It's freakin' snowing (redux) San Francisco?

This pic was sent to me by my brother back in San Francisco. Yes, that's right, that white stuff is snow. "But wait," you ask, "SAN FRANCISCO has snow?" Indeed, it is truly perplexing. Apparently, it hasn't snowed in San Francisco in quite a while...thirty years to be exact; the snow that fell thirty years ago was also very miniscule.

The pic was taken in front of my house, near the base of our massive palm tree. Kind of a poignant image, no? I mean, there you have a palm tree, embodying the essence of hot tropical weather, and at it's base you got snow, the white flurry goodness synonymous with a much colder climate.

On the other hand, here in Maine, we have been having no snow, and temperatures are steadily climbing into the 40s. And thus signaling the end of winter. Let us all reminisce by visiting the original "It's freakin' snowing!" post from way way way back in November, eh?

Actually, it was really strong hail that didnt melt. Was still in SF the next day if your lawn wasnt exposed to the sun. Pretty cool. The CCSF parking lot looked like it was covered in snow.
