Last Friday, John took me to Viejas Casino in East County to see Colbie Caillat (the song "Bubbly") for Valentine's Day. It's about a 20 minute ride out there from San Diego to Willows Road in Alpine. Cut to last night - this is the exit ramp to Viejas:
Yep, that's right folks, there's snow on the road. When I got into work this morning, a co-worker said, "So how crazy was that weather last night?"
Not knowing of the coating of white, I replied, "Yeah, it was really windy at the beach last night. We had to take down our patio curtains."
Turns out there was up to 12 inches of snow in some parts of East County, so much so that they closed down Interstate 8 in both directions.
