Orange County Winter

We got rain on Wednesday night.

Rain is always a notable event in Orange County.

On Thursday, I took a few photos (very early in the morning!) on my way to physical therapy.

(By the way, early in the morning is a point of view.)

I couldn’t resist early morning photos because we had clouds (!) and sunshine (!) and rain in some places (!) all at the same time.

I arrived at PT freezing from roaming around stormy beaches in just a tank top.

(I try to wear tank tops on PT days so Paul Newman has easy access.)

How cold was the morning?

My car thermometer read 57F/14C as I drove up the coast.

I was grateful to be wrapped in a blanket and a heating pad as soon as I walked in.

Paul Newman had barely touched me when I said, “Ow!”

“Really?” he said skeptically.

I quieted.

There was no need to tell him how much photography gear I was hauling around prior to my appointment, right?

(Also?  Cold weather never seems to help …!)

It seemed like he had barely tortured touched me, and I was done.

When I walked back outside, I was amazed at how much MORE beautiful the day had become while I was at my appointment.

I didn’t want to stress out my arm …

So, I limited myself to (only) five stops for photos on the way home.

After all, who needs to do all those holiday errands when there are CLOUDS in the sky to be photographed?

I absolutely love when we get weather.
