Are we really in for another few days of off and on showers? So says the weather forecast (except for tomorrow which looks good).

Report InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ: “.1” to report this morning. Now 21.75” season to date.”

The lovely photo of oak and horses was taken by Irene Searles who writes:  “Driving past this tree often sees me pulling a u-turn as it continues to captivate me. It sits up a hill, and in this stormy weather there is gorgeous light. The horses are a bonus. Portola Valley, California”
