The horse-head profile of the Quadriped-Inuk of The Front Yard against the billowy blanket-rolls of the oncoming storm … somewhat benign (the storm, that is) at this point.
Wish I had either the camera or (more probably) the patience, eye, and ability to better capture THAT SPIRAL. I drove to work right after this, and perhaps 20 minutes later saw the spiral transform and collapse. Weird atmospheric goings-on …
“B slides toward the mesa” — we’re up Little Park, way up towards the top, lookin’ towards “The Mesa.” The first snowstorm, yeah — somewhat slight, of the season had just happened. Not much snow, but enough accompanying cold air to ensure the continuance of winter at this point. (A week later — NOT PIXURED — we did have much more snow and much more cold.) Temps are predicted to be neg-15 (C) tonight — a couple daze short of the solstice. Daze will begin to creep towards being longer, soon.
RockSea watches B approach.
“Little ice-y pool.”
Some yucca in a snowy bed.
We hike to the edge of a ridge, peer to the south (I hiked to the next ridge the following week. Continually explore!)
“The Mesa” is big — view to the southeast, the Flowing Park/Indian Point part.
Hiking back home, Betty being the alpha wolf of this pack.
… alpha wolf, sans pack …
Betty decided we should go see some festive lights of the season. Okay, if I had the camera, a stand, the eye, the patience, more artistic ability … oh heck. This is what I got, and won’t bore you (nor me) with too many of these …
These people lit up the entire property, roadside trees, orchard trees, a few acres of transformation.
Wheeeee ! (Fortunately, as Betty was tour-guide and driver, I brought a couple beers to stay sedated AND hydrated).
