RSPB Giving Nature a Home
Evening all: A lovely drive today. Traffic was good for the most part, skies were sunny, the hills behind LA were oh-so-green and the mountain peaks covered with snow. I stopped at the Coachella Preserve just north-east of Palm Springs and will try to post photos soon. Wendyb: Your trip sounds like the last one I took this way - 5 accidents on a 50-mile stretch of freeway, all nicely spaced out so that you never got over 25mph. Actually, yours sounds worse.... :-(
Following is a photo from the Rest Stop near Palm Springs; that's Mt. San Jacinto with the icing on top.
Huh. Well that one loaded, but the next one didn't so I need to figure out what's going on - and they're only 72dpi.
Agree, awful news from Christchurch. I've read and enjoyed all your news - Nothing exciting happening here, in fact more medical stuff!! This time from the Canadian branch of the family. So I'm not going to go into details, I've posted so much lately regarding this kind of stuff, it must be depressing you all..... Like everyone else, Brexit is confusing and annoying me, and that is all I'll say about that! Regards to all
Morning all: Well, there goes my illusion that our friends Down Under have been spared the kind of nightmare in which we seem to specialize here in the U.S. Heather: Well I tend to get medical news from one quarter or another a bit mixed up so don't worry about depressing me. Donald Trump and his gang of cronies are taking care of things on that front. :-) I'm not sure I'd trade Trump for Brexit though at this point. As my sister says: At least you'll eventually get rid of him. OG: I'm in a different part of this motel and the internet is slower than usual. Will try to find some helpful hints about uploading pix when I get a chance. Must shower and head out. There's a really lovely hardware/home-stuff store in downtown Prescott and I'm trying to figure out how I can find an hour to pop in and browse en route to the house....
Hi, all. I'm not feeling well, so forgive me if I don't do any replies. I just popped in to say that I hope bjane is okay. A winter storm from the west underwent a record-setting bombogenesis and became a "bomb cyclone" on land with100 mph winds. It's been causing blizzards, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, etc. in the eastern part of the country. Iowa is in a "state of emergency" and is experiencing historic flooding, and the waters are even threatening a nuclear power plant that must be shut down. I think the devastation has hit the western part of Iowa hardest, but I'm not sure, so I'm hoping that bjane is okay. I just wanted her to know that I was thinking about her. Take care and be safe, bjane!
OG: I see that you are due to get a big storm. I hope you don't have any damage and all goes well. Thinking of you!
