We’re in a drought here in California. Today the thermometer was in the 70s, when it’s supposed to be 30 degrees colder. The trees in my backyard are blooming. II’m usually not a huge fan of winter, but I miss it. It’s supposed to be here and it’s not. We had a cold snap in late November/early December, and I got a few photos of this while monitoring out in Marin at the same site where the egret and grebe photos came from. So maybe if I post some winter-y photos, the storms and rain will come.
