Southern California Meet Snow

This post contains affiliate links.

I was shocked at how much snow was piled up on the sides of the roads and hills along the I-8 between Yuma and San Diego.  There were hundreds of cars parked along the sides of the roads as people were getting out to touch and play in the snow.  Snow here in the Southwest is like a rare beast and when it falls it disrupts traffic as onlookers can’t believe it and must interact with it.

This made for some good pictures and I took some here which you can see below, but also delayed traffic and made a 5.5 hour trip take almost seven hours to get back to home from San Diego.  We actually passed somebody in a truck who had loaded the back of their truck bed with snow, seriously they filled their entire bed with snow and were transporting it.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the snow fall in the hills outside of San Diego heading east on I-8 toward El Centro.
