Snow? Could it be?

snow may 8 2015

Many of us have been watching the weather forecast on the mountain the last week or so.  We are being tempted by a chance of snow this weekend at 4000 feet.  It has been so warm the past few days, it’s hard to believe. Snow in May?  Yes, it happens! We woke up to about two inches on my husband’s truck in 2015.  I took that pic to show his Carolina cousins what Southern California could be like in the merry month of May.

These late snows the past couple years can also be blamed for no apple crop.  We drove by our apple trees seeing heavy snow and sleet knocking all our little apples to the ground.  Our trees are loaded this year…

I remember another time we’d had beautiful sunny weather for a couple weeks.  A friend lived back in on a dirt road and decided to take her car to town to have it power washed and detailed after all the winter storms.  She came home that day to a couple inches of snow on the ground – June 2nd.  A surprise snow… true story!

Well, I see Sunday’s promise at this very moment is up to 80% Time will tell!

Enjoy your weekend and hope we have a great apple crop this year!
