Winter storm

Well, the new year started with a bang in the Bay area. Hurricane force winds woke us up from a sound sleep the other night, with the sound of wind and rain trying to break thru our windows and rip our apartment from the rest of the building. Sasha was alarmed. She was even more alarmed when Dave took the puglets out in the wind and rain to do their business. There was no interest. The pugs almost got knocked over by the wind.

The roads were a mess. Bridges were shut down, highways were closed. It took me 2 and 1/2 hours to get into work. Gave me plenty of time to take pics of Marin underwater, from my car.

We rushed to our house the next morning to make sure it was intact. It is. Looks like there was quite a bit of debris from broken trees and branches, tho.

There is one that benefits from all the rain -- our tangerine tree!
