It has started to rain, it’s close to 40 outside, about 4 Centigrade. The snow is melting fast and is gone from the trees and branches. By tonight it should be as if it never existed. But we will know… Here are three pics the younger stidkid took about ten o’clock this morning. The first […]
This is what was outside my front door yesterday, such lovely little daffodils. They’re about 4″ tall, they herald the arrival of the bigger ones. You can see the pink hybrid hyacinths are getting ready to bloom in the lower right corner. And last night, we had some visitors, sorry about the quality of this, […]
These photos were taken by the elder stidkid yesterday. Not much snow left then, it’s now raining… and wet is the word of the day.
These pictures were taken today about 4 in the afternoon. Looks like winter is still very much with us. And finally, as inconvenient as the snow is, it still is pretty — look how it highlights the different textures of the maple branches and fir limbs.

Here are some pictures from the last couple weeks, sorry that a couple may be a little blurry.Â These start with the younger stidkid waiting for his class to perform at the band concert on the 9th, then the snow on Sunday and the orchestra concert at a downtown church (both kids performed), and a […]
… “Fall Brings First Dusting Of Snow In Cascades” Well, okay, not really a headline, a byline this afternoon. Still, here it is, the first day of autumn (after a late and short spring and short, intermittent summer), and already we have white stuff in some of the passes. Not a lot, dusting is the […]
