I've had 3/4 of an inch of rain so far, with high winds and poor visibility. Snow is possible above 4000 feet, but my route only brushes that elevation briefly. However, the deal-breaker in terms of making it to Jacumba tonight was realizing that it's Superbowl Sunday, and hence an elevated risk of bad driving. So, I've made reservations at a motel in Pine Valley, midway between Alpine and Jacumba: they're only a few miles away at this point.

So far all my waterproof gear is working well, but I'm going to pick up waterproof or waterproof-breathable full-finger gloves at my next opportunity: it's not so much the cold as the sogginess that's bugging me.
