Last Winter, Down by the Bay

We were promised a big dump of snow yesterday that never materialized. Oh sure, we got an inch or two, but nothing like what I was hoping for. So here's a snowy picture taken last winter, when we got far more snow than we usually get on the west coast. One thing I miss about living back east is the snow in winter!

Later that day...Argh! Just got back from walking the dogs in a torrential downpour. Of course I got stuck in the mud on a back road, almost in the ditch. It's raining so hard, the road was like quicksand in places. Luckily my friend Marilyn came by...after much huffing and puffing, we still didn't get the car out so she called Bob, her neighbour, on her cell phone (might have to get one of those). Bob showed up in his four-wheel drive (might have to get one of those too) and pulled me out. Thanks so much to Marilyn and Bob for the rescue!
