The First Breath of Winter

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we are at sea level, so we don’t get snow. But fall can sometimes be short lived and move directly into fallen leaves, fallen temperatures and lots of rain. And fog, of course, but then we can have fog in almost any season. I put this photo through a filter to emphasize how cold (for us) the weather was last week – uncharacteristically dipping into the high 30s F at night. I know, I know – that’s positively balmy for those of you in Canada or in the midwest or northeast states. But here, that requires us to pull out our down jackets when we are out.

  1. Wow. I really like this. Last week was something, wasn’t it? Just not a fan on cold weather and yes, 30s is nothing compared to some places around the world!🥴🥴🥴

  2. I have a friend who now lives on Okinawa where the temperatures are a lot like on Hawaii and she finds 15 degrees Celsius quite cool now! I always have to laugh when I hear her complaining about it. 😄

    1. Okinawa??? I lived on Okinawa when it was part of the Vietnam War zone. Back then it was a third would country except for the military bases. I understand that it is very different now. But I wouldn’t have traded the experience of living for two years in a third world country. It COMPLETELY changes your perspective!!!!

      1. I can imagine it would! Nowadays it’s becoming more and more a tourist hotspot which is why my friend and her partner are about to build a little boutique hotel there. 😊
