I did not grow up with this winter wonderland treasure, (being fom the S.F. Bay Area of Ca.).I have been here for 6 years and it has snowed 4o5 out of the 6. I just pray that in continues for years to come. Heard of the snow falling here in the past from family here, saw my grandparent's old photos of it in the 4-6 foot range. So nice God put me here for the winter beauty.
