#ClimateBrag Fail: It Looked Like Winter in L.A. Last Weekend

A roundup of slushy pics for posterity

East Coasters were probably smiling on Sunday as not one but two storms hit the L.A. area and sunny pictures disappeared from the feeds of their West Coast friends.

Flash flood warnings were issued in Ventura County, and, aside from gloomy skies throughout the day, some parts of Los Angeles including Huntington Beach were struck by hail. Though some waited out the downpour from indoors, other Angelenos ventured outside to snap photos of the surprising white stuff. Here are some of the coolest (and cloudiest, and snowiest) we could find:


  This L.A. Times photo of hail-covered Huntington Beach garnered national attention (and shock) about So Cal’s cold snap.


Some OC residents awoke to frosty remnants of Sunday night’s hailstorm.

Ominous dark clouds were looming over Downtown for much of the day on Sunday.


Even men made of hail enjoy a beach day once in a while.

It wasn’t all storm clouds, though. These palms were getting some sun before the downpour commenced.


There was no beach to be found when the tide rolled in at Santa Monica Pier.
