Grateful...

Feeling grateful ...

          ..... for the rains that have officially ended the 5-year drought here in Northern California

          ..... for the green grass growing on our hillsides

          ..... for living in this incredibly, achingly beautiful area just a hop, skip and a jump from my house, and open to all to enjoy

Enjoying hiking Mt. Tam in the winter sun(hiking in the winter sunshine on Mt. Tamalpais, Matt Davis trail, January 15, 2017)

Sussie Sutton - I'd love to see a picture of "Lake Sutton!" Clever name!

Yes Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington we make a big fuss over rain--that's what 5 years of drought does to one.

Alexander- Slocum - we'll keep those veggies coming your way, Kat! SF is an easy 3-day weekend trip from your area - perhaps you're ready to visit again, and this time head to Mt. Tam for a fabulous hike.

Good morning Sheila Anderson - I'm glad you enjoyed our green hills. Stay warm today!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - the rainfall amounts have been amazing. I read that San Francisco received more rain in the first 11 days of January that in the entire 2013 rain year! I must say, though, that I have enjoyed 3 days of sunshine before the rains return.

Lottie I've been hoping and praying all the rain would end the drought and not create too much havoc on people.  Next stop - let's hope the entire state ends it's drought status.  Lovely photo - I could wake up to that everyday!

Good morning, Anna Banana Kruchten - southern California stills needs more rain, for sure. You would love hiking on Mt. Tam!

Good morning, Sharon Lee - only localized, minor flooding in SF; some trees down. Hiking was superb on Sunday!

Hi Belinda Spillman - those hills on the slope of Mt. Tam are some of the most gorgeous anywhere I've been, and we hike them year round. It's a great venue for a sunny winter's day hike.

Hello Grant Schneider - we're in for more rain, off and on, for the next 5 days; let's hope Endre Barath, Jr. in southern California gets some of it, too.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - here in the San Francisco Bay Area we're fortunate to have so much protected open space lands to enjoy, as well as the benefits of living in an urban area.

Wishing you a great day,

Lottie

Hi Robert Bob Gilbert - have you checked on your favorite wineries? Flooding in Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties has been widespread. Last I heard the vintners weren't too worried; unless the water stayed high, the vines should be able to handle short-term flooding now since the vines are dormant.

Perhaps next time you and Yolanda are in CA, you'll want to add a visit to Mt. Tamalpais to your agenda.

Cheers,

Lottie

Hi David Martin - glad to here it has warmed up a bit for you -- this winter has hit so much of the country hard. We, on the other hand, are enjoying our first appreciable rain of the year and loving it!
