While most of the country has received feet of snow, I'm just over here in Southern California dreaming about flurries. Despite the lack of winter in LA and Orange Counties, we do get snow in our local mountains. This year we're had a bunch of rain (well, a lot for our drought-ridden state) and a lot of snow. A few weeks ago I made my way up to Wrightwood Mountain for a snow day. The last time I'd seen real snow was during my high school senior trip in 2001! I've been snowboarding, but with our lack of rain, we usually have fake snow on the slopes. So I was way overdue.
While it wasn't much compared to what most are used to, it was still fun to play in the snow and crisp air!
