A Postcard from Undina: Happy Rainy Thanksgiving!

I know that for many people rain isn’t something pleasant or desirable. But here, in California, after several years of serious drought, rain is always welcome. But even more so today: it brought us a beautiful Thanksgiving gift of “Good” Air Quality Index – after a week of fluctuations between “Unhealthy” and “Very Unhealthy” because of the devastating and the deadliest in California history Camp Fire that is still ruining our beautiful state (it’s 75% contained as of now).

I’m thankful for the rain. I’m thankful that my loved ones are alive and safe this holiday. I’m thankful I have people with whom I will be celebrating this holiday that hasn’t been mine when I grew up but which I grew to appreciate over years living in the U.S.

 

Happy Rainy Thanksgiving 2018

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!

    • Thank you, Fragrant Wanderer. It’s so great to see the green color on the map for the whole area: I’ve never thought that my favorite purple color might be so upsetting for me (that’s how they color-code “Very Unhealthy” air condition).

  1. Happy Thanksgiving. I have good memories of the holidays. Even after we left the States my mother continued to celebrate it. It falls on, or around my birthday, and it was always a double celebration.
    Been thinking a lot of you all in California, my family are still there. Rain on. Lots of love. ❤️

    • It was a good Thanksgiving long weekend, and we’re still eating turkey soup (made from the remaining parts of the turkey I cooked) – so I’m still taking holiday cheers.
