Snow On Them There Hills?

Got snow?

San Francisco is at sea level, so it is a big deal for us to have snow predicted in the next couple of days…whether or not we get some. 

In fact, San Francisco has only had snow on the ground 11 times in the past 155 years. 


Snow possible in San Francisco now?

The last time we had snow in San Francisco was 35 years ago on February 5, 1976 with one inch of snow.

Much of the terrain in San Francisco is hilly, so to have snow on our 7 Hills in San Francisco will be quite a treat!

San Francisco's typography for views

What makes San Francisco so special for everyone living in San Francisco is that we all have so many beautiful views of the hills and/or of the water…and now with snow?

Probably the best vantage point for snow sightings will be from the top of our highest hill, Twin Peaks at 922 feet above sea level, right smack dab in the center of the city with 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean to the West, the San Francisco Bay to the North and East, and the Peninsula to the South. 

Get your camera out and make history  & share those pictures of your neighborhood…if and when it snows!
