First snow at 555

Across the Bay, yesterday was a snowpocalypse, closing all highways heading west from the city, grounding flights, and delaying trains. But here we only had a lot of rain pouring down on us all day.

Until evening when the temperature dropped and the snow began. First a dusting and then quickly accumulating to a nice white blanket.

With climate change creating warmer temperatures overall, I wonder how many more snowfalls we will see here? I made sure to get some photos of the pretty white stuff on various surfaces.

And this morning it is already melting away as the day warms and it rains.

The melt pattern on the roof follows the nails in the metal and the overlapping seams of the panels. I’d say the roof is retaining the indoor heat well – insulation works.
