Now this is becoming surreal but yes, beautiful. Catalina State Park, about one mile from home. Sunday morning after the aforementioned cold front moved through overnight. Snow fell down to about 3000' and where I am the elevation is 2500'.
I drove north, rising from the valley and encountered snow on St. Rt. #77 at the most expensive animal bridge in the history of animal bridges (approximately $12 million), only 5 miles from home.
Go a little farther to the town of Catalina, the clouds were very low. The good thing about fronts out here is the clouds do not linger. A front comes through, drops its precipitation and then has the good sense to.....
….move on! I like that. Then, incredibly, Tuesday night another front came through dropping our overnight low to an amazing 30 degrees with yep, some more snow. I drove around for a few minutes and stopped to get gas where....
…..a guy had just driven from the town of Oracle, about 24 miles up the road and was cleaning snow of the rear window.
Last week, I stood at the top of the mountain in the center. comfortable in a long sleeve t-shirt. Warmer temps are finally around the corner, 60's by Friday and next week, even low 70's. Take that snow!
