Day 26 - power failure candle

We have had more than our share of power outages this winter.
Mostly due to storms...tonight no storm...who knows why?
Came back just now, in time to post this.

Day 22 - rain

This is the creek that runs alongside the road on the way to the physical therapist's office. It's usually a tiny, placid creek but after all these rainy days, it was cranking!

Day 6 - after the gold rush

Here in California fruit hangs heavy on the vines
There's no gold I thought I'd warn you
And the hills turn brown in the summertime
