Last week's table was a hope for better weather - it didn't happen. Today, it is pouring. Not just pouring, but really raining. And it is cold. (Yes, cold is relative. Here in our part of "sunny California," anything below 40 degrees is considered cold.) This morning it was 31 degrees outside. Then it warmed up to 44 degrees only to bring rain. Lots of it. Another "fun" Winter in Humboldt County, California.
So, Pat set the table this week with power failures, mud slides, swollen rives, flooding, and road closures in mind.....a rustic table in darker tones with plenty of lanterns in case the lights go out.
