I got up at 7am to get a cup of coffee. It's still pitch-dark here at that time. However, on my way back to bed, I noticed the moon and I had to get my camera. I tried taking some pictures of it the other night using the tripod, but it was pretty high up. It looked like, well ... like a moon in the sky. I didn't get anything all that neat looking. By the time we see the moon at our house, it's really high up. However, it's on the other side of the house in the mornings and I got this picture. It's still not the best, but it's better than the ones I took the other night. I didn't bother with the tripod because it's too cold. It's 11 degrees outside and I was standing in my jammies with bare feet. My pants are silk-like and it's amazing how cold they get. I got this one shot though, so that was good enough. Back to bed to enjoy my coffee!
We got a light dusting of snow two nights ago. It wasn't much, maybe about a half inch, but it never warmed up for it to melt much. We're supposed to get more tomorrow night and possibly hit single digits soon. I hear WY was supposed to be down to 0 degrees, so we've been lucky we haven't seen those temps yet. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous with the sun shining, even though it never got past the mid 30s. Technically, winter doesn't start until December 21st. I guess that's not the case for the northwestern states, but that's fine with me. I see so many people complaining about the cold, the snow, the rain, and so forth. But for me, I love it. I lived in California for 40+ years and we didn't have this kind of weather there. So, while everyone complains about the weather, I'm loving it because it's such a change from what I'm used to. So, whatever your weather is, have a great day!
