country rights, and as far as I'm concerncered imposing on it's soverignity) all in the name of a unproven issue. There IS no consensus. Not amidst the scientists nor the population as a whole. Is further study warrented? Of course.

I'm not not all just arms that could snap you in two...I'm not THAT dumb. I would appreciate the slap in a more open manner next time.

Oh I could not agree more. Then to have the passive agressive attempts to belittle simply because we don't agree the sky is falling.

So first you denounce scaremongering, then you go and scaremonger about globally enforced laws and taxes, the taking away of your country's rights, impositions on its sovereignty, etc.?
