We had snow in the San Francisco Bay Area last night for the first time since 1976.

There was a light dusting of snow on the ground (not on the road) for part of my AM bike ride. It didn't make it to the valley floor here in Silicon Valley but it did make it down to some of the suburbs along the eastern edge of the Santa Cruz mountains. My guess is that it made it down to 200 feet above sea level.

It's drier than a five day old biscuit here. We really need some rain.

Yesterday we had rain,sleet,snow,hail,thunder and lighting. Feel free to take any of those We ended up with about 2 inches of icy slush under about 6-7 inches of heavy snow which then froze hard as a rock. Looks like spring won't be until May again for us.

We lucked out, the last storm missed us completely. Just 90 miles south they got 21 inches of snow.

This has got to be the rainiest winter yet on the North Coast. I can't find local data, but I see that Los Angeles is at 140% of normal.

The weather here has been ideal. Sunny, bright, 83 with a little soft breeze, and relatively low humidity for this area. It hasn't rained yet this week, but it hasn't been that long either. Flowers are everywhere. What a great spring we are enjoying this year.

Yesterday a tornado blew apart some houses about 25 miles away, in Greensburg, SW PA. Heavy rains etc.

This morning light snow flurries, forecast in the low teens for tonight and tomorrow night.

Spring is here.

Surely, you jest!

No, spring is really at my location. Temperature of 70F. Sunshine. My fruit trees are in bloom. Some scattered yellow wild flowers are blooming on my gravelled yard. My wife wants to keep the latter and would not pull them up. I admit that they do look pretty.

And my hay fever is rearing its ugly head. Yep, spring has been here. Triple-digit summer is not too far behind.

Time to go up to the boonies home. Or to RV. Actually, I'll do both. Stock market has been up. Life is grand!

Spent 9 days camping out in the low country of NC. 70s-80s there. Got the pine tree pollen covering my car to prove it.
Came back north, 15F outside. Wasn't spring supposed to happen?

Supposedly. I'm still parking my car on several inches of ice/frozen snow from the last storm about 5 days ago. Lows tonight will be around 13. Still looks and feels like winter up here.

50 degrees in my 'burb. I went outside a few minutes ago and I swear I could smell rain. I just can't see it...

Very small amount of wet snow here in the early morning. By 11 AM it was all gone. But the temp here is 40 in Northern VA. And that's no fun.

This winter has been absolutely ridiculous.

Edit: I forgot, it's spring! I think?

According to the weatherman, it's the 6th snowiest ever in this area. "Ever" being since they started keeping records in the 1880's. #'s 2&3 were in 2008&2009 so we've been getting killed in recent years.
