Snow in our backyard!

There's snow in our backyard!

Well, sort of...

If you've been following this blog for a bit, you've seen too many shots of the mountains behind our house -- I like to think of them as an extension of our backyard (we paid a premium on this lot because of those mountains!)

So, we didn't see snow in our actual backyard yesterday as I had hoped we might given the predictions about the storm, but this morning we do see snow in our extended backyard!

In the last 14 years, we've only seen snow two other times on that big mountain -- El Cajon Mountain or "El Cap" as it is called because of the resemblance some see to the famous El Capitan in Yosemite -- and then, it didn't cover the mountain as extensively.

The girls are playing in the backyard, happy to be outside after a day inside, I'm sure!

I'm happy to be inside at the moment.

Look at the temperature:

Not unheard of out here 25 miles from the coast, but still worth commenting on!

I hop you're havin' a great Sunday, too, Buddy! Daisy and Co., I'm going to have to remember that saying "get all rugged up." What a great saying! Thanks for stopping by both of you!

Wow! That really does have to be cold for SoCal! I bet the girls are loving it! Cardis are definitely cold weather dogs! Here in Va, we were into the low 60s today!
