Vic and I hope that your newspaper arrived dry this morning after six days of that darned pineapple express. We feel like we've been living under a big fire hose. Six solid days of rain belong in Seattle, not here in sunny Southern California.
We're sure that most of you had enough sense to stay dry indoors. Regrettably, we lack such sense. We had things to do outdoors, so we just did them despite the rain.
Vic participated in the Audubon Society's Christmas bird counts Saturday and Sunday this past weekend. Rain or shine, birders go out on their assigned days to count all the birds they can find in their assigned area. Saturday, Vic was assigned to Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park. He trudged over hill and down dale, searching for birds. He saw only four. The birds had enough sense to stay under cover. Fortunately, he heard quite a few calling.
