A Fall Sunrise in Tehachapi......

It's worth getting up early in Tehachapi, just to witness our spectacular sunrises. Yesterday the Santa Ana winds started and they bring such a clarity to our mountains. These are usually high winds that come from the desert and bring very dry air. We always expect them at this time of year. To me, they are filled with high energy and just make you feel alive. The downfall to these winds, is the extreme fire danger that they bring to the southern California mountains.

I also turned off our wind turbine for most of the day yesterday - believe it or not, too much wind is not good for these contraptions! If you look closely in the photo, you can see all the giant turbines that line the hills to our east.

Today just might be a good day to finish the "deep" housecleaning. Just our bedroom and bathroom left. I think it would be a great day for that, and then maybe a brisk walk outdoors later.

Oh, and don't forget - Sunday is the last day to leave a comment on the "October Sock Give A Way" post. Monday, Nov. 1st, I'll announce the winner of a pair of hand cranked women's socks.

Have a wonderful Thursday!
