We don't get much more than lotsa rain during winter here in Santa Monica. This faux snow silvery pine cone is in honor of those freezing their buns off on the East Coast. I'm going to NYC on business next week and am actually looking forward to the snow. The perfect scenario is clear skies with leftover snow that I can admire from a distance. We shall see! Hopefully it won't be crazy bone chilling snowpocalpyse insanity. Being a Southern California girl, I do fully admit I am a wimp when it comes to weather.
