One more item Mom brought me this weekend when she visited - she brought me a new orchid - very unusual! I took it in to work, and everyone that has visited my office has admired it.
It is finally raining in Redding! It isn't supposed to last too long, but it sure is nice while it's here. We've gotten over an inch of rain according to one website, and almost 1.5 according to our weather gauge - but I don't know how for to trust it - it is flashing a low battery warning.
