LIFE'S ALIVE IN EVERYTHING - Spring In Sunny Cal

(04/21/2003)

By Bob Weaver

These Sunny Cal photos were taken yesterday on a bright and sunny spring day (Easter 2003) from Chloe to Big Bend, and up and down the side roads in between..

A welcome sight to behold - the coming of Spring - after a long and difficult winter.

Early February 17th about 2 a.m., I went out in the yard to snap a picture of our Japanese Maple, its branches covered with thick ice, a predictor of a storm to remember. A short time later the electric went off, to be reconnected a week later.

We wondered if the tree would survive. Yesterday it was alive and brilliant.
