22nd of Dec (sigh), mid afternoon.

It occurred to me that I might just be sending you pictures from my front window of any day from Oct to June, any given year.  You'll just have to take my word for it that this was taken about an hour ago, the temp 10f and falling. Predicted to be minus 18 tonight. Also predicted is a white christmas. 

Doesn't everyone have weather like this? 

Cheers, greetings of the season.

A Family Christmas

In years past, my oldest has done wonderful things for people she did not know. This year her sister is having a family into her apartment for the holidays. They are otherwise homeless.

Emily (previous said Kate) and Christmas guest:

May the season find you well, and hopeful of the future. I am. With children like I have, how can I not?

A couple recent pics

And a picture she took of the 'supermoon', from her balcony.

Also, a headline from today's SF Chronicle:

Man declared a hero for saving rabbit along Highway 101 from massive wildfire

The article says in part:
Apocalyptic images of the Southern California wildfires have taken over social media since the first of the fires broke out Monday night. The Internet celebrated a bright spot amidst all the destruction Thursday.
The video (above) shows a frantic man pulled over along Highway 101 in La Conchita, a small unincorporated community in Ventura County. According to KABC, a news photographer just happened to be driving by Wednesday night and caught the moment on camera.
The man alternates between throwing his hands on his head in disbelief and reaching for something in the flames.
After a long 15 seconds of panicking, he finds what he was looking for. The man picks up a small rabbit and carries it to safety."
Hmmmmm. Well, if it were a video of me, and they'd followed me for a few hours, they might have found:
