October 1: The Rainy Season Began Early

We had our first rain on the first day of October - only .15 inch, but it was real rain and it was relatively early. (It's hard to see the rain without clicking on the photos to make them bigger. Then again, this would only impress a SoCal rain geek like me!)
The really good thing about it was it helped contain the month-long Day Fire. (this photo was taken on September 26, just as the winds kicked it up again.)

Catching Up: Fall Arrived In SoCal

I took these pictures on campus on September 26, just a few days after the equinox.
Also right on time for Autumn, the Monarch butterflies arrived and the paperwhites in our yard have begun to bloom.
