The Ice Storm

I know that this is not a big deal to a lot of you, but just now, here in normally sunny city of Los Angeles, we had a blizzard of hail, looking a bit like a snowstorm for a little while. Excellent! Apparently it is snowing for real in various parts of the greater region of Los Angeles county, (up to six inches up in the foothills of the mountains). There was accumulation of ice on the ground for a while, and I went outside to took a snap of the rather pretty concentration at the heart of one my cycads:

I was planning to do a bit of work in the garden today, but it will have to wait until this heavy precipitation has abated…..

Sean and Mark are in town apparently. They must be wondering what they did to deserve this on their trips away from the frozen North East or Midwest.
