Snow Over Hollywood


Okay, so it’s not exactly near Hollywood but hey, it was a great sight to see.

In case you hadn’t heard, we here in southern California actually had real weather over the last few days. No really, we did: rain, wind, cold, etc. The temperatures have been way down in the high 30s–that’s like living in a freaking igloo to us–and now that I’m missing a couple layers of flubber the cold and damp mornings are even more cold and damp. (But thanks to Ann for knitting me a scarf to wear while I wait for the trains–thank you, wifey dearest 🙂 )

Anyway when we do finally have a system move through, it takes away all the brown sky from the downtown L.A. skyline and leaves a spectacular view.

Case in point is today’s picture taken from the train station (without color adjustments):

I had to pretty much max out the [digital] zoom in order to get the shot (which is why it is so fuzzy), but there’s the world famous Hollywood sign in front of a beautiful snow-capped mountain range, covered due to all this wet weather we’ve been having. In fact, all the mountains in the area have gotten a good layer of snow and it looks like this year’s visit to Big Bear will definitely be much whiter than last year’s trip!

Say what you want about living in southern California but on days like these, there are very few places I’d rather be.

    • …or be in Las Vegas in 3 hours (car) or 45 minutes (plane), or visit two amusement parks the same day, or spend a weekend in Mexico, or…

      I can see why you miss it. Makes you wonder why the rest of the country hates us, huh? 😛
