Snow in Saratoga California!
The recent 3-4 day storm weathered by Silicon Valley residents left the bay area experiencing unusual heavy rain, hail and snow. Yes - SNOW.
The photo of Mount Hamilton was taken this morning from a Blossom Valley in San Jose. You can see Silver Creek Valley homes on the left side of the mountain ridge.
Snow on Mount Hamilton is common. I am a native to the bay area. I see snow on mountain tops that I have never seen before!
Saratoga California was showered with snow. Many local residents were able to drive 15-20 minutes to Saratoga and play in the snow.
While I rarely watch the news ... last night I caught 10-15 minutes of the news showing kids and families playing in the snow in Saratoga Ca.
It's rare to see good things happening in the news. which is why I rarely watch it. The good news, the fun, the frolicking did not last long however. The park ranger kicked the families out of the area. When they returned to their vehicle they found a citation for parking their vehicle after sunset. One resident laughed it off ... saying "we got a citation for playing in the snow." Many families said they will return today to play in the Saratoga snow. Many reported their children had never seen snow!
Other areas hit by unusual storms were not so lucky. Juli Vosmik reported storm damage in Scottsdale Arizona.
