This picture of rime on a rope was taken before the recent rain event. Tonight we watched some early episodes of "Meet the Gimp" and I had to start playing.

In other news, we had a pleasant few days with my family in California, happy (and surprised) to make it out of the ice storm and now we're back to normal temperatures - but still with ice on the roads. Highlights of the trip: chopping veggies for my sister-in-law who cooked up a storm, walking along the arroyo, and lunch at a golf course with my parents. We also showed mom how to get to Google translate.

Rain, rain, go away!

This is our puddle at the bottom of the driveway. It was rather bigger before Rob went to work with the shovel:

The very end of the stream, where it goes under the snow on the slope. Can you tell those trees are well below me?

We got the studded tires onto the Mazda, but it's still not winter-ready. This is a terrible picture, but can you tell what's missing? I ran it into the curb...

We got the afternoon off work yesterday and I cleared the porch. Now the snow is sliding off the roof onto it. Last night we were at a neighbor's house and every time the snow fell, the dog would start barking. Enemies at the door!
