When I woke up there were a few inches of snow on the ground and on the cars outside my house! Wow! An early white Christmas. Hopefully the rain won't take it all away. I heard there were problems earlier in the week, so hopefully now the Ice Rink can fully freeze at the Library.

LOVE the snow. This is why it's so awesome to live in Danville/San Ramon. Not only is it B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L but we also get rare treasures like the snow!

It is Dec 7th, 2009 and snowing in the San Francisco Bay Area in CA, the birthplace of the global warming religion with Al Gore as their Jesus. Isn't there some sort of global "warming" conference going on soon? The snow must be part of some conspiracy by those scientists who don't believe those "left wing" religious wackos.

It was cold yesterday - No global warming...It was hot yeterday - there is global warming. Literally get a proper perspective. Climate is not weather as a person experiences it in any one location. If you look into it during the last iceage (when the Farlon islands were part of the California coast) the Bay Area had a similar climate as today. We are predicted to get more rainfall here in the Bay more than hotter weather if global warming persists (and is true) do to increased evaporation of the Pacific. Climate is long term, longer than a human life really. To observe local weather daily or even yearly or more is to have the perspective an ant has on a bowling ball, thinking it must be flat from what it sees.

The past few years have shown a cooling trend and if you can see from the hacked e-mails of climate "scientists" you will see the type of environment scientists are in. The IPCC (intergovernmental panel on climate change) is run like the mafia, and leaders in the global warming movement suppress research that contradicts the narrative they have already devised so that they can push this excuse to establish global government, a new cap, trade, and tax market regulated by a central authority, etc. and the media (and most even environmentalists) haven't looked at the actual science and how much is NOT KNOWN today and how research in the future can not be truthful because of the political pressures, suppression of conflicting data by journal heads, etc. Hopefully people will wake up, though it's hard with so much mainstream media propaganda with little science behind it.

Ryan - I'm sure you're the only knowledgable one. You are to normally too busy drilling ice cores in the Arctic to give me this kind of useful insight, as with the "past few years have shown a cooling trend" so the climate must be getting cooler.

I think people are confusing "global warming" with climate change. Dry areas get drier, hot places get hotter, cold places get colder, and rainy places get more water - basically extreme weather, which is inconvenient for 1st world countries and disastrous for 3rd world countries.

I also think people are missing the point. If we are told to believe that the easter bunny is causing negative climate change, I don't care. If it results in more prudent use of our limited resources, a less wasteful and shortsighted culture, and less pollution, then I'm for it.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Sitting in Sydney Australia in heat like we never have so earley in Summer, and I'm reading my home of 5 years , Walnut Creek ['93-'98] is under snow.
How we longed for a White Christmas while we were in the U.S. but it didn't happen. Enjoy while we swelter and head for the beach!!!!
Bye the way, we still stand by the 'lihjt's tradition, our home is the only one in the srteet festooned to the hilt!!!
