Last week, we went "snow chasing". Snow is becoming more common here--every year, the winter seems colder. But, I've only ever seen snow close up a few times in my life, and only on the hills in the last 10 years or so.
We had a big snowfall (18 inches) late one day. The next day, we went up to the area in the morning, the snow melting even as we drove up. We stopped at the Diablo Foothills to walk around (that's Mount Diablo State Park in the distance with the snow). Unfortunately, we couldn't walk much because of the mud. This stuff was like concrete! You couldn't shake it off.
