Hot, cold, windy, quiet; who's to say. I tell them that typically we don't know what the weather will be each day. We wear boots and take our sandals with us. We wear light weight clothing and keep warmer clothes in our cars. Some, like me, even keep a blanket in my car just in case I get stuck on the road, which occasionally happens to someone, usually in winter when the snow plows are working hard to clear roads. The TV weathermen sure don't know what our weather will be. Their predictions for rain often mean we'll have a dry day. Their ideas of mountain temperatures are often at least ten degrees off. Most times they give the weather for the coast, then inland, then they skip over the mountains and desert and give temperatures for Imperial. I've never been to Imperial and don't know exactly where it is. I don't think many people are driving down there, but I could be wrong. I do think it would be better for the local weather predictors to realize that the mountains and deserts of San Diego County are daily destinations and people driving this direction get really upset when they have no idea how to dress. It may be amusing for us to see unprepared people walking through the snow in sandals, but it isn't funny to the person whose toes are really cold. This year we have hot days before most of us are ready for them. I know I'd like to feel more spring type weather before we slide straight toward summer. It seems that we used to get four full seasons, but in the past ten or fifteen years we have autumn, followed by winter, then with just a week or two of spring we wake up to summer temperatures. I'm never ready for summer in late April or early May. To me, July should be the beginning of summer followed by August, September and then the cooler nights of October and November. Winter can last from December through March, then I'm ready for spring. Maybe we are experiencing Global Warming and maybe we are going through a normal weather pattern of heat and dryness, which could also be called Global Warming. Whatever it's called and whatever is creating it; I miss summer rains and I miss four full seasons. Those seasons and the possibility of actual weather is the [Full Ser ce ' est in the County"Meat Department[ main reason I moved to Julian from La Mesa. [ ES.DA ChoiceBee[.

Cousin Mark Greene was old enough to drive but not old enough to know better when he and a couple of friends tinkering with the Cold Beef mine. There were, in fact, two mines at the 'site off Banner Grade. One was the Golden Chariot, which produced a fair amount of gold in its day. Alas, the Golden Chariot went down at an angle and hit a spring. To get around the problems posed by the water, another enterprising miner dug straight down and installed a machine to bring up buckets laden with ore, or rock, or maybe just dirt but it was always possible that it would be pay dirt. What he hit was also water, but that's another story. Mark's friends had some sort of arrangement--they said-- with the owner that allowed them to tinker with the mine. The owner, Ed Ferris of the Laguna Junction Cafe, had presumably lost interest, water being less precious than gold at least in those days. At any rate, the boys had free rein, possibly with permission, possibly because no one was around. So Mark & Co. decided they'd get the lift in working order and, being American males with a good command of mechanics (even if it didn't always translate into good grades in Physics) they thought they could fix the one cylinder diesel engine that ran it pretty easily. The task turned out to be more difficult than they had anticipated, lasting over several trips and they were on the verge of giving up when it all came together into a classic case of "you need to be careful what you wish for." The visits to the mine were, as we noted above, sort of...well, informal when it came right down to it. This is one reason that the clamor made by the lift when it began to work was so startling. It resounded back and forth between the canyon walls and out to the road. The creaking, groaning and general mayhem was a bit more than the boys had bargained for and they left forthwith, not to mention quickly. What happened after that? No one knows. Or perhaps some people do but Mark isn't one of them.
