Desert Snow

My sister-in-law just called me. She has 14 inches of show this morning and it is still snowing and will until about 7PM tonight. She lives in Yucca Valley which is the high desert in southern California, overlooking Palm Springs. THird time it has snowed there in 20 years. I have seen the snow there and it is awesome on the yucca and joshua cactus. She is now busily throwing bird seed around and making that red stuff for the birds to eat, and putting food on her patio for the other small guys to eat. None of the nature there knows what to do with the snow. I hope she is able to save some of them from freezing.

Me too Leaf STorm, I am so jealous. I am waiting for the snow here in Eugene. It was cold enough last night, 29 wind chill, today the high is 37. I can dream and hope. You are in England, correct, so I guess you will have that wonderful powery stuff soon.

I love snow too, but I hope people who aren't used to it are careful driving!

Yes, but it doesnt actually snow very much here :( Well, at least not in London. The northen part it does snow!

It's been 36 - 37 F ish for the last few days. I too am hoping and praying for snow! It snowed a couple of years ago but it only lasted a few days.

We both can hope that the show floats across the pond from London to Eugene OR. BTW my cousins daughter lives in London, her husband is a banker there. I have been there once and thought it was a wonderful city. WHen I next travel to Norway, I may stay a day or so in London as I usually fly British Airways to London then SAS to Oslo. BA is a wonderful airline and they have better food and movies to occupy your 12 hours of the trip.

She said she would send me some pictures, I will keep on her tail to do so. It is awesome. I do have some in my collection of pictures but they are 20 some years old.
