12.20 Take the Bad with the Good and Rolling with the Punches


It's been 2 months since we've been up to the hideaway and when we got here this weekend, we walked into a flooded hallway and bathroom. A pipe burst under the bathroom sink.
Well, as bad as it was, the good thing is it had to have burst very recently because we only lost 2000 gallons. Since Jimmy kind of works/volunteers for the water company up here, he was able to find that out quickly. A leak like that would waste 1000 gallons a day. Imagine if it had burst 60 days ago!
This weekend definitely has not been our best weekends up here. There's lot of water damage. But Jimmy's aldread replaced the broken pipe, he got to play with the wet vac he got for his birthday last year, and, um...the floors needed to be replaced anyway...this is just sooner than we had planned for.
But it's snowing, so the weekend had it's peaceful moments, too.

12.15 #christmastreeoftheday

I think I'm going to have more trees than there are days till Christmas.
This one is in front of the 2nd tallest building I'm San Francisco.
Hopefully I'll get back to it at night because the photos I've seen of it lit up in the dark are beautiful. It's not exactly in my immediate neighborhood, so I'm not holding my breath for that snapshot.

12.8 Christmas Tree of The Day

Last year I started taking pics of the various trees in this fair city. Almost every office building has one, so it will be a while before I run out of trees to shoot. While I did shoot this one last year, I couldn't help but take another snapshot of it today because I walk by it almost daily.
