This is a view of Mt Cuyamaca, taken 20 minutes ago from a web cam on a private ranch a few miles up the road from where I live, 40 miles east of San Diego. The web cam is at 3,400 feet and Mt Cuyamaca, at 6,512 feet, is the dominant landmark in our neighborhood.
Yesterday, in the hills, we experienced a blast of cold weather. The temperature outside my door at the moment is a frigid (by southern CA standards) 49 degrees. No snow on the ground here, of course. I'm content to simply stand outside and admire it at a distance.
