The Smell of Concrete in the Morning

I was walking to the store (for bleach) this morning and happened to walk up 112th. And today, for whatever reason, eveyrone was out cleaning their sidewalks with a hose.

That smell!

That reminded me of my youth in Los Angeles. You can't do that anymore.

You haven't been able to use a hose to clean the sidewalks since about the drought of 1978. That is why we have so many gardeners with electric blowers, you can't use a hose anymore. Trading one stereotype for another.

But when I was young, the smell was - vacation.
