We had snow at 1000 feet on Mt. Diablo today, and we all drove up there this afternoon to check it out. We saw Channel 7 news crews filming kids playing in the snow, and one guy had a little snowman built on top of his truck. Max and Dylan were having a blast. Max quickly figured out that the goal was to throw as many snowballs as possible, while Dylan was just amping out:

It’s so cold right now. It should dip into the 20s tonight, and I’m betting we’ll get a bit of snow down here in the foothills sometime this weekend. It rarely snows here at this elevation, so this may be our chance…
