Jack Frost visits Northern California

Here is the view from our house of Mt. Diablo. This was taken this morning - so while there is still some snow on the mount, there was just a little more yesterday after the Californian "snow-storm". Around our house, we didn't get any "sticking" snow, mainly it stuck at the higher levels. However, there were some cities that did see just enough to make mini-snowmen.

This morning, the story was the cold temperatures...getting down into the 20s. So over night, a visit from Jack Frost, left a blanket of hard frost...which covered not only all the grassy areas around our house but on our roses in our backyard...it really looked beautiful, the roses with a little sparkle this morning.

Nevertheless, I did find one "thing" who was really put off by Jack Frost's visit...

Buzzy, our backyard Humming bird - he was furious! For the frigid temps didn't play kindly with his food:

By the time I got home from work, the temps were between 45-50 degrees and Buzzy's food had melted. One of my co-workers suggested that I bring in the feeder every night during this cold snap. We'll see...just what I need to do, add another "to do" to my "plate of responsibilities".

Well, hope your Tuesday brought you much love and warmth! Take care and thank you for visiting.
Remember...Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often! Lisa

From our house I could just barley see the peak at Mt Diablo. I am in love with this weather. Makes me think of Colorado minus all the snow HaHa
Take Care and stay warm

I would swap you anyday, its Summer here in Aus and the temps are climbing, it was a horrid 36 degrees on the weekend and I hate Summer. I'm originally from England and I miss those chilly winters!! BooHoo.
