What's the weather like where you are?

You could say that.  Snow in Northern California is one thing but blizzards in Los Angeles - in the middle of a drought no less - are definitely not normal.  Down here in SoCal we like to keep our snow in the mountains where we can admire it from afar and say things like, “let’s go snowboarding this weekend!”  🌨️🏔️🏂 🙆‍♂️  When it comes down into town and starts affecting the commute something is definitely wrong.  🌨️🏙️🙅‍♂️

All that said, I haven’t seen any actual snow in my immediate vicinity, at least not yet.  The freeways are flooded near downtown L.A. and the freeways are also closed at some of the nearby mountain passes with up to several feet of snow and ice but here at the house we just got a bit of hail - one of my eastern-born neighbors called it "graupel" - yesterday and a LOT of wind and rain overnight.  38F and still raining on my patio this morning, and it is supposed to get even colder this afternoon and into tonight.  Likely even thunderstorms and more hail as the next front moves through.  We’ll see.  NOAA still has a blizzard warning and a flood watch active for my neighborhood until this evening.

Now that really is wild weather.

Stay safe.

Well that was fun.  Besides everything else going on around town we got about three inches of snow at the house this afternoon.  It was coming down pretty hard for a couple hours but seems to have stopped now going into the evening hours.  Surprisingly enough (for SoCal) it is taking its time to melt.  Not really cold enough for it to stay frozen but also too cold for it to melt very quickly.  Might even be patches of it still lurking around here and there tomorrow morning.  For now it is just a kind of slushy, slippery mess that's hazardous to walk (or drive) on.

Our temps are still see-sawing back and forth between warm and cold. It gets up into the mid-to-high 60s/low 70s for one beautiful day, and then the wind gets very gusty for another day, brings in cloud cover, then it rains for the next few days and the temps drop back down to the high 30s/low 40s. 😵

I think this is what Robin Williams referred to as "weather by Sybil." The meteorologists are all like, "I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON!!! -spins the wheel- LET'S JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENS!" 😅

you're not exporting your cold weather are you?

Nope, we’ve still got our 35F degrees here.  Dropped below that overnight.

Sunny this morning.. maybe it’ll warm up a bit today.

Rain gauge overflowed - and I’m not sure it accounts for snow and hail - but we got at least 10 inches of rain in the last 24 hours.

I just realized.. doesn't my car look kinda pissed in that pic? Sort of, "Oi!  Very funny. WTF is this stuff? Get it off me already!"

It's a California car.  Never even seen snow before yesterday.  🤣

It looks like the weather has gone into reverse! ☹️  It's now nearly as cold as it was in January and February. The high temperature today is forecast to be 4c and tomorrow doesn't look like it will be any better. 🥶

After a bright, sunny and even warm weekend today is dull overcast and raining. ☔ 😡

Now why am I surprised by the change in the weather?  It's a Bank Holiday after all, and it's traditional for the weather to be bad on a Bank Holiday! 🙁
