And thus goes Fall

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Pin It Picture: Fresh snow on tree branches in Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California I just heard the weatherman on the radio say, “only three more days until Winter.” It’s so odd that last week we had the lowest, longest-lasting snowfall in the San Francisco Bay Area in many many years. Today the weather […]
