Lake Cuyamaca definitely has snow. This screen capture from the livecam was taken at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, 2/23/23.

The livecams at Mt. Laguna Lodge and in downtown Julian were not working this morning around the same time.

But OB’s was:

Taken at 10:30 this morning. No snow … yet. The last time it really snowed in OB, I believe, was in the winter of 1966-67.

Plus it snowed in OB during the Fifties. (Anyone have photos?)

Isn’t there a picture in Tony’s that shows OB lightly covered by snow around 1971?

I think you’re right, but I believe the photo was taken in the 50s or 60s.

I was in my 2nd year at SDSU, 67-68, walking to my art class on the outskirts of campus. The snow started coming down and I was wearing open-toed sandals and a short skirt! Oh, I remember it well.
