California Winter Wonderland

A series of rainstorms have rolled into the San Francisco Bay Area this week. After a fairly dry and sunny month of February and early March, we are cheering the rain on! The hills and fields are bursting with the growth of new grasses in glorious shades of green – our version of a winter wonderland.

    So pretty – we’re seeing white again today.

    1. Thanks, Dan. When living back East, I always loved the beauty of freshly fallen snow, shoveling and driving in it, not so much. I hope this is your last storm!

        I hope so, too. It is pretty. Thankfully, our company lets us work from home on days like this.

      2. Great company to let you work from home on snow storm days. When I lived in CT, I worked at Mt. Sinai (gone now) and Hartford Hospitals. No snow days for the weary healthcare worker. I even drove to work in blizzard Larry when the highways were shut down. I lost at least 5 pounds from shaking in my boots and needed a crowbar to pry my hands off the steering wheel. Those were the days when I was young and foolish!!!

        One of the good reasons to let people work from home is to let the roads be clear for the people that have to work, like healthcare workers. I give them a giant amount of credit.

    I will be in Sonoma in May, what is the weather typically like? Sooo looking forward to it.

    1. Lucky you! The weather in May is typically mild and sunny, a perfect time to visit Sonoma.

    What road is that?

      1. tonytomeo says:

        Oh, I should have guessed that.

      2. I’m impressed by how well you know the area!

        Back in the early 1990s, I worked briefly at Capitol Wholesale Nursery, when they were still on Keaton Loom, just south of Aborn Road off of San Felipe Road.
