The Big Weather Tour - Sunday 2/3/2008
This is what it looks like when it snows in the mountains. They get covered up with clouds. This is in Acton.
We were headed back to an antiques place around Littlerock, CA to see if we could find something we thought we saw a few weeks ago. Then went on toward Wrightwood.
Really nice to see people getting out into the snow. There were a few dozen cars parked along the way and kids and adults climbing up and sliding down. This is probably around 5000 feet up in the Angeles National Forest. We're down at 3000.
It started raining. The temperature was around 34 degrees and the road was increasingly slushy and we were still 6 miles from Wrightwood when we turned around. Just didn't want to get stuck up there if it turned to snow.
Snowplow! So exciting! At least one of my brothers used to drive one of these for the county back in Indiana...maybe both of them.
Look at that! A rainbow over the Antelope Valley. There were also dust storms going on off the dry lakebeds, but I didn't get a great shot of that.
Time to head home to our cozy house and our flock! Brrr!
