Sorry to get out of order, date-wise. Here’s some photos from Feb. 21-22, 2019, when we experienced our first substantial snow storm since we started living here full-time in 2010. Oldtimers say the last time it snowed like this was in 2008.


Snow falling in our front ‘yard,’ Feb. 21.


The view out the window, westward down Sonora Road, later in the day.


The view to the east, from inside the house.


Next day (Feb. 22), looking south towards the Park: snow has finally started to melt. Almost all of the plants in our backyard vegetable garden were undamaged. Chard endures!
