Snow. In San Francisco. This weekend. Or, at least that's what our weather forecasters are saying. Which all sounds very exciting - except for the fact that I'll be in Los Angeles this weekend - and will miss it. Darnit. lol.
As one would suspect, we don't get snow here very often - so I thought I'd share a few images of 'snow through the ages' from the usually temperate San Francisco.
For you locals here this weekend - bundle up!
