The drenching continues in SoCal. But up here in CenCal we had a dry day in the mid-70's. The television news is still talking about the tornados in the Sacramento area yesterday (and why it took 35 minutes to get a tornado warning up after the first funnel was spotted -- we don't do tornadoes here too often). Since Tuesday is "day off" I got the lawnmower out and some good clean-up done in the backyard. The apricot tree is all but done blooming. The fruit-cocktail tree (apricot, plum, peach) is just starting to show color -- white, pink, and purple.
