Snow! That's the big news in San Diego County!
In Julian, 50 miles or so northeast of my house, they got SIX inches! Julian's about 4,200 feet above sea level.
You may remember a My Town Monday post I did in August about the Pine Hills Egg Ranch? Well, they're located in Ramona, about 30 miles northeast of my house. Ramona is 1,500 feet above sea level and got an inch of snow. The Pine Hills Egg Ranch did a roaring trade yesterday with all the San Diegans who went up to play in the snow.
We'll be back up to the low 70s, even at the beaches, by Friday.
And some fun snow trivia:
-Chionophobia is the fear of snow.
-A snowflake has SIX identical arms.
-The average number of snow-producing storms annually in the USA is 105.
-On Feb 2, 2004, students, parents and teachers from 60 schools in London, Ontario, Canada all lay down in the snow at the same time to make 15,851 snow angels!
Going completely off topic, Mr. Summy and I went to an EXCELLENT play this past weekend: The Crucible. It's put on by Pickwick Players and runs through next weekend. The play was intense; the calibre of acting was incredible; there isn't a bad seat in the house. So, if you're into community theatre, click here for the details.
