more of winter




frozen chimes

A sunny day, but it was cold, cold, cold. These windchimes became encased in ice. My parents had these hung outside their window so that birds won’t fly into the window. They do occasionally and quite often the impact kills them, but the wind chimes help.

let it snow….

…And it did. Nearly all day long. Not sure of the amount, but it was enough. Just the perfect time for our furnace to give out, eh? We were awakened at 2 a.m. by our smoke alarm going off because the furnace motor was burning up. A chilly night was had by all. The cats ended up on top of me like furry little hot water bottles.

We made a recent trip to take our daughter and granddaughter to the airport in Seattle. For some reason, I was not allowed to drive. Just as well. We ran into a snowstorm on the top of Snoqualmie Pass. The first really hard snowfall granddaughter had ever seen. It was quite beautiful.

It was dark enough — even though it was daylight – that the flash was going off automatically, illuminating the passing snowflakes quite nicely.

These hang from the rearview mirror in my car. The metal cross is made from horseshoe nails. A friend got it in Africa. The beads are wooden “worry beads” that my brother brought back from Greece.

fog or smoke?

I thought at first it was smoke. As we got closer, it got thicker and more smoke-like. This highway runs along the Naches river.

Wow! November 2 and the first snowfall of the season. It didn’t stick….slightly too warm. But it’s a sign of things to come in the next months.
