After last night's brisk chill, a winter weather advisory was issued for the East Bay Hills, Santa Cruz Mountains, and Diablo Range after -- get this -- snow fell in the Bay Area early this morning. Danville, Milpitas, other parts of the East Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains all saw some snow touch the ground.
The National Weather Service reports that snow fell at elevations as low as 1,000 feet and 1,500 feet. The jarring chill is being blamed on "an icy blast from the frigid waters of the Gulf of Alaska and Canada," which dropped temperatures in the Bay Area. Some areas saw temps as low as the 20s.
Did it snow in your neck of the woods last night? If you're a recent transplant to the Bay Area, this is what we do: Freak out about the cold; go batshit over the smallest snowfall. Get used to it.
At right: Rich "Big Vinny" Lieberman sports a Raiders jacket in "2 1/2 inches of snow on Skyline Blvd. in the Oakland Hills about 8: 34 am." Brrrr!
