Hey, Mom. I am preparing to make a Santa run up to LA to visit my son and his wife (who is about to become a mother for the second time) and their wee son.

I have a car full of pressies. I stepped out the front door to load things p and found myself staring into the teeth of an absolute blizzard of sunlight. It was so bright you couldn't see your hand in front of your face, It stacked up on the streets and bounced over the houses, painting everything in an unnaturally brilliant glow. Damn stuff was everywhere!! Almost makes me think it would be better not to drive, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. I've been through worse. I remember one dry season down in Guadalajara, there was so much sunlight it was running into the drainage system for miles and woke up every rat in town.

Anyway, I'll be back tonight.
