Has it ever snowed in Los Angeles?
Yes, snow has fallen in Los Angeles. In fact, it’s not that uncommon. In the past 20 years or so, snow has fallen at least three times. Of course, there’s no need for the city to invest in any snow-removal equipment. The snow never remains on the ground for more than a few minutes. You also might be interested in knowing that in 1981, more than three inches of snow fell in the Kalahari Desert, one of the driest, hottest places on Earth. It’s the only time snow has fallen there.
