Rodeo Drive Christmas Week - Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

This is what it has looked like over the past week on Rodeo Drive.
Wet and empty.  Sales have been slow on the street at a crucial time for luxury retail.
But we had a hint of sun this morning so the deluge might finally be over.
But I'm not going to complain about the weather
especially after seeing photos taken by my friends in Europe.

Here is a snowy lane in the winter wonderland of Günne, Germany.
The only thing missing is a horse drawn sleigh.
