Winter Memories.

Full admission – I live in Southern California, where only occasionally we get something close to Winter. As a matter of fact, my coldest winters have all been in Tucson. Where sometimes you’d wake up to frost on the cars, and slushy snow falling. My only White Christmas was in Tucson. I was 9, I think – and we had snowball fights and made a teeny snowman in my grandparents’ backyard. But it does get chilly here. Sometimes dipping down into the 30s at night, with highs in the 50s. Today, it was 44 degrees when I went to take…

So I was at one school all morning, and then picked up the…

Today is weird.

Rain is a big deal here in Southern California. With the slightest bit of moisture, all the news channels are on StormWatch [insert year here] and they have nearly every tiny reporter they can find out in the street wearing rain slickers and waiting to tell you how wet it is out there. Last night it rained furiously here. The forecast called for rain in the morning, and while I knew people who had snow, hail and rain… there were nothing but blue skies here. I went out to run errands, and it was literally as though there was some…
