With snow in San Diego’s mountains, I postponed my trip to the desert and went looking for a snowy road.

Problem? Although I was testing a go-anywhere Subaru Forester, I didn’t have chains, which were required on Wednesday.

Solution? Find another road. And I did, which will be the subject of my next San Diego Union-Tribune “Weekend Driver” column (number 111 since 2000, by the way).

You’ll have to wait a few weeks for that story to run to find out where I went. I can tell you that the Forester was great in a bit of slush on the empty road, and in a nearly empty campground great for snow play.
