The sticky stuff we got is still stuck as it stayed coald today. But, we have rain coming in by Thrusday.

Joe. I used to work at a Crown Corporation and my ex worked Directly for the Federal gov't. She would call me when they got word to go home during a storm. I would start to get ready to leave and say the rest of them were nuts to stay in such a bad storm and to dock my pay if they felt I should stay. Of course, before I would leave the building, the order to evacuate would be given.

Yesterday I drove up into the mountains to gather greenery for wreaths. I had to go a long ways before i found living trees...
the fire from last year wiped out 60,000 acres of forest around here.

I make wreaths with grape vines from my garden...
some of them survived the fire and put out new growth this year.

then i tuck bay laurel leaves in with sprigs of red Toyon berries.

I found some huge sugar pine cones and some fragrant fir boughs
and as i was returning the snow was starting...a great way to
celebrate winter.

Oh, it's gorgeous this morning - and we're snowed in. No way I'm going to drive a mountain driveway with 8 inches of snow. My stepson is desperate to get to college today because he doesn't want to miss a calculus quiz. We told him he can walk to the freeway and hitchhike.

I remember times when I was stuck in snow and my boss in San Francisco was threatening me with hellfire and damnation if I didn't get to work. I ignored him, and wiser minds above him prevailed. Sure is nice not to have obligations, to be able to stay home and enjoy it instead of fighting it.

Whoo-eee, ride me high - Joe ain't goin' nowhere!
(but I'm sorry for my angry stepson. Now he's cursing the telephone, pacing back and forth, and detracting from the peaceful beauty of the snow. Oh, well.)

Skiff of snow, but the below zero temps are the bad part.
Last night the cold water pipe to the kitchen faucet froze - the first time in over 22 years of owning this house that I've had a frozen pipe, although I had a frozen drain from that sink last winter. Thankfully today it was not bad enough to break, just an easy fix by opening the cupboard and setting a heater nearby. I'm not looking forward to driving over the continental divide to Butte today. Dangerous cold.

That weather's rolling into Arizona, now. There are blizzard warnings for the northern part of the state -- 2 feet of snow predicted for elevations over 6000', and wind gusts to 50mph. There will be snow visible on the mountains above us here for sure, rain in town, temp not to get out of the 50s today in Tucson.

happy to have different weather -- November was a record warm one.

I remember a time when I thought it NEVER snowed in California - but when I first moved here permanently in 1973, we had to take the train because the highways were closed by snow.

Lyrics to "California Snow" (Tom Russell & Dave Alvin, I think) follow:

Peter.



I'm just tryin' to make a livin'
I'm an old man at thirty-nine
With two kids and an ex-wife
Who moved up to Riverside
I'm agent on the border
Drivin' back roads every night
Mountains east of El Cajon
North of the Tecate line.

Where the California summer sun
Will burn right through your soul
But in the winter you can freeze to death
In the California snow.

I catch the ones I'm able to
And watch the others slip away
I know some by their faces
And I even know some by name
I guess they think that we're all
Movie stars and millionaires
I guess that they still believe
That dreams come true up here.

But I guess the weather's warmer down in Mexico
And no one ever tells them 'bout the California snow.

Last winter I found a man and wife
Just about daybreak
Layin' in a frozen ditch
South of the interstate
I wrapped 'em both in blankets
But she'd already died
The next day we sent him back alone
Across the borderline.

I don't know where they came from
Or where they planned to go
But he carried body her all night long
Through the California snow.

Sometimes when I'm alone out here
I get to thinkin' about my life
Maybe I should go to Riverside
And try to fix things with my wife
Or maybe just get in my truck
And drive as far as I can go
Away from all the ghosts that haunt
The California snow.

Where the California summer sun
Can burn right to your soul
And in the winter you can freeze to death
In the California snow.

We got our first snow of the the year tonight, here in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. The weather bureau predicts we'll be snowed in by morning. It's very pretty just now, with maybe an inch on the ground.

I remember a time when I thought it NEVER snowed in California - but when I first moved here permanently in 1973, we had to take the train because the highways were closed by snow. I had been stationed in Monterey in 1971 in the Army, but didn't experience California snow until 1973. I'm chicken when it comes to driving in the snow - there are steep drops off the roads around here in the foothills, even steeper than in the High Sierra. I could roll a hundred feet downhill off our driveway if I slipped off the roadway.

Our snow is almost all gone, just a few piled gravel-seeded corners and curbs. It's brisk out but not bad. Expect down in the teens tonight, but with no wind it is nice.
