Big Snow Today

Thanksgiving is behind us so this is going to be a pretty common event for the next TOO MANY months. We took advantage of a day above freezing the day after Thanksgiving and got the holiday yard stuff up. Yay us!

Winter is Painfully Close

Yes. It is beautiful and I do get out in the snow with the big boy cameras BUT…that doesn’t mean I have to like it! Remember, I grew up in Kenya. Winter is not my favorite season. This is our first snowfall of 2018. I’ll grin (not likely) and bear it for the next several months.

Winter Camera Hiatus is Broken

I used to love being out with the cameras on "mild" winter days. That came to a quick, unplanned end a couple years ago when a devastating injury from a fall on the ice took me completely off my feet for close to six months. Many of you know that story so I won't bore you with that again. It has created an ongoing fear of outdoor winter excursions.

This and several following posts will briefly break that cycle. It's not so bad when there is snow around...deep, deep snow. We donned the snow shoes and headed to one of many of our beautiful county parks. Great trails take you through a winter wonderland. In addition, we just got home from a mid-winter warmup in Hawaii. When I say we just got home, I mean JUST! We arrived home as the snow flurries began which then became over 20" of snow over the next 18 hours.  Snowfall and Hawaii.  Stay tuned.
