When you see the title of my post you may wonder where I am. How did I have a snowy commute today?
I did not have to drive through snow, but I could see plenty of snow during my commute.
We had a big storm pass through the area and the temperatures dropped enough to bring the snow levels down to around 3,000 feet. I even heard thunder last night as the storm came through.
Yesterday while driving to work I saw some snow in the Livermore hills, but none on Mt. Diablo.
As I headed off to work this morning I could see the snow covered peaks of the Livermore hills in the distance. They were just peeking over the top of the hills that line the western edge of the Central Valley.
I could also see the double peaks of Mt. Diablo covered in snow.
It is also interesting to see the palm trees with snow in the background.
However, by the time I left for home this afternoon the snow had all melted and Mt. Diablo was dark again.
There is another round of storms later in the week, so there is a possibility we will see more snow in the hills.
