First Snow Of 2010

We had our first snow of the 2010 - 2011 season last night.  It was a heavy, wet snow.  Enough to turn everything white but not enough to last long - it will be all gone by the end of the day.

Looking back at prior posts, it looks like this year's first snow was in the middle of 2008's Late November first snow and 2009 mid-October first snow.  The first real snow, snow that sticks around for more than 24 hours, came in mid-December 2008 and late November 2009 so I expect we'll see something shortly after Thanksgiving this year.

I'm still betting on a rather dry winter this season.

  1. I spent my Sunday on a short hike through an oak woodland about 5 minutes from Downtown L.A... in 78 degree weather. Funny how climate works...

    But, yeah, it's supposed to be La Nina this year. I'm guessing it'll be pretty dry for everybody.

  3. Oh my! I love the first snow!! We haven't had ours yet. Our weather has been very indecisive, so I'm a bit jealous of your snowy ground. :)
