Diablo Views: Snow brings out our inner photographers

Original post made by Dolores Ciardelli, editor of Danville Express, on Dec 10, 2009

What!?! I exclaimed when opening my Danville Express on Tuesday morning and scanning to the right to see the temperature. It was 27 flippin' degrees! And this was at 8 a.m.! No wonder our heater had come on during the night, even though we keep it at the lowest setting. At least the day's prediction was a high of 47 degrees - oh, goody - and the forecast was clear skies, which meant that with any luck I could sit in the sunny part of a front room in the late morning.

Dear Dolores,

Thank you.

I applaud your writing and appreciate the return of Diablo Views (Diablo Vista if you are in my neighborhoods). But this writing is delightful quite like a story book.

You again today made my day,

The snow was beautiful and I would love to see other's photo's. Is there a way, folks can post their best Mt Diablo photo for all to enjoy here online. Or is that too risky an invitiation for folks to misbehave?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
