SnOMG: Rare Winter Storm Greets Rainbow on New Year’s Eve
It's an odd, very rare sight: The hills of Rainbow with flower fields and avocado groves covered in snow! An extremely cold weather front descended on Southern California just in time to ring in the New Year, bringing freezing temperatures and unusually low snow levels as well as powerful winds. Instead of waking up and heading out to harvest flowers we found ourselves clearing roads of fallen trees and shoveling snow. So far, it looks like most of our Valentine's blooms have escaped without harm and the snow has melted but for a day or two it was a winter wonderland and picture perfect.
