December 7, 2009 it snowed in Oakland.

Redwood Park Skyline Gate

This is rare. I’ve never seen snow on a bay laurel tree before. I think of snow on needles, but not on leaves.

    Cool! The boyfriend noticed a car in a parking lot on his way to BART that morning that had snow on it and stopped to make and throw a snowball, but we didn’t get any in our neighborhood.

    I had to go about half-way up Shepherd Canyon Road before I saw any snow on the ground. But that’s not very high.
