The other main difference from yesterday is that the wind has stopped blowing. I swept the accumulation of leaves off my back porch, but still haven't raked the lawns. There was intermittent overcast, but it still doesn't look like we'll be getting any more rain until Monday, and then it could rain for the next four days. Southern Oregon has gotten a record snowfall already this winter, so if the storm track would move a bit farther south we might get some too, and maybe have enough snowmelt next spring to partly replenish the reservoirs. That could stave of the ultimate drought disaster until 2017 or even 2018, even if we go back to really dry winters next year.
But the two-month stream of sappy holiday programming on the Murder & Glurge channel (aka Hallmark Channel) is over, and it has gone back to murder (which I will watch) and glurge (which I will avoid.) I'm looking forward to the resumption of fictional slaughter. There ought to be more English people murdering one another on PBS as well, including some entirely new murders I haven't seen before. I do like January.
