Lately we have strangely without snow and with cold, sometimes very cold ( see frozen bubbles below). It has been good for x country skiing and for snowshoeing but, no question, we will all be glad to see snow and with it some warmer mornings.
Our walk this late this afternoon was brisk one and a beautiful full one. I have been taken of late by winter light. The above is an example of what, to me, seems almost like a kind of stark sonata.
