This and That March 2012

Well winter finally arrived in March this year here in the Foothills of California. Spring is in the air as snow finally started falling.

Late season snow had temperatures hovering at 32 degrees. Drops on pine needles flashed between ice and water, this one was caught in the transition


Early morning snow fall
