Weather changes



I hope everyone in the East is staying warm and dry, in the face of the snowstorm.

Here in Southern California our weather has been changeable. Rain was predicted this past Friday, and as I drove into work, heavy raindrops pelted my windshield. I dashed through cold, wet wind from the parking lot to my building.

But then I suddenly looked up from my desk an hour later and the sun was bright out the window.


This weekend, clouds have been scuddering across the sky, alternately blue and glowering. This morning we took a walk in Tuna Canyon, and as we stepped along the trail toward the hazy blue coastline, threatening stormclouds loomed inland.


The hills were bright green with new grass.


You can tell spring is coming when the small flowers begin to bloom. Here, even in the most infertile places, between the rocks. A sign of hope.


Keep following the path. Where does it go?

Only rain in D.C., and clear already.

Little flowers are poking up everywhere.

I love those clouds that you captured with your camera. I've always been fond of clouds.
After warm (40F daytime high) weather for a few days, our snow is mostly gone, but the nights have been chilly and we woke up to a hard frost this morning. Spring is still a long way off for me!

I was hoping it would stay secret for a while longer but someone must have posted the location of Tuna Park somewhere because, all of a sudden, we are getting more visitors than usual. It must be the maze at the top

I'm hoping that path leads directly to spring!

Whoops, it must have been me.
