Cool December

December 2, 2011

December  entered with a “bang” here in Southern, California. We have heard that many were without power for hours and that trees toppled over like domino’s, from the intensity of the wind. There has been much damage to homes and cars. I have not heard of anyone being physically harmed and do hope that, that is the case…The city of Pasadena was hit very hard and that is where the Rose Parade is held each year. It was stated last night on the news that it will takes weeks to clean up all of the downed trees..Snow fell on our local mountains..  Winter is on my lists of favorites..sorry..Growing up in the desert did that to me Lol!

Welcome December

long was the summer….long were the days…of heated temperatures…even hot in the shade…how I adore winter…and what it brings…beauty to my soul…in the coolness…my heart sings.. r gould

    It was bizarrely windy in Northern Calif., too….unbelievable, but not as strong as in the south. And today….oddly warm, amazingly clear…a beautiful day…and I’m home to enjoy it. But I love snow and crisp air in the winter too…in the mountains. : )

    I’m right there with you–love the winter with cooler temps and s-n-o-w! I enjoy it! We had a few flakes and some sleet pellets this week but nothing big. The day before–upper 70s. Sorry to hear about all the wind. It can be so dangerous.

    It’s been windy here in Texas too, Roberta. Some trees have even toppled over due to the weather being so dry here. We don’t normally get any snow, but we are glad when it cools off here. I do love your woods scene. Makes me wish i was sitting next to that creek.
    Hope you have a lovely day,
    Brenda

    Boy, I’m news deprived. I didn’t hear anything about this storm in So.Cal.
    We had frost on the windshield here in North Carolina this morning…
    Enjoy your winter!!

    I’m glad you weren’t involved in those winds!

    I spent many years in the desert too, and I know what you mean by having real winter as a favorite!
