OK, folks, it’s a gonna rain this San Diego weekend. A lot. But for the snow-inclined, that means a road trip to Julian or beyond to frolic in the fresh powder. For everyone else, though, it’s a good time to catch up on streaming or other indoor activities. And we do have some music, museums and theater for you.

Reminder: February is just about over, and so is San Diego Museum Month. Head to your local library to pick up a pass to receive half-off admission to more than 60 local museums, nature centers and more. You have until Tuesday to take advantage.
