These photos were taken around 8 a.m., a few hours after it began snowing. Given where we live, we were ill-prepared to walk around in a foot of wet snow, but of course, we did it anyway!

Although you can't tell very well in the left photo, the rose bushes are so caked in snow that the long branches are lying buried on the ground! Fortunately, digging them out of the snow allowed them to pop back up without damage. That's pampas grass to the right of the photo.It has also come out of the trauma unscathed and has grown and flourished as if nothing had ever happened!

 
The photo below left is facing southeast. If you look closely, you can see one of our solar lights along the wall with snow more than doubling its size. In front of the solar light is a small stairway. The spots on the lens indicates that it was still snowing!

Having grown up in Wisconsin and experiencing snow on an annual basis, I am glad that this meteorological phenomenon occurs rarely in Yucaipa, California!
