Just in time for New Year’s, a very rare snow in Southern California!
This story originally appeared on our sister site, Eventing Nation.
Temecula, California, home of the Galway Downs International Three-Day Event, saw a rare snowfall this morning that dropped three inches of white stuff on the south side of the city where many of the area’s eventers are based, NBC 7 San Diego reports.
Tamie Smith, Hawley Bennett-Awad and Galway Downs all posted photos on Facebook, which we’ve compiled in a gallery below — the palm trees don’t look too happy about the situation! Nearby Fallbrook and Murietta also saw between 1 and 2.5 inches of snow.
Though roads are expected to be slippery through the afternoon, no major accidents have been reported; the 15 near Clinton Keith Road was shut down earlier this morning but has since been reopened. Stay safe out there, SoCal eventers, especially while out and about celebrating New Year’s Eve!
Go unusual snowstorms, and Go Fleeceworks!
