Solid Water Falls From Skies Over Mt. Helix!

LA MESA -- Well, if you've been heard to use the expression "It'll be a snowy day on Mt. Helix before I . . ." you may need to choose another location.

Overnight rains mixed in some bouts of hail and even flakes of snow were seen making it through momentarily to the ground on Mt. Helix. (See flakes clinging to bushes in photo above). The top of Mt. Helix is roughly at 1300 feet.

Still, no one was talking "snow day" for local schools. It is not even clear that local residents understand the concept of a "snow day." Most think that is a day in which you drive up to Julian or Tahoe after a storm, but it is actually a joyful experience among school children of the great, white north when they rise in the morning to find too much snow for the buses to deliver them to school. The lucky students of Julian are experiencing one today.

The even luckier residents of La Mesa can see the whole thing as a novelty -- one to bore grandchildren with decades from now.
