Yersterday was 20C, stormy, rainy, cloudy, but as I drove to work, low-shining sunbeams lit up the Hartford skyline like a spotlight. I cursed myself for not having the camera ready. I took this shot sometime later, but it was not nearly as dramatic.

Still, it shows a rainy, cloudy Connecticut. I was talking to someone later, at work, and looking out the window, mentioned how much I loved being back in New England. He thought I was being sarcastic since — you know, winter — nut I was looking out on the green, forested hills that stretched off into the distance and I was just telling the truth. I miss Monterey, too, but in the same way — those gloomy, cool days that I love.



  1. Wow, this is the first time I’ve heard (read) that you are happy to be in New England. Well it’s good you are making the adjustment to the ol’ northeast.

  2. Really? Hmmm. I love it bunches more than San Diego, and it’s great being part of a family again.

    I’ve always thought New England was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been.

    Monterey has a kind of rugged beauty, too, that’s different but no less amazing. The bay was always different, every day. Those years I rode my bike to work, I passed it twice a day, and I came to know that bit of water more than I’ve ever known any before or since. No matter how much I love New England, nothing will come close to the love I feel for Monterey Bay.

    But yeah, I do like it here 🙂

  3. Hopefully the weather is better for your birthday today. How’s it feel to get old? haha

  4. Weather was great. Cool, stormy in the afternoon. This guy shared his umbrella with me on the way to the parking lot, which I thought was sweet. By the time I got home, though, and we headed back to Hartford for the American Idols concert, it was sunny and warm, and when we came out, the Hartford night life — such as it is — was in full swing.

    I don’t feel old yet!
