Ah, a White Christmas ... at least in the background!
No snow here. Our last snowfall was 27 years ago.
Headed for a high today almost 80°, so depressing. :-(

Thanks for sharing the nice photo. Merry Christmas!

SoCal feels like a dry version of Florida (generally warm to hot, and sunny, but it rarely rains). The only difference is the mountains provide elevation and the opportunities to experience a different climate within about 30 to 90 minutes of driving.

What are you talking about? After shoveling 5" of sunshine off the driveway this morning, the wife and I took Max(our 08 Cabrio) off to the bike trail. There we were able to do one of our favorite 40 mile ride in shorts. A great picnic lunch at one of the parks along the trail and back to Max. BTW with today's 40 we were able to break the over 10,000 mile/year mark on the bikes.. Not bad for a 67 year old guy with a bad heart. Then a drive home with the top down and a quick jump in the pool. Nothing depressing about FL at Christmas time in my book.:)

This 63 year old guy is uncomfortable at temperatures above 75. Yeah, it's depressing to have Summer weather on Christmas Day, in my book.

To add insult to injury, my cabrio top broke a couple cabrio seasons ago. (November-February). So I can't even fully enjoy the few cool days out of the year we do get.
I've lived in cooler climates: Notably New Jersey and Colorado.

Yeah, I lived in Las Vegas, next to Mt. Charleston, for a few years. I hated living in the desert. But, I'll never forget the sight of cars with ice/snow on their roofs coming into town fresh from the mountain.

In coastal Oregon (which I love with a passion) you can sometimes go from a pleasant 65° at the coast, and head into the mountains and see snow within an hour. I wish I could live out there.

I know what you mean we see it all the time during the season.
I live in the Red Rock Canyon foothills area. Sometimes we get snow here and nowhere else in the valley.
