    Yeah, this storm was bigger than usual and what makes it more unusual is that there are multiple systems of snow. Normally it will snow and then won’t snow again until a few months. Looks like we currently have snow in the forecast for the next week. People are not used to it, kind of like how folks in SoCal are not used to the rain lol.

    Finally a “normal” winter! This is what we’re used to, a little snow now and then... just enough to enjoy, not too much to feel claustrophobic :inlove:

    I got another 3 inches of snow last night. Decided to take the truck to work this morning just in case.
    Drove 62.5 miles into Palmdale and the truck, sitting in the parking lot at work was 28 degrees, still had about two inches of snow on it. I would have taken a picture but I would have been arrested, then most likely a body cavity search. I know that @rossage would dig that, but I'm not in to that kind of thing...o_O

    We were supposed to get up to an inch of rain today but nothing but a little drizzle. It shows .02" accumulation. They're showing an inch tomorrow as well yet there's really not much on the radar. Maybe the storm will fizzle out completely?

    Looks like it's trending much farther south. San Clemente and Oceanside are about to get hammered.
