Arriving in Carmel in between storms, we found our hotel with no power.  Fortunately the nearby mission was OK.


With power still out in parts of Carmel, the storm arrived over head in time for the break between shows, and continued in an audible drumbeat on the roof throughout the second concert after which the public exited into a downpour.  The intimacy of the mission, the warmth of the longtime fans  and the proximity to Christmas makes these concerts very special to us - downpour or not.

Casey (10th in our countdown -Christmastime is almost here!)  will be going back to the island of Manhattan where he comes from for his mother's  7 fish Christmas Eve dinner and he'll spend the rest of the holiday seeing friends.

Remember that we'll be on NBC's TODAY tomorrow Wednesday at 8.50am and Thursday at 10.50am.
