That card Mother Nature. She's kept us in stitches all year with her bag of wacky weather tricks--snapping homes in half and sending them sliding down rain-soaked hills, hurling ocean waves into living rooms and depositing slippery sea creatures on the sofa. With all due respect to Mother N., not very subtle.

An early season storm Wednesday brought showers and rain to Southern California and snow to mountain areas. Rainfall varied across the region, with some areas reporting light showers and others a half-inch or more, according to the National Weather Service. By Wednesday evening, Burbank had recorded 0.10 of an inch of rain, but more than a quarter-inch had fallen at the Santa Monica Pier, the Weather Service said. More than a half-inch of rain was reported in Rancho Cucamonga in San Bernardino County and Palomar Mountain in San Diego County, according to the Weather Service.

Arctic air continued to assault Southern California on Sunday, bringing reports of snowfall in low-lying areas from Riverside to Orange County, keeping high temperatures at record or near-record low levels and prompting officials to issue freeze warnings for some agricultural areas. The peak reading of 53 degrees recorded at the Los Angeles Civic Center was only 1 degree warmer than the coldest high for the date, recorded in 1909.

Suddenly, it's going to be a white Christmas for Southern California skiers and snowboarders. What started out as condition-killing rainstorms, which shut many resorts, have turned gloriously snowy in the last 24 hours. "After four days of heavy rain, it turned to snow after midnight, and we got 5 to 8 inches of snow,” Chris Riddle, marketing director for Big Bear Mountain Resorts, said Tuesday. The best part? More white stuff is on the way. Riddle said forecasts of substantially more snow should bring 2 feet to 4 feet of the white stuff to local resorts -- meaning perfect conditions for Christmas and beyond.

Light showers caused only a few traffic snarls Wednesday in Southern California, but the same storm system dropped up to an inch of precipitation in the Sierra Nevada, forcing road closures and boosting the state's critical snowfall levels. Snow conditions in the Sierra, where precipitation levels will be crucial to determine whether there will be an end to the state's four-year drought, forced the closure of several highways, including California 158 in the June Lake area.

It was only 10 inches, a mere dusting compared to some winters--there have been years when the drifts would dwarf a grown man. But the snow that blew into the highlands Monday on this week's storm was enough to liven things up substantially on Mt. Wilson's slopes. By midmorning, the sugar pines were drooping with fluffy dollops of white and the road to the Mt. Wilson Observatory needed to be cleared.

Some took to the mountains, braving the miserable prospect of wrestling with tire chains. Others headed to the beach for a chance to surf waves reaching eight feet in Santa Monica Bay, despite warnings of high bacteria levels from storm-drain runoff. And then there were all those motorists on Saturday, banging into each other on the freeways, creating traffic nightmares throughout the Los Angeles Basin.

Noel Aguirre was hoping to be skiing by 9 a.m. Saturday. But the Long Beach resident overslept. Big mistake. By the time Aguirre and a friend got to Wrightwood's two ski facilities about 10:30 a.m., the roads and slopes were clogged. Mountain High Resort, the pair's first choice, seemed too crowded, so they went to Ski Sunrise instead. "It was my alarm; it didn't go off," said Aguirre pleadingly to his friend's back as they waited in a long ticket line.

Winds streaming south from Alaska and intensified by an eastward sweeping storm were expected to continue buffeting Orange County today. The National Weather Service said winds gusting to 30 m.p.h. raked the county Wednesday. Breezes were clocked at 23 m.p.h. at the Civic Center in Santa Ana, where banners at the Avenue of Flags snapped off and on throughout the day.
