What are the odds?

What are the odds that we'd be in San Francisco when there was an earthquake felt in New York?  Well, that's exactly what happened.  We were on vacation in California when the earthquake happened.  My husband and son were playing golf and the girls and I wandered around Chinatown on an unusually clear day.  Oh, the riot of colors!  Here's one of my favorite photos of the day, filled with the lanterns that adorned many of the balconies.

Of course, we did make it back to New York for the hurricane.  Now, things are getting back to normal, though our house will be emptier since we won't have friends stopping by to take showers.  Everything's getting ready for the start of school -- I can't believe it's already September.

I hope you had a good summer.  I certainly did.

Oh the irony! And that it was not too long ago that you didn't even have enough water for your own family to take showers.
