Having TF is unfair in this instance. You might as well lock the thread.

"People didn't know what it was,"

What? I understand this is very uncommon in LA but you cant be farking serious.

Cold statewide. 8°C in San Francisco. But our cold rain happened a few days ago.

is this about cocaine?
 
2019-02-22 12:16:10 AM  
Nah. It'll be a cold day in hell before... oh wait
 
2019-02-22 12:19:03 AM  
Yeah, just north of San Diego here. We got hail twice today. I grew up in Texas, so I'm familiar with the stuff, but I sure never thought I'd see it out here.

In Flagstaff, Arizona (2.5 hours north of Phoenix, elevation 6,900 feet), they broke a 103 year old record for most snow in a single day with 31.6 inches as of 5pm local time. They've probably broken the 3 feet mark by now.

2011 was actually when it last snowed in LA and it was a bit more than today.

solid 5 minutes of super-wet snow in malibu.

odd

This cant be, its the hotest year ever every year since Al Gore brought down the carved stones from Capitol Hill, and AOC cannot be wrong.  There is supposed to be 200 ft of sea level rise next month after all the ice everywhere melts!

Oh wait, its winter time until March in North America, I forgot.

I spent the first 26 years of mY life in LA and I only remember seeing snow once, and it stuck for about a half hour.
In Oregon now and we had s very pleasant day today, which is a change from the usual 38 degrees and drizzling.

At one point in history, this planet's atmosphere would have been toxic to any mammal.  The atmosphere is always changing.  The question is, why do we even approach this subject in threads about weather?

In my location it has been the snowiest February in history. But Mother Nature is always off her meds here. Feb 23rd 2017 record high temp of 53, Feb 24th 2017 record snowfall for that day at 9.5 inches.

Calm before the storm I guess. I'm 100 miles south of Portland, and we don't get the snow Portland gets because there's a lot of water around Portland,( the Columbia and Willamette rivers ) and not much here.

Really cold for this hour here in San Diego County.

Had some hail earlier. Enough to accumulate for a short time.

Has the rioting started?

I'm from New York and never left and even I found the "these people don't even know what snow is" part tedious.

On the other hand, I happened to be in Trinidad last summer when a 50-year earthquake hit (6.8 locally I heard) and I'm only surprised that I didn't shiat my pants because my first thought was "bombs!" so maybe us East Coasters should shut our farking mouths for once.

Yes, its cool that you guys are getting a little snow, but please stop calling these flurries "storms". Nobody is shoveling their sidewalks, salting the streets or dealing with infrastructure failures/overloads. Take a few snowy selfies, toss some snowballs with the kids and have some hot cocoa. Don't be sad if the snow is gone before you finish your cocoa. Be glad you got to enjoy it for a minute. And your cocoa cup? The bad boy is half-full, not half-empty.

Someone on my wife's face space posted a Pic of snow coming down as far north as San Luis Obispo today. Not enough to stick but flakes in the air. I just happen to be in the bay area so I missed it.

About 10 years ago, at the end of our last draught, I lived just north of SLO at a bit of elevation and we had snow on the ground for the better part of the day.

I lived in LA the last time it snowed. Shrug.

It's almost like there's a cycle to this stuff.

The cycles have been getting worse since the last ice age. How much we're responsible doesn't seem as important an argument to have as much as what we're going to do about it. Humans could die off tomorrow and it won't change the fact that the planet is going to keep warming.

/my brother's pictures from Vegas are pretty cool.

"Mr. And Mrs. Hamilton were telling me about California. You can swim in the morning, and then in the afternoon, you can drive up into the mountains and ski."

"Must be rather tiring."

Some hail and flurries. Nothing stuck but Ortega Hwy was closed due to accidents. It's been raining for about a month and we already had the mud slides from the Holy Fire. Now the burn scar is under snow.
And the poppies are blooming already. It's nuts.
 
2019-02-22 01:17:08 AM  
It's freaking snowing in Scottsdale, AZ. Right now. Wow.

The global sea level rises 0.125 inches every year. Nobody, including King Canute, can stop it. Local conditions may vary.

So the next time we Angelinos complain about our weather, you all better just just shut up.  We get snow too.

had hail in coastal San Diego earlier today.  Just throwing that out there.

::eyeroll::

Yeah, because change that occurs in hundreds of thousands of years, slow enough for animals to adapt, is the same as the change that will happen in the next 20 years, too fast for even humans to adapt.

There was no snow here, in "South Central," but there was snow up north in Hollywood.

/There was probably mayonnaise too
//Alexa says it's going to get down to 38F here tonight; I'll toss on an extra blanket
