Monday/ to San Francisco, one more time

There was no sign of snow as I left my house this morning at 5 am, but then as we boarded the plane at Seattle-Tacoma airport a few snowflakes mixed in with the light rain, came down.  The pilot said he could still get us out there without needing to call for a de-icing of the wings of the plane.   I work in the city office for my final week on the project (yay!), and is cold here in San Francisco as well.

Here’s the scene at the bottom of Powell Street where it meets market. The cable cars are still running, there are still plenty of tourists on the streets – and homeless people as well, some wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.
