Winter, spring, summer, or fall

Every season has it's feeling. It's really winter here with snow on the mountains last week and if you peek over the mountains, St. Helena boasts a white cap. In the middle of the hail, the downpour and the sunny bits with a rainbow yesterday, one evening, I felt a warm breeze that must have made it's way all the way from Hawaii where my sis lives. The rain reminds me of raking street gutters to free them from leaves and the pooling water in the pouring rain. My job was the lawn and the leaves and helping my sister and brother fold newspapers at 5:30 in the morning. There is something wise and refreshing about rising early and feeling the biting cold or enveloping fog.
