I was in the Bay Area Sun - Wed, doing the San Fran thing. Tuesday was one of those classic Bay Area Days, 30 degrees in the am, 50 at noon, back to 40 in the evening. Phil and I barted over to Embarcadero station and walked the length of Market St. to Union Square, popping into hotel and office lobbies checking out the Christmas displays. The Poinsettia Tree at the foot of Sutter and Market, amazing, the Polar Bear pond across the street on Market was enchanting. They ice rink was set up at Union Square, and Cirque de Solei had MANY costumed performers dancing about promoting their show playing at ATT park. So San Fran. We went to the Cheesecake Factory on the 7th floor of the Macy's building and shared a Tiramisu Cheesecake (yes, a moment on the lips, forever on the hips) while standing on the balcony taking in the whole Union Square scene. After and great deal of window shopping and no buying (I'm the worst shopper ever) and made our way back to Embarcadero and shared the train with all the commuters. I worked in that neighborhood for 9 years, and it still feels like and 2nd home to me . . .
Arrived home Wed at 4PM to about 8" of the most beautifully FLUFFY white stuff. The hill was closed, so we cruised out Pasquale, which was icy but safe. Folks seemed to be in no rush. The widened turns from last summers road work greatly improved visibility and travel. It is warm today (40ish) much better than the 15degrees Bill Carter reported to me on Monday. So, now the tree is up, pine cones painted gold, ribbons and branches EVERYWHERE, and looking forward to decorating the firehouse tomorrow for the kids and SANTA on Saturday. Be sure to come on down for punch and snacks, and watch the kids have fun, and tell a friend or neighbor.
Happy Holidays!
The hill is being used today, but only by the very brave. It's still a bit slick, though blushing up a bit.
