Review of San Jose, California

San Jose DOES NOT average 2 inches of SNOW a year
Star Rating - 1/23/2019
Whoever wrote the San Jose averages 2 inches of snow a year must have been kicked in the head by a donkey. It does not snow in San Jose. There is sometimes snow on the mountains surrounding the city, but in the city itself it is extremely rare. I should know, I've lived here for 40 years and I've only seen it snow once and that was a light dusting at some higher elevations 30 years ago.
San Jose averages 0 inches of snow a year (or maybe 0.001 inches, if you want to nit pick).

So you've lived in San Jose for 40 years, and yet you are unaware that Mount Hamilton is in San Jose; which Mt Hamilton & Lick Observatory which sits atop it get snow almost every year.

Mount Hamilton is in San Jose. Nearly every year Mt Hamilton & Lick Observatory receive a few inches of snow. Which I suspect is where the 2 inches of snow per year is derived from.
