There still is occasional very light snow in the hills, every few years; the last couple of times that happened, Mt. Diablo was covered with snow. It forms a spectacular sight, when that occurs.

A friend of mine who grew up in Palos Verdes, down south toward Santa Barbara, but in the hills, said they got snow every 5 years, too. These snowfalls near the coast didn't stick to the ground, and weren't enough to pile up (except a bit more inland, as on Mt Diablo on the other side of the Berkeley hills), and were just sparse flurries, but still something special to kids in CA.
That snow in the Berkeley Hills never sticks

Growing up in Sweden I experienced snow every year. I enjoy 4 seasons.

No, snow turns the world into a winter wonderland.

Itís the pinnacle of human unity and imagination.

Agree, especially the awful winters with either ice or slush.

Reading about the commute time from yesterday's snowstorm here in NJ, would lead the rest of the world to think it never snows here.

lol. I covered that in my post. That doesn't make it any less special when it occurs, though, especially for kids.

Many times, it's entertaining for children, can look pretty in a picture, but if I never see snow again, it'd suit me fine.

One thing I learned in retirement is that snow is fine if you never have to go out in it, you can wait until tomorrow. Which makes me wonder why people leave the snow when they retire.

There are people in my town,who have never experienced a snowfall -that is quite odd considering snow covered mountains are only 15 km away, and snowfall happens only a 10 minute drive away, quite often during winter.
