    The snow dusted trees in Mount Laguna Saturday

    That screech of joy you just heard was probably the local skier or snowboarder in the family - was it you unknowingly?

    SNOW-riffic! The Fluff Is Flying

    Local mountains could see up to 10 inches of the white stuff (Published Sunday, Feb 8, 2009)

    Finally, the fluff is falling, the snow is piling up, the hills are again turning white on their own without help from resort owners and their "snow-making machines".

    Locally, San Diego has seen only a few inches as of Saturday morning on Mt. Laguna and Palomar Mt.  More is on the way as the heart of this colder storm moves across the county. 

    We could end up with 6-10 inches above 5,000 feet and, as the snow level drops as temperatures turn colder, we could see a few inches accumulate on Interstate-8, I-15 or up in Julian.  For that matter, any of the mountain roads and communities above 4,000 feet could see a nice dusting of snow, and, with another storm due Monday morning, the kids in the high country could be looking at a snow day - stay tuned.

    Up north, at Big Bear, Mt. High and Mt. Baldy, skiers and boarders could be basking in a couple of feet of fresh powder by Tuesday. 

    Just remember, travel will be slow and possibly hazardous at times so take your chains, plenty of patience and lots of extra, dry clothes if you're headed that way over the next few days.
