Where's the snow?

I live just one hour from Shaver Lake and Yosemite. When we get freezing mornings and rainy days, it usually means it's snowing up in the mountains. So far we've seen some morning frost but no rain. In picture calendars, January is seen as a snowy white month. Where is that January snow?

I thought I'd make my own snowballs. I had in mind those yummy Hostess® Sno Balls®. Hostess changes the coconut color from their normal pink according to the season. For St. Patrick's Day they are green. They are orange for Halloween. And for January they are white.
Chocolate cupcakes
Marshmallow Creme
Unsweetened coconut

1. Spray cupcake pan with nonstick baking spray and bake cupcakes without the cupcake liner. Let cupcakes cool before decorating.
2. Trim top off so that they will sit flat. Make a whole on the top and fill it with the marshmallow creme. Cover it with some of the cake that was removed.

3. Flip cupcake over and frost the cupcake with the marshmallow creme.

4. Cover with coconut and eat it! :D
