What am I doing this month? That would be "not much" to start out. Here's our 10-day forecast:

Snow?  You get snow?  Maybe I could move up there?

My last day of work is this coming Thursday (Friday I'm on vacation & Saturday I am officially retired.  My usual graphic for this is Snoopy dancing, but it's not on the list  Razz)

My sister and I are talking of moving out of the Central Valley because of the water situation, and because we would like to live in an area where it RAINS!  I have poked around Red Bluff, but we haven't settled on anywhere. 

We are supposed to have rain here tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday, but we will see.  It usually ends up "Fresno north & Bakersfield south".  Visalia gets missed completely.   Sad

We were supposed to get a little snow, but they've changed it to rain. The farther north you get, the HOTTER it gets. We never expected that when we moved here. Our summers are absolutely brutal. California - What are you doing this month? - Page 32 671790

Just a question.  How is the air quality in the Sacramento Valley (No. Valley)?  It gets brutal here in Fresno.  I can't imagine what it is like in Visalia (South).  Actually, the rain is usually north of Merced. Razz

I started walking around the block 4 times at night.  Ken bought a pedometer so I can adjust for my stride.  The air is so "clean" at this time of the year.  Why not go to the gym with my husband?  Well, no fancy clothes, it's free, no "see and be seen" atmosphere, no colds or flu bugs, no mosquitoes at this time of the year and it's quiet.  What prompted me?  I fell getting up from my computer chair Embarassed  and decided to do something about being out of shape.  The pain in my hips and knees is already reduced. Very Happy If Kelejan can walk to town, I can walk, also. Thank you for the inspiration.

Mellen, congrats on retirement! smiles

We're way north of Sacramento and our air quality is always good up here.

Sorry about your fall, Sanderson. Glad you're getting back in shape. Today will be my first day back on the treadmill after my long recovery from probably 2 kidney stones. They really put my shirt in the dirt and almost ruined Christmas, but I'm feeling pretty good, now. Cool

Sometime it takes a fall like that (clumsy move with no recovery) to be an inspiration.  I'm glad you are finally feeling better, CN.

Winter is a great time for collecting Starbuck's coffee grounds.  People drink more hot drinks and the other gardeners I have to compete with in my part of town aren't collecting right now.  I have a lot of dancing on the bags to do to break up the pucks. Very Happy  California - What are you doing this month? - Page 32 Coffee10

Rain is supposed to start here (Visalia) at midnight tonight.  Hopefully this will not again go around us.  

+1 Sanderson:  Hope you are getting along swimmingly (or walkingly?)

Thanks!   Actually, I am on vacation today.  They had a luncheon for me yesterday because my supervisor was going to be gone today.  I told her it would be anti-climactic to hear all that hail & farewell then have to work today.  I'm DONE!   cheers

IT'S SNOWING! Slushy, sloppy stuff, but it is sticking. As soon as it's light enough, I'll try to get some pics. Shocked

It's still coming down hard, and the temp isn't going up (30 degrees). This is what I saw when I went out to get the newspaper. 

California - What are you doing this month? - Page 32 Snow10

The snowflakes are as large as grape tomatoes. As soon as it reaches its peak, I'll go back out with the camera. It only snows here every 2-3 years, so it's definitely a camera-worthy event.

Post this in Holy Snow Batman! Folks won't believe CA gets snow except in the mountains.

Fresno gets snow every 10-20 years!

We get snow about the same, 2-3 years though we have also gotten it a couple years in a row or a couple times during a year.  We're over 1500 ft elevation though, so it's not actually an anomaly like it is in Fresno!

We're only about 500', so even when the surrounding mountains get it, we usually don't, and when we do, it doesn't last long.

I just planted some seeds, found another pear tomato (which I gutted, ate, and saved the seeds), and found my first little boy blossom on my indoor cukes.
