Dark and Drizzly   Leave a comment

Today was an all-too-typical Central Valley winter day — cool, dark, and drizzly, but with no real rain.  The drizzle is just fog falling out of the saturated air, and isn’t enough to wet the ground.  At least, though, it slows the drying out, so we won’t have dust as long as it lasts.

It was tempting to stay in by the fire, but it really wasn’t that cold, so we headed out and got a short walk in.  For the last couple of days, city trucks have been working on the levee that forms the northern boundary of our property, and I wanted to see what they had done.  They’ve got it cleared of trash and squared up.

There have been ongoing arguments over levee maintenance.  In places, there have been trees planted on top, which is a big no-no.  We didn’t plant any trees, but there was plenty of brush and trash.

The dogs were fascinated by the pile.  They were sure there must be rabbits in there somewhere.

I’ve decided to go ahead and buy a new camera.  These iPhone pictures are passable, but they just don’t have the quality of the shots from a real camera.  Shopping for a good one ought to be fun.
