Snow in San Diego?

Not quite…but kind of!

One thing that’s pretty cool about living here that I never experienced before is that you can leave your house, where it’s 80 degrees, and drive an hour east into the mountains, and there’s snow and it’s in the 30s or 40s.

Back in December, I heard that it snowed in the Laguna Mountain area (in San Diego county), so I grabbed Maeby and we made the drive east. A lot of the snow had already melted but there were still people out there sledding and it was very much worth heading out that way. Here are some highlights from our trip out there.

It was during the week and as I mentioned, a lot of the snow had already melted, so it was an easy drive without traffic or any snow/ice on the roads. That being said, if you do choose to head out towards Laguna Mountain to go sledding or play in the snow on a weekend, I recommend getting up there early to avoid traffic. The best part about all of this though? Once you’re cold and/or done with the snow, it’s right back to warm, sunny weather.

  1. When I saw the title of your post, I was pretttty shocked, haha. That’s awesome that you got to catch some snow–Maeby looks so happy! :]! I’m of the belief that snow is best when you go there when you actually want to be in it. (I miss living in warmer climates, but hopefully soon! <3!)

    1. Yeah, it’s pretty crazy that you can drive only an hour and the weather is completely different, Farrah! Maeby had a blast. Hope you get the chance to live in warm weather sooner rather than later! Where are you thinking?
