(Gloves in a school garden.)
It rained in earnest all day yesterday; showers and blue holes in pied clouds so far today.
Feels good. In all my years here I’ve never seen the landscape—the grasses, the understory plants, even the trees—look so brown and discouraged and brittle as last month. I’ve lived here long enough to have seen a couple other droughts, too.
What we need now of course is lots of gentle steady rains, not flash-flood landslide downpours. It’ll certainly be interesting watching what Angel Island does over the next few years, on the side that burned last month.
