It is, or was almost 80 today, low humidity, gorgeous sky and incredible light, which says it all for San Diego. By the way, what is rain?

Heavy overcast, hot & humid. Rain will miss us, but the entire LP of Michigan is being deluged with rain. Never saw so much rain in one place. The remnants of Ike are retaining their shape and hammering every place it moves thru.

It's been sunny and beautiful here......unfortunately, my home area in the states didn't fare as well..........the eye of Hurricane Ike passed directly over them........my son and his family take care of our home and he commented that I wouldn't believe the damage.....it may be weeks before they have power.....luckily we are able to keep in contact with him because I had bought a generator 3 years ago online when another hurricane had been predicted.......not been necessary to use it until now......at least the fridge and freezer work and we can maintain internet contact with them
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

The remnants of Ike went through our area today, where it met a cold front coming in from the north. The biggest part of the rain went a little north of us, but we had a lot of wind, and there are trees down, houses and cars smashed, and several areas without power.

Sadly, one of my dear old friends, one of the ancient oaks in our woods, had the top taken out of it. I hope he can come back from this. I don't know what to do about it...the top was caught in the branches of the surrounding trees, so it didn't come down. It's not a clean break, either...part of it is still connected and the rest is splintered. These trees are over 150' tall. It would cost a fortune to get a tree trimmer up there.
We get by with a little help from our friends
