Californians seem to love snow more than anyone else on Earth.
As the white stuff began to fall on the High Desert Sunday night, the most common reaction of locals was elation.
My Facebook feed has been buzzing with updates like these:
• “Old Man Winter finally made an appearance. So we headed off to the Narrows to enjoy the day.”
• “Snow ball fight, anyone?”
• “It’s still snowing! The desert is so white and beautiful. Like a Thomas Kinkade painting.”
