The good part about winter...

Even Mt. St. Helens, looming in the distance, is cloud-free!

Beautiful, but cold...

An exquisitely beautiful winter morning with the sun shining on the frozen wetlands...

We may see some snow once or twice each year, but rarely this much.   Roads are a mess.  This is the view from the back door just after the sun came up this morning.  Very cold.

No big deal--- what's a little snow?

Well, actually it is a big deal.  We're snowed in this morning.  We don't get much snow here, so nobody deals with it very well.  Good day to sit inside and listen to Debussy, Ravel, Poulenc, and Satie. Maybe some Beethoven...

Happy New Year!

Perhaps we can all try again to believe in each other.

You're right! You can walk on it!

While the ducks in the foreground are dabbling for food where they can, Henry and Matilda are standing on the ice.

The duck wonders why...?

... he can stand on the water!

What's the matter Henry? Cold feet?

Henry and Matilda, skirting the ice on the lake...

In perfect stillness...

... except for the occasional  quack, honk, or caw, and the crunch of our footsteps.

Wherever you are,,,

I hope that in your heart you are home for Christmas.  Merry Christmas!

And then the rain...

...comes to wash away the snow

Just above the water...

More sun and less snow... The Great Blue Heron flies just above the water, still searching.

The Great Blue Heron...

... still out looking for dinner.
