The Moon

The past couple of nights I have wished that I could paint. Oil, water color, whatever the medium, I just wanted to paint. The moon has been so bright, clear and shining down on the Lower Lawn and the Meadow so beautifully. I would have taken a picture but it was 2 am and about 2 degrees. With time exposure, I might have gotten frost bite. But it is still in my mind. I wish you could see it, too.

Still Snowing

Storm of the Week, Part 3

This photograph of our outdoor table shows how much snow we have gotten in the past week through three storms. And it is still snowing. This storm is drifting a little more than the previous two.

The unofficial temperature is 34 degrees; the snow is a good insulator.
