February 2, 2015 - Happy Ground Hog Day!

I hope you all had a great Ground Hog Day, and that the rest of the winter will be good. Here in California good would mean that it actually starts to rain, and rains for several days (weeks?). We are really low in the water levels around the state. San Francisco hasn't had a dry January in 165 years, but they did this year. If it doesn't start to precipitate there are going to be some very serious consequences for all of us.

Not much happened to day, other than my 22 mile bike ride. It was nice to get out on the bike and go for a couple of hours. I rode out to the Cabrillo National Monument, and challenged some hills, and it was fun. The real fun was the ride back down, as I was able to simply coast and nearly hit 35 mph, and it was for more than a mile at that speed (gives you an idea how steep it was going up).

The girls are with us for the next couple of days, and it is always good to have them here. Stacy and Jackie are really developing their identities and they have distinct personalities coming out, with Jackie being the more spontaneous one, and Stacy looking to get more information before making a decision. I just hope they continue in this mode, as it has been fun so far.

Jason has no appointments for tomorrow, so I might get another bike ride in, and then we'll see where the day takes us. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
