One of my favorite things about living in California, is the many contradictions. Here in Redlands we are are at the foot of the mountains yet surrounded by palm trees, orange and lemon groves.
This morning Norm and I ran our errands and were able to catch a glimpse of what our friends in Crestline, Running Springs and Big Bear must be experiencing. I love this weather. These are basically preview shots of the beauty that is to come once this rain clears up. But for now, we are still on "STORM WATCH!!!" oooooooooooh! I love the Cali version of storm watch. I survived 7 years in the midwest with lake effect snow. For a Cali girl, that is an accomplishment, I think. I love the snow especially when it is up in the mountains and I can visit it when I want. :)
