It is 8:44 a.m. and these photos were taken earlier.  It is now 53˚ and expected to rise into the 74˚. Details for the next ten days here.

Today’s Block: Folsom to Harrison, 16th to 15th.

I ventured out to the block of Muni’s home this morning. It’s a massive home and beautiful in the simplicity of its structure. The few other buildings are filled with odd and lovely places  including a bookbinder who we visited on another occasion.

With the light good early on, so much the better to sign on to document your block. Don’t wait! Let us know what day and block you would like at info@missionlocal.com.

You can see a map of all of the blocks here. The blocks in grey are being saved for others who have signed up. Let us save a block for you as well.

And there it is, a Muni home. Photo by Lydia Chávez
