We have put an offer on a home in Pollock Pines and have heard that it gets 2 inches to 2 feet of snow but usually melts in a day or two. If you know the area can you tell us more about the average snow fall? Also I want to garden with native plants so info in this area would be helpful too. Thanks!

Good for you, that is an awesome area, I say do it regardless of the snow. The snow will probably never keep you stuck at home, but you're guaranteed to have issues behind the wheel. I would make sure I had an all wheel drive car or truck, then it won't be such an issue. What you have heard about the snow is spot on, a white Christmas isn't guaranteed, but you'll see some snow every year. It's a real town of characters, and in a good way. Go have a Subway sandwich, sit on the benches out front, and bs with that guy who has the old turquoise Ford. You're pretty much way from it all, with great access to Folsom/Sac, and Tahoe/Reno. My only complaint is how bad the traffic gets this time of year on the weekends, so many people going to Apple Hill. That's a bonus too, Apple Hill is great fun, just go during the week, or when it rains.

Pollock is slightly above the snow line so snowfall is variable. If a Pacific storm is cold enough and carries enough moisture, several feet can fall. However, this is relatively rare.
Also, it typically sticks around only for a few days to maybe a week or so at best.
Unlike other parts of the country like the midwest and east coast, California does not receive the bitterly cold air masses that dip down from Canada or the Arctic that mix with Pacific moisture. Really, the amount of snow this region receives depends on exactly what part of the Pacific the storm track is coming from. The higher to the north, generally the lower the snow levels. The one real drawback for ski bums is if we get a series of sub-tropical storms (very common in California) that pushes the snow levels well above 6000 feet.
