What a month January 2010 has been: The first two weeks were lovely clear but cold days. The second week of the month news forecasts by the media were alarming all week and all forecasts" said we would be getting twenty inches of rain. Many of us were getting apprehensive. The week of the 17th arrived and on Sunday it was cloudy. Soft rain began on the 17th until Monday the 18th. We received one and a quarter of an inch from that shower. It was that there was a respite between sieges of rain the rest of the week. We received five and a half inches of rain on the 20th and the 21st, then five more inches the 22nd and a full inch at the end of the storm on the 23rd. It had also snowed about four inches as well. The snow had frozen and when I shoveled a path to my bird garden, there was about a two inch layer of solid ice beneath the snow. The snow lasted until the last day of the month, the 31 st. During this week, we also had much hail and very heavy winds especially through the evening and night hours. Nights were noisy with the wind relocating items around the yard and crashing into the house at times. So, my total rainfall measurements for the week are twelve and three quarters of an inch. The Simpsons friends of mine registered over fifteen inches in Pine Hills area. Needless to say, we were glad when it was finally all over. I am very happy to learn that my modular home withstood it well. Our Whiter week we will long remember. The last week of the month was mostly clear but very cold and the temperatures warmed up a bit the last three days of the month. 2. The very first thing I do in the morning after it had snowed during the night is putting much bird seed for the birds. Their source of food is all covered with snow. As a result, I had many many birds dining in my yard. I put the bird seed all in a plastic containers and I had many visitors throughout the following days. I enjoyed seeing so many. I wondered how they spread the word around the neighborhood to let them know I had lots of food for them. I also enjoyed all the Blue Jays activities at my feeder with peanuts. The Black Crows as well. I used up a lot of bird seed those days and kept putting more out every few hours. I have also been putting out a lot of dove and quail food and more wild doves have been visiting me. 3. The lower level of our town hall has a new look. Dorothy Bent who heads up the Town Hall Crafters shows has made new curtains for all the windows. They are lovely and add a nice warmth to the big hall. Dorothy's expertise is making doll clothes which she exhibits and sells during their craft shows. Besides all this, she is always willing and able to do repair work on many of our personal wardrobe needs. 4. Although the snowfall amount was not great, there was a lot of snow around the weekends and we had record crowds of tourists on weekends. It was fun watching children tossing snowballs at each other. 5. Things have been pretty quiet at the town hall this past month. Many meetings had to be rescheduled due to the weather but we all survived. 6. I had never seen snow on the ground last as long as the recent snowfall and it is because it was all ice beneath it all. I did enjoy it all. 7. Now we are looking forward to a new month, and it sounds like there is more rain in store for us and that is just fine with us all. ***I'm Glad I Live In Julian*** The Julian News 3 Today brings a new opportunity to keep your finances as safe and healthy as they can be.

Johanna Hansen's 'Intelligent Design' At Santa Ysabel Art Gallery At Santa Ysabel Art Gallery, February 20 through March 28, 2010, will be Intelligent Design, a one person exhibit featuring the witty and socially sharp clay pieces of well-known San Diego County artist Johanna Hansen. Intelligent Design is an installation made up of many clay and mixed media creatures - all swimming or flying in the same direction, expressing Hansen's observations about the evolution of nature, man and the man- made. Reception for the Artist will be Saturday, February 20, 4-8 PM. Admission is free. The public is invited. Johanna Hansen was born in Lakeside, California, and has lived there most of her life. Even though she studied painting and printmaking at San Diego State University, she has always worked primarily in clay and mixed media and is a full-time artist, beginning her career as a middle school art teacher. Hansen says her ideas come from the "wealth of subject matter in the everyday". In her clay sculptures, she confronts a variety of topics with whimsy, humor and satire. Her use of vibrant color, simple and symbolic forms, and the directness in her 'message' clearly reflect her love of folk art and her years of working with children. She sees her pieces as "little dialogues with my audience...vignettes... ditties...haiku...ratherthan epics..." You might call Johanna Hansen an artist's artist. Her fellow fellow artists talk about and admire her work, and many of her colorful pieces are purchased by them. Her own artist's statement explains a little the appeal her work has for her collectors, artists and non-artists alike: "1 tell stories. Anything from falling in love to reality T.V. to the horrors of war... if I stumble upon it and it matters, I just might turn it into a piece. I was raised on J.C. Penney, Sears and just two channels on television. My street was named Sunny Lane. My sister was runner up Miss Lakeside and I was not. I taught middle school art and learned more from my preteen students than I've learned anywhere else. I married someone I admired. I buried a baby son as I carried another inside of me. Both my parents are gone, yet they let me keep the best of them with me and I use it every single day. My material of choice is clay. Clay takes form, records impression, and accepts color with ease. Expressively, clay is fragile, as is my subject matter." Johanna Hansen has exhibited in Southern California galleries and museums for the past thirty years. This is her second exhibit at Santa Ysabel Art Gallery. She lives with her husband and their son. Santa Ysabel Art Gallery is located at 30352 Highway 78 at Highway 79 in Santa Ysabel, seven miles below Julian. Admission to the gallery is free. Gallery hours are Thursday through Monday, 11AM 5 PM, and by appointment. The gallery is closed Tuesday and Wednesday. For more information call (760) 765-1676.
