Messing Around before the Next Snow
Having grown up in New England, known for its unpredictable weather, I guess I have an enduring fascination with changes of season and the unpredictable nature of them in the mountains. While we're expecting a storm here at the 3,500' elevation, tomorrow I'm driving down to the Chico area, below 1,000', where they never get a true winter. In fact, the forecast calls for a 60-degree high and possibly a warm sprinkle. Compared to Quincy, it will look quite green and, as far as I'm concerned, it's the beginning of spring. I hope I get time to tip over a few logs and rocks and photograph some bugs. In Quincy, most are already secure in their winter resting places.
