'Sno More

This weekend turned out to be really stressful due to car problems, snowy roads and traffic which put use on the road for a total of 10.5 hours (instead of 5) and cost a LOT of money.
Goodbye tax return.
After Sunday, E and I were ready to pack up and move to a city where we can exclusively use public transit.

Instead of focusing on the negative, here are some pictures of our weekend in the beautiful snow near Lake Arrowhead:

At one point it was snowing these mini snowballs (they weren't ice, but definitely not flakes!) I called them snow dippin' dots

The first time our little car has ever seen snow! It obviously disapproved, based on it's behavior the entire way home.

despite the beauty of the snow, we were happy to turn the heat off and stop worrying about slipping and sliding down the mountain.

I'm still amazed that palm trees and snow-covered evergreens can exist so close to each other (30 minutes!) Another reason why I love living in California.

Gorgeous photos! Love the contrast of the snow against the bright blue sky. Makes me want to pack up and hit the slopes!

This is unrelated to your post...I apologize. But I couldn't figure out how to email you...

Anyway, I have followed your blog since you were planning your wedding...I love it! :) I saw a cause on another blog this week, and instantly thought of you... "Oh, she could post this on her blog, and her blog friends could post on their blog, etc..."
www.anopenfield.com is where you will get all of the info. It's one of those stories that just need to be spread (I'm not giving details, because it's a long story, and the blog (and the link posted on anopenfield) will give you all the info you need).

Again, sorry for posting on here... I will figure out blogging one of these days! :)

I love living in SoCal too! We were lucky enough to go to Big Bear this past summer by "swapping" our apartment with another couple who had a vacation home there. It was great to just get away to the mountains!
