The morning light illuminated this turkey flag in a leafy stretch on Oak Avenue. Similar flags can be seen on a number of local homes, replacing previous Halloween-themed banners. We’re not sure how the whole flag thing got started, but many homes in Menlo have been flying seasonal colors for a couple years now.
There’s just enough haze in the air this Thanksgiving Day in Menlo that the Bay Area Air Quality Management District issued it’s first “Spare the Air” day of the fall/winter season. So no wood-burning fires today!
