Say whaaat?

What do you mean there won't be any snow?
Much to my, and my dog Billy's, disappointment, it does not snow in California. I wish it did, as it simply does not feel like the holidays without it. At least there's the mountains to save us all and let us have our dose of snow.

I should not be complaining though, as there is at least some sign of seasons here, unlike in Southern California, where it's sunny year-round. The rain and the yellow leaves are appreciated, even if they do not fit my idea of winter. :)

Orchids and Rain Songs

The rain streams down like harp–strings from the sky;
The wind, that world–old harpist sitteth by;
And ever as he sings his low refrain,
He plays upon the harp–strings of the rain.
