It’s a gray morning with a chance of rain for which I am most grateful. Any small amount of precipitation is most welcome. There is also a breeze this morning that will blow out the worst polluted air in the nation as of yesterday. It is a sad day when we reach that point, which usually happens in the summer here when the high heat cooks the pollutants to make them even worse. Our dry weather this winter has acted as an incubator for the pollutants. We were beginning to look like China.
I’m grateful that I get to stay home all day. No where to go. No one to see. First of its kind in two weeks. Tomorrow, though, I’m up early with places to be, people to see. I’m delivering all those Christmas gifts to the family I adopted as that is the day the facility at which they are staying finds it convenient. I’m planning to go further into downtown afterwards to take in some Christmas sights and have lunch.

For now, I’m enjoying my day at home even if the weather is gray and my view a bit dismal:
