Sharon Park

To some, the continuing rain is “getting old.” Count neither InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ nor contributing photographer Robb Most among them.

Robb checked out the duck pond at Sharon Park. We selected one photo to include here among many good ones!

This is another reminder of the variability of the rainfall season. I know that few would trade these sun swept days for rain filled […]
