Just thought I'd share this with you. The time of day, the trees, and the cloud formations, I thought this would make a nice winter picture to share with you all. Ok...so there's no snow. But still looks like a late winter afternoon to me. Who'd have ever thought a scene like this would exist in SoCal?

Merry Christmas.

Talk about Palm Springs, California area. Snow on the top of mountains... no snow on the ground. Sunny. No or little clouds. Those palm trees... Very nice winter scene there!

My ass that looks like winter. That looks as much like winter as a day on the beach. When its overcast, you have to chip an inch of ice and snow off your rig and pray you don't slide off the road on your commute into work in the morning. Thats winter.

Are you talking about Julebryg Now?  Wink
I sent Mark the tracking number. I spent almost 30$ to send it over to you guys. So I don't know if its stuck in the customs or where it is. According to Our post office they can track it to the US.

Don't worry. I'm sure you will get to taste one of them. Mark promised me a picture with you guys drinking it over there. So I have a feeling you will get a drop of that beer as well  Wink

I found a picture the other day of my avenue under an inch of ice. A freak hailstorm we had here a few years back, and I grabbed the camera to record it.

Taken in bloody July of all months!

Made a change from constant rain, I suppose.

You don't get winter in SoCal. I woke up to 2-4 inches of fresh powder, with it still falling at a decent clip (damn lake effect). Not to mention that nearly a foot is still on the ground.

Winter in SoCal means you turn on your heater when you put your top down on the Cobra convertible.

It sure is winter here in SoCal. Temps in the 60s, high clouds and hazy sunshine. This extreme winter weather is too much to handle. Can't wait till the warm days of summer return!

Amen, brother!. When I went out this morning to get my copy of the LA Times (without my slippers), my feet got chilly before I got back in the house.

Of course when I READ my copy of the LA Times, that warmed me right up again. Skyrocketing blood pressure will do that to ya!

You know you are from California when it's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH"

I miss California winters, worst I ever had was a little frost on the lawn in the mornings......now I have to chip ice off my car

Yeah, but at least you have a reasonable expectation that the car (and it's windshield) will be there when you go out...

Hi guys.

> Matt D, Thanks for sharing that photo & for the Christmas Wish.  spin 

On the 6:00 PM news this evening, the first story was about how Toronto has been issued it's first Extreme Cold Weather Alert of the year for tonight, because the temp will reach -15C before the windchill factor which will make it feel like it's in the -20Cs.

In my home, I know "Old Man Winter" is dropping by for a visit in December when I wake up in the morning and see this on my kitchen windows as I'm pouring a coffee.

Or when I look out through my guest room's window and see a light snow sprinkle.

Yikes, I am traveling to Toronto on Wednesday; I better bring some long undies and super-warm socks! I mean, it's cold here in NYC, but not THAT cold!
