    Completed the Christmas light display early this year. Did our traditional "Christmas Vacation" dinner last night and watched the movie with like-minded Christmas light neighbors. And the Clark "Sparky" Griswold award goes to....

    The Boys (mainly Peanut) had me up a little after 7 this AM to take them outside....they understand that word (outside) from a mile away!!! It was just 26 out there, so they didn't stay long and I was right behind them!!!!!!!!!!

    More snow this afternoon...1"to 3" around here... upstate may see over 8"...........Hopefully this will pack down the leaves that have been blowing down my driveway. I have a wall of them I have to clean up, if they ever dry out....snowflakes starting to creep in as I type...just one or two right now................neighbor across the street got his snowblower going this morning...changed the calendars to December today...this year is winding down quickly................the older you get the faster tyme goes by...I never paid any attention to that............ but now I do!

    Lots of rain here over the past couple of days which is a nice start to our rain season. Lots of snow in the local Sierras as well which means it's tyme to dust off my skis. The city I live in has a rain gauge right up the street from me so it's easy to keep track of the rainfall. And the creek overflowing!

    Rain, in moderation, is a good and much needed blessing.Too much, Too soon...not so much.You guys were having a drought not too long ago?

    Drought ended across the state last year when we had record rain. This year started off dry but we caught up quickly. Being born and raised in CA it seems some locals forget that CA is mostly a desert. We're always in a drought. As a kid in October we'd sit in our lawn chairs in our front yard and watch the hills burn at night. Nothing has changed.

    I don't mean to sound flipped about it but my point is the big fires are not new.

    Snow not too bad here over nite...less than an inch...upstate near the Mass border, they got almost 2ft in some spots!.. expect many school delays, as roads will be slippery until the sun comes out to melt and dry things up a bit...This is one of the many benefits of retirement...You don't have to deal with this stuff at 5:00 in the morning...AMEN!!!!!........I'm being VERY polite here..................................

    As predicted, the leaves are starting to take control of my driveway again.All the trees are barren, so the leaves must hide and come when I'm not looking...I swear I can hear them coming down the driveway while I'm sleeping...This is like a horror movie!!!!...:eek:
