What a crock! After a weeklong blitz of weather forecasts about how snow could fall at sea level in the Bay Area, the big bad Canadian storm produced some rain and wind, but no white stuff except on higher mountaintops and in a few isolated spots on the coast. From Skyline Drive, you could see snowcapped Mount Hamilton peeking out of the clouds.
It is mostly clear and cold now in the Bay Area, but at least more rain is on the way this week. To add insult to injury, our no-go snowstorm moved south and is now pelting the Los Angeles basin. Friends in Southern California tell me they are enjoying snowball fights. Eat your heart out, Bay Area! But see links below for Bay Area snowstorms of the past:
Enough snow to make a snowball covered San Francisco on the following dates: December 1882; February 5, 1887; February 28, 1951; January 21, 1962; February 6, 1976.
