Oh what a beautiful morning!

     It was a delightful walk to the bus stop this morning. Birds were stirring everywhere. House finches were twittering, chickadees flitting about, red-winged blackbirds caroling from perches in trees. Overhead, mallards and Canada geese traversed the sky. And to the east, the rising sun sent a pillar of orange fire piercing into the sky above it--perhaps the only physical sign of the storm descending later today.

     It was gorgeous, all the more vivid because of my knowing that there might be as much as 6 inches of snow down by the middle of Wednesday...

What a beautiful morning, it makes you thankful to be alive.
We had some gorgeous sunsets. I hope to catch the sunrise sometime.

You expecting that much snow again. I hope the temps stay moderate. SD

Glad to hear you've had some lovely sunsets. I won't be forgetting that one on the drive back from Monterey anytime soon!

Well, it hasn't started yet, and they've lowered the numbers. Hopefully some will come as rain.
