From beach day one week to snow day the next, Malibu is seeing some wild weather shifts.

Who said California doesn’t have real winters? Saturday’s storm brought traffic to a grinding halt as surprised locals pulled over to capture the rare snowfall (which was actually heavy hail). Some even brought sleds along to take advantage of the powder-white dusting along Malibu Canyon Road.

Despite the dangers, cars continued to stop and partake in winter activities after enduring sweltering temperatures just last week. While it’s not something you see every day, this is just a reminder that California is one of those unique places where it’s possible to use your surfboard and snowboard in the same season.

Here’s what locals captured in the rare moment:

Seafood restaurant Neptune’s Net reposted a video that left audiences in disbelief.

Writer and director M.K. Rhodes was out filming when it happened.

She also pulled over to capture multiple rainbows over the canyons.

California Highway Patrol posted a photo showing all the car tracks from those that stopped over.

ABC7’s post shows excited residents attempting to sled across the edge of the road.

This user’s post left everyone wondering where the snowplough came from.

NBC L.A. captured drivers stopping to clear the road from the broken rock.

Various parts of SoCal saw heavy rain and hail, with California Highway Patrol cautioning drivers to drive slowly. Black ice is also expected to make the roads more slippery than usual so stay cautious if you’re heading out.
