Snow in Berkeley!

It's lovely and all, but part of me wonders if this is leading to a scenario like the one in the movie The Day After Tomorrow where a Russian tanker cruises through a Manhattan entombed in ice.


This is the view east from my front yard, and in the evening there's nothing more beautiful as the colors from the setting sun reflect on the golden hill. But you have to admit, it looks nice with a dusting of snow as well.

Just up the road there was even more. My neighbor took this picture on his way to work this morning.

No, that's not the Sierras—it's Tilden Park!

Knew there was a reason my sister and her husband took off for Mexico - they must have known that snow was on its way. They both moved to CA to avoid the cold winters they grew up with.

It just started snowing here this afternoon, and it looks beautiful! We're suppose to get 2" by morning, and then rain - yuck. I'm tired of rainy days in December.

In the meantime, I'm enjoying the quiet and beauty of the snow falling gently all around us.

Tilden? No way! If my kids weren't in school we'd SO be headed up there!

Wow how weird is that - when was the last time Berkeley had snow? Lovely for the holidays, tho'!
