Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. Those of you still stuck in San Jose should appreciate this. The latest big controversy in Eureka was the planting of rows of palm trees outside the county jail. It seems that state regulations only allow certain types of trees planted next to jails for security reasons. So here in sunless Eureka, we now have palm trees. Someone thought it was so funny, they snuck over to the jail at night and planted a dozen pink flamingoes to complete the scene.
Also I need to provide an update on the entry for 8/6. The weekly Ferndale paper reported the high temp for that week to be 79, so I don’t trust my truck’s thermometer one bit now. It sure seemed hotter than 69.
