While most of the country prepared for winter months ago by taking of their rims and putting on stock with snow tires. Others put the car to hibernate in the garage till spring So Cal has enjoyed nice weather. For the last few days we've finally got some winter weather and now can make some plans to head to the mountains for some snow.
Here are some pics of the San Gabriel Mountains. Enjoy it while you can because the snow will be gone in about 2 weeks.

It's been so dry these past couple years here in SoCal we forgot this is what winter is supposed to look like here.

Beautiful mountains there. I hope to visit in Cal as soon as I can, hopefully this spring. I want to move to a more progressive state than Texas, but the news lately has shown a lot of flooding and bad weather there. How cold is it there now in Cal? TexasCadillac

NOT ON MY WATCH

I'm in the LA area, and it's rained more in the last few days then it did all last year. Historically, that's a very rare occurrence. Then again, maybe the whole planet's weather system is changing and you can't count on anything anymore.

California can be a great place to live - and there are a huge variety of communities to choose from. Generally speaking, the weather is great and as far as entertainment, sports and other diversions are concerned - the sky's the limit.

Today it's mostly cloudy and breezy and in the upper 50s at 9AM PST. Should make the low 60s by midday. CA can be a great place to live, but it's way more expensive than TX, and a lot more crowded, too. Out here we measure distance in time rather than miles, 'cause it can easily take 2 hours to make a 60 mile trip.

If you enjoy freedom of choice and will and the ability to take care of your own business and do what you want as long as you don't hurt anyone or steal anything, California is NOT the place for you.

That said, the further North you go the better it gets...though I'd never make it a destination, myself.

Don't think I can get into a whole lot more without getting too political for this forum, but the laws, regulations, politics and interference in daily life over here are pretty gosh danged ridiculous...
