The Seasons: Winter 2006



With the solstice came rain. I am looking out at wet streets and leafless trees. It is winter. Our winter here in the San Francisco Bay area is not harsh -- no snow storms; blizzards are unheard of; daytime termperature rarely falls below 40° F, and even the rains are not very disruptive for those who like outdoor activities. However, three business days before Christmas, the rains could make things difficult for shoppers, and they lengthen commuting time for people going to and returning from work. Traffic reports on the AM radio channel often mention accidents and congestion. Drive with caution.

Winter solitude-
in a world of one color
the sound of wind.
