Although we don't usually see four distinct seasons here in the Bay Area, life in Sunol certainly does change during the autumn season. Growing up here in Sunol, I don't remember noticing as a child, the brilliant colors of the trees when they changed in the autumn; I guess you cherish those moments more as you get older. And I don't remember the rainy weather being so early in the season as it is now. Several years ago there was a small general store at the top of Kilkare Canyon, we called it the "Little Store". During the autumn, locals would gather at the store to place their bets on when Sinbad Creek, which parallels Kilkare Road, would start its seasonal run. If I could I would bet that this year the creek is going to start running very soon. I love the sounds of the creek, during the autumn and spring season the water gently trickles over the rocks; during the winter's storms, there are the loud, thundering sounds of the rocks rolling against each other and the spring brings a million croaking frogs. Sometimes I drive the length of Kilkare Road with my car's windows open just to listen to the creek.

On October 23, in recognition of National Make A Difference Day, parents and students of Sunol Glen School rolled up their sleeves and gave up a Saturday to work on small projects around the school. Please join me in applauding these Sunol Glen "Angels"; parents, Clyde and Sharon Morgan, Nancy Davis, Maria Snedeker and Ralph and Lori Nielsen. Lori said, "A special thank you to two of our students who also participated on Saturday, Melissa Morgan and Arin Snedeker".
