Dusting the ridgeline of the Santa Ynez Mountains, a fine layer of snow fell on Thanksgiving Day, accumulated through Friday and held into Saturday, Nov. 30, bringing a rare vista to the generally muted greys and greens of the native chaparral. Across the range to the east, higher elevations in the Topa Topa range above Ojai saw nearly one foot of accumulation. With more rain in the forecast over the first week in December, a good pattern of precipitation appears to be setting up. However, warmer temperatures make snowfall unlikely—all the more reason to remember the special treat of snow within view of the world’s safest beach.
