And on the heels of that last post, the first snow!
I left the house without gloves (it wasn’t snowing when I left), my car still doesn’t have anti-freeze in it and my winter jacket hasn’t arrived yet.
Thankfully I had the good sense to throw on rubber boots and a hat before I left, and, even though it required some digging, was able to lift my windshield wipers off my car when I came back.
Even though my little Californian heart thought (hoped?) we had at least another month before this stuff started falling from the sky, I became enchanted with this place when I visited last winter and the spell still holds me now.
