The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

See, it can get cold in California.

"In the depths of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer."
- Albert Camus

Sorry Al, I fear this will be something I'll never learn.

This is one of several water truck filling points for fire suppression in Annadel.


  1. brrr. i'm already tired of freezing rain and ice. power is back (for now) but has gone out 3 or 4 times already today - our first day of winter. *sigh*

  2. Reminds me of a bad ice storm I experienced in Missouri, back in 1994.

    Frozen or not, the formation is very pretty.

    Peace :)

  3. Looks cold but - don't get mad at me for saying this - I do prefer cold winter to hot summer. ;) Good thing I live in Canada, eh?

  4. I feel cold just looking at it, in stark black and white compliments that feeling

  5. musta been pretty cold, strange for California isn't it.
