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.
