Snow in Idyllwild






















Hubby and I took a drive up to Idyllwild last weekend, on Saturday, after our 5 days of rain and snow up in the mountains. At 6,000 feet, Idyllwild sits at the top of Mt. San Jacinto, which towers above Palm Springs. What a difference an hour makes, from the desert floor to the top of the mountain! I now see why the signs that say, "CHAINS REQUIRED" are there. We had our little Toyota RAV 4-wheel drive and it did just fine, but the roads were covered in ice. Lots of people were out & about and our favorite breakfast place, The Bread Basket, was full and there was no place to park, so we left Idyllwild and got hamburgers at Dairy Queen! Here are some pics from our day.

I wouldn't wish that much snow on anyone, but it sure is pretty to look at in pictures, especially that sky!
We're under a winter storm warning here in Southeast Missouri tonight & tomorrow w/ 5-10 inches forecast, so we'll see what happens.
