holiday update

We've put up the tree early, so we can celebrate locally before heading north for Christmas. Warm temps means we could go high and catch a tree at 4000 feet, where the noble and subalpine firs live - nice trees for the $5 Forest Service permit! Weather forecasts are suggesting cold weather on the way; we'll see how that impacts the season. We've had little enough rain, it would be odd if we went straight to snow (unlikely at 50' elevations, but not unknown). Hope everyone reading this has a fine December holiday season!
