The storms of 2008 in Paradise, CA

A convenient parking space

From just after Christmas of 2007 to the first weekend of February, 2008, the snow and storms of this winter were the subject of legend in the Sierra foothill town of Paradise, CA.

I was lucky enough to have my first digital camera during this period, and picked up every major storm that passed through in this period.

The storms took out one of my cameras, forcing the purchase of a waterproof camera I carry with my presently as a backup. Having grown up in Hayward, CA, where I saw two minor snow flurries coming down to sea level, I had never seen as much snow in my life as what hit last Winter.
