It Does Rain In Southern California

LA MESA -- Living for many years here in the Village area has continued to make my wife and me very happy and very content. With the recent dampish weather and cooler temperatures mornings have been just a bit damp. So thought I would share a bit of a view of my front yard area on just such a dampish and cool morning. This is generally what I wake to. Really wanted to capture it on canvas. Hope you enjoy it.

In addition, the intensity of the relationship between home prices and gas prices may have weakened as the fuel economy of American cars has improved.
