You think I’m exaggerating when I say that people go nuts here when it snows.

Today is the first sunny day we’ve had for almost a week, and before it starts raining / snowing again, Angelenos are proving that yes — Los Angeles DOES have snow and mountains.

A quick search on Flickr has a ton of pictures of our beloved San Gabriels, blanketed in a healthy coat of the white stuff. Here’s hoping for a good snowpack this year … and maybe a reason to finally invest in some snowshoes.
