Snow in the park and a jungle in Noe.



On my way to the weekly skating event in the park last Sunday, I spied what appeared to be a wide strip of packed snow on the grass. Nobody seemed to be using it for sledding/sledging purposes save for a few dogs. Instead, people were milling about just sort of looking at the snow as if it were going to start performing tricks. Who put the snow there? It certainly didn't come to the park naturally. The last time it snowed in SF was 1976, if I remember correctly.


The above house is one I walk by in Noe Valley on a fairly regular basis. It makes me think of Rousseau & I so enjoy looking at it. The other day, I finally snapped a picture of it to show you all. Apropos picture, I never ever see anyone out front taking photographs, so I suppose this lovely house is not yet in any of the SF guide books. When it does make the guides, there will probably be hoards out front snapping pics like they do in front of the houses on Steiner aka the Painted Ladies. Or maybe folk don't dig Rousseau as much as I do?

  1. I would most definitely be taking photos of that house. I love it - and the detail on the fence/gates is amazing too.

    1. I had to go back and really look at it--that gate is really rad!

    1. It really is reminiscent of his work, right? I really dig it.

  3. That house is stunning.

    I know sometimes they import snow to local parks for the kids. I assume that's what they did there. But no one was playing in it? Weird.

    1. The house is super stunning. You know,

      I figured it was for the kiddies, but there were none my first look-see. Later, I spied the humans taking pictures of their dogs walking along the snow path.
