The pond's still full of water, but notably empty of ducks this morning.
They may have had the day off; apparently April Fools' Eve is now a state holiday in California. Something about chafing scissors, or an untidy framework? Anyway, traffic on the roads was also notably light, which is kind of alarming; if a government holiday that no one (including the ranger who told me about it this morning, having first learned of it when she showed up for work) has heard of has that much effect on commute-hours traffic, then far too much of the workforce is in a position to take minor government holidays.
Oh, well. It's not a holiday for me. Better get back to work.
