We are finally into the best part of winter--cold, clear and sunny!
It is crisp out, being only in the mid 20's, but we still have only
had a very light dusting of snow and a full moon the last
couple of nights.
We took the dogs for a walk down to the mailbox--here is what
we see when we are at our mailbox. That is our major road in town,
a 2 lane highway that comes to an end a few miles down the road.
A little closer view--if you click on the picture you may be able
to see the snow blowing off the mountain--pretty cool! We have
had a family of otters hanging out in front here for all of last
week. They are so funny with their heads and feet sticking out
of the water while they lay on their backs.
Here is a bit of snow just on the top of the mountain behind
our neighbor's house. Maybe I have been making too many
cakes, but it really does look like powdered sugar to me!
What a glorious view when walking downtown! You sure
have to be careful walking though, it is very icy.
The end of the day was just as pretty with an amazing sunset
that filled the sky with color.
And this picture is for anyone that I have misled into thinking I
am some kind of master baker that never has anything go wrong
when I am cooking.
And to answer your question, yes, as a matter of fact I am still
chipping all that crud off the bottom of my oven.
