    • The green grass photos are my favorite for the same reason. Here's another. This is Mt. Hamilton with downtown San Jose in the foreground.

    • Do you have anymore photos from this set? Y’all were staging that one shot on the bank for forever I would love to see the output

    • That’s amazing! I haven’t been able to get up to see the snow this year. Haven’t seen snow in the mountains in years, but when I was little it happened once almost every year! Here is a picture of me from back in 2006 in the Santa Cruz mountains

    • Believe it or not, this is Maui yesterday.
      Lowest snowfall ever recorded, approximately 6,000 feet. On the Big Island, atop Mauna Loa saw wind gusts of 191 mph and the lowest temperature ever recorded in Hawaii, 11 degrees Fahrenheit. The Storm that brought this may have produced the lowest barometric pressure on Hawaii. That would be truly amazing for a winter storm to surpass all of the hurricanes that have hit the islands.

      Wow, that's incredible. It's making national news:

      Perhaps the first time ever, snow has fallen in a Hawai‘i State Park

      What is making the Pacific so cold that storms are dumping snow everywhere from Hawaii to California this week?

    • This was the forecast last week when you were up there. I had to screenshot it because never do we see snow in a local forecast. Glad you got up there to capture the snow. The harsh contrast of vibrant green redwoods and snow is spectacular.

    • A friend sent me a dash cam image of the snow on Highway 17 last Tuesday. Mind blown.

    • It keeps happening! Seattle is now getting record snowfall. A clear reminder of what our climate once was.

      This is reminding me of the stories my grandparents tell about snow falling at sea level in San Francisco. In the 70's, the Golden Gate saw snow.

      I was showing my grandma my photos of the snow-covered San Lucia Mountains, and she told me her grandma who also grew up in San Francisco frequently experienced snow in the 1800's. I looked it up. No kidding, snow in SF was about as rare as snow high in the local mountains today.

      Snow accumulation in the late 1800's:

      3.5” on Dec. 31, 1882
      1.5”-2.0” on Feb. 7, 1884
      3.7” on Feb. 5, 1887 (the city’s greatest snowfall, with 7” reported in the western part of the city)
      0.1” on Jan. 16, 1888
      1.0” on March 3, 1896

      3.7" of snow in 1887:

    • Wow, thanks for sharing Hannah! And thanks all for sharing these all of these amazing memories.

      Since this week's events are so rare, I decided I needed to make it back up into the mountains to get some more photos. This time I went to the east bay hills of the Silicon Valley. More coastal oaks and coastal snow!
