What I hate about California

I like winter.  I like rain, and wind, and storms, and even a trace of snow, if I don’t have to shovel it.

Unfortunately, we get about 3 weeks of winter here, it seems.  It isn’t even February yet, and spring is already bustin’ out all over.

To wit: I was looking out my back window this afternoon, and this is what I saw

The first robin of spring is here in my yard

 

The trees are still bare, but the birds are back among the buds.

 

I want more winter!!

But the robins are nice, too.  They migrate up to Canada for the summer and are just passing through.  We’ll see them again in September or October as they head south for the winter, short though it may be.
