From the top of the finca

The snowfall got pretty low overnight. I can’t remember the last time I saw snow this low.

This view is from the highest point of the finca, just past the final stop on the Ladera Frutal Incline Railway. The view is to the northeast, towards the Palomar Divide. In the foreground are the massive avocado groves on the other side a narrow canyon, and just west of Interstate 15.

These mountains are about 15 miles away, though on a clear day like today, the sure look closer. Parts of the lower elevations on this snow-dusted ridge burned in the Poomacha Fire during the wildfires of late October.

Update: Next time the ridge was visible, on 15 December, the snow appeared to be gone already. That did not take long.
