Friday Night Potpourri

Random thoughts on a Friday night:

  • It was raining hard on my way home tonight. We're in a drought here in CA and need all the H2O we can get.
  • We have a mountain here in the Bay Area, Mt. Diablo (Devil's Mountain), about 35 miles east of San Francisco (right in my back yard). Although only 3,849 ft. high, with California's vast valleys, etc., the viewable land area from its summit is the second grandest view on the face of the earth. Second only to Kilimanjaro in Africa. It really is a great view from up there. On a clear day one can see Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.
  • Speaking of Mt. Diablo, it rained heavily last night, and the snow level was down to about 1,500 ft. This morning the upper half of the mountain was a brilliant white. By sundown, most of the snow had washed away, leaving only the top few hundred feet white.
  • The Oscars are coming up, and that means I'll be an awards ceremony widower.
  • No matter who you are, I caught you doing something very embarrassing on Google Street recently.
  • Pitchers and catchers report tomorrow
