It’s 7 a.m., 53° and headed to 59° with more rain this afternoon. Details for the next 10 days are here.

Sentences Diagrammed. Oh learned Missionites or those who grew up at the hands of nuns making you diagram sentences, here are the opening lines of great novels diagrammed. A favorite?

More maps. These from Urbane, and reported on by SF Weekly. 

Enjoy the day!
