^ yeah I know what you mean, maybe it's the camera or perspective b/c the mountains definitely don't look that close in person from that area.

since some people seemed to enjoy these types of pics I just wanted to put one more of my favorites up. This was taken a few years ago right after a cold winter storm, SD's mountains aren't as tall as LA and usually don't get as much snow so this was a rare event. Can't really make out the palm trees but you get the idea...

definitely snow. It gets annoying at times, but I love having seasons. It makes you respect and enjoy them more - at least for me.

Obviously everyone is different.

Like Bella said in Twilight, "I hate any cold thing". Palm trees for me, I hate temperatures even in the 60sF.

How about warm dry weather, like Santa Barbara?

Snow. I hate being hot. In Winter it's like somebody finally turned on the air conditioning.
