Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Days 229-230: Fall Weather on a Different Coast

Wednesday was relatively mild, foggy, and cloudy. It was a good day to just stay inside and work, enjoying the cozy gas stove in the corner of the living room.

Thursday was colder, clear, bright, and sunny. I went for a run in the afternoon during a break from the hospital and could appreciate what remained of the autumn leaves lingering on the trees. Many more bare branches around here than at home in Sac.

Last night, the arctic freeze weather pattern brought in a mixture of rain and snow just in time for this morning's commute. Big, wet snowflakes were still falling just now (6:30am) when I went to put some stuff back in the car in the hospital parking lot. There's not much accumulation on the ground, but the trees and cars are trimmed in white. Pretty!
