A Carlsbad View of Snow
Winter has come to Southern California, which means I can see snow on a number of distant mountains. And I like that just fine.
After all I left New England for Carlsbad to get away from the snow, but seeing it on these mountains that are quite some distance away suits me just fine. If I want to enjoy it in person I can get there in a couple of hours. But for those Carlsbadians who like to ski and snowboard, it's a treat to have it relatively close. You can hit the surf in the morning and go skiing in the afternoon!
