Who Said It Never Snows In Southern California?

Well they would have changed their mind if they were living here on Wednesday morning. This is what I woke up to?

We have never had this much snow since I've lived her (9/79). We might have a few flurries or a few inches of sleety snow, but never the good powdery, snowman making kind like this is. Better yet, it snowed all day long.

Now the bad part is is that today Mr. Sunshine came out and is melting it all away and making a real mess of it all. Living in the desert means higher temps in the daytime with low temps at night. So it melts in the day and freezes in the night. But even with all that, I love it and it SO reminds me of growing up back east when I was a child.

Had to share this picture of my adorable 2 yo grandson, Jayden. This was his first time experiencing snow and he loved it.

I had a brief lapse in posting because I had to have my chihuahua, Molly, treated at the Vet for pork poisoning. She had to stay there 3 days. Her momma, dummy as she is, did not know that pork is toxic for dogs. I have given her numerous pork bones before and she was fine. Lesson learned. Glad I have pet insurance! She's home now and resting up with her 3 different kinds of meds. Gotta love em.Her the darling is. Her eyes are brown but the flash makes em blue. She's back to her old begging self, with a bit of laziness here and there.

Since I'm already late on getting this posted, the sun is really melting our snow. I can hear it dripping from the roof, although our swimming pool and spa are frozen on the top. Too bad it's not completely frozen or we could ice skate on it. Well, I don't know that I could hehe I did take a couple of little falls on the ice/snow and boy am I paying for it today! I swear I didn't know I had this many muscles hehe.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I still have some shopping to do. Wish there was a REAL santa ;-)
