Southern California Snow


Sure it snows in sunny Southern California !
My brother sent me photos of the snow
they have received during the last storm that came through his area.
He and my s-i-l live in the mountains in the San Bernardino Mountains between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake at an elevation of over 7,000 feet.
This is the view of the neighbor's cabin.
Yep, that hump of snow is the cabin.  It is completely hidden by the snow.



The building at the left is my brother's garage - it looks like it has three to four feet of snow on it - this is after the roof has been cleared off once.

The house on the right is his house.
His has had to shovel the snow off there also. He says the snow is between SIX TO TEN FEET !


Below is the view out his bathroom window.  The bottom of the window is eight feet above ground level.

They've been lucky so far and have been without power only once and that was for only eighteen hours.
They do have a generator.
Talk about cabin fever.
