There -- peeking out between the clouds above the roof of my neighbor-across-the-street -- SNOW!!!! Actual, white, sticking-to-the-ground, white frozen stuff on the foothills above Pasadena!
Now, if you're in Chicago or New Hamphshire or Rochester I'm imagining your reaction is going to be something like, "You call that SNOW????" But for a Southern California native, I can tell you it looks like snow to us ... and it sure isn't anything we're used to seeing in the hills above the Rose Bowl!
