I loved Monday’s rainstorm. I lived in Seattle for several years, and while there, acquired a rainy day state of mind. However, last week that fair city was snowed-in. Old friends who still live there said their back yard looked like a winter wonderland. They live on one of Seattle’s many hills, so they couldn’t even get out of their driveway — it was a good thing they stocked up on groceries before the snowflakes started to fall.
I hope that Monday’s storm brought us some snow in Southland’s mountains so the snow bunnies can hit the slopes.
Thank goodness our little storm didn’t hit earlier, or it might have been a very soggy beginning for the Pasadena Showcase House of Design’s popular “Empty House” party last Friday evening.
This year’s design house again is in our community, on the Flintridge side of the city. Since 1966, there have been eight showcase homes here in La Cañada Flintridge, three of them in recent years. The actual opening of this year’s featured property, in all its redesigned glory, doesn’t take place until April 15.
