A couple of days ago, I saw a satellite photo of the US covered in snow. Except when I was in the Army, I have never lived in an area that got really cold in the winter. Snow is a drive to the mountains for the weekend sort of thing. Or a drive across Nevada to get to southern Utah sort of thing.
Here it is spring with the fruit trees in full blossom.
In another couple of weeks, if the weather forecast is right, the almond trees in the Central Valley will be so full of flowers that even the ground will be covered. It will look like snow.
