Wheather the weather be cold…by Angie

They tell us that California is facing a drought – this is the third year in a row that we have had severe shortages in precipitation, snowpack, reservoirs, etc. It’s hard to believe it on days like today. I’m sitting at my desk with the window open beside me, while Jaquie and I stare outside at the pouring rain. It smells wonderful.  Our skies can’t seem to decide whether it’s really spring or not: it’s been warm and clear and beautiful in the last week, but today’s downpour makes it feel more like a California January than April.  As I drove across the Dumbarton Bridge this morning, there were signs up to warn drivers of high winds – crossing the span, I could really feel them battering my car.  Tomorrow’s forcast promises bright sun, clear skies, and temperatures in the 50°s, though.  It will be a lovely day for a drive to the Temple.
