Yes folks we have cool temps (OK cold at night for us!)returning to Southern California this week!
It has been an amazing run of warm , clear days throughout January and February but they are now overcast and we had rain all day Wednesday and the local forecast calls for more wet stuff Friday through Sunday.
The clouds are starting to loom above Corona ,rolling in from the Pacific across the Cleveland National Forest. The home in the photo has been undergoing renovation for the last few years. It was built in the late 1800’s and once sported a second story also with a full wrap around porch. The gardens have many specimen trees and the original carriage house still stands just to the right of the main house. The home is located on Grand Blvd,once a race track for the speed record setters including Barney Oldfield ,but that is a story for another day…
We have no outdoor plans this weekend so that is all fine by me!
The full snow moon will be out on Friday Feb. 18th but it will be too cloudy here to get a decent photo in the night sky. This moon is also known as the full Hunger moon because by this time the Winter has tightened its grip on the land making hunting difficult with game scarce.
