We haven't posted anything for a couple of days, my apologies. The DrsC have been enroute to our home in Wyoming, and are now "in residence."
The transition has been dramatic, from Tuesday's late spring at sea level to Friday's early spring at an altitude of 6000 feet. It isn't warm here and many deciduous trees have yet to leaf out. The mountains around our valley are still snowy.
Those aren't complaints, you understand. We're volunteers after all, we chose to make the move knowing full well WY wouldn't yet have "shirt-sleeves" weather.
We'll be out of breath for a couple of weeks until we adjust to the thin air, especially after climbing stairs. It comes with this (beautiful) territory.
Plus, it feels good to leave California's craziness behind. For the next several months those are someone else's problems, someone else's nightmare from which there is no waking.
