Default SNOW in Southern California????

Saw this on the news this morning with folks having snow ball fights in shorts. How did all you guys handle this? Were you prepared and how did your plants take it?

I have been trying to find out WHERE and they haven't repeated the clip. It just said Southern California this morning.

OK I just googled and it said this:

Some Californians spent Thanksgiving Day frying turkeys on the beach and enjoying a little sun and surf. And now, snow?

That's right. Southern California, known more for the ease of predicting the never-changing weather, threw us a little curve ball as the Grapevine section of Interstate 5, just north of LA, saw its balmy weather turn into snow showers.

O.K., Grapevine pass is on interstate 5 that connects southern California with central California. The elevation ranges from 4,000 feet to 5,000 feet.

Of course, that's not the first snow this season in southern California. We have mountain ranges with 9, 10, and 11 thousand-foot peaks.

OK so snow in the mountains. The way the news presented it with the snowall fights and the people in shorts made it look more "newsworthy" I guess. HA! HA!

We have had snow here in So Cal in the beach comunities quite a few times over the years but not this year. I drove through a snow fall on the 405 freeway just north of the South Bay Curve going to work one morning several years ago. That was interesting to say the least.
