High Water Marks

Monoliths show where high tide rises to here, down-hill from the previous post's railroad tracks at the water's edge.


Tonight is the spring-tide (highest cycle) of the Full "Hunter's Moon." It's the coldest weather of the season thus far, n we had an inch of white frozen crystals.

we didn't get any white stuff here yet. maybe you'll end up with more than us again... i htink that happened last winter.. didn't you guys get slammed with snow last year?

Well, at least you will probably have a white Christmas... although I don't envy you having to drive through it.

We will probably get a dusting sometime in February (our coldest month usually), and still the daffodils push forward out of the fround. I just planted my winter pansies and they seem to love the cold weather. Go figure.

We are in for a cold snap in the next few days, as the system is headed this way. Lucky for me, my bed has two quilts on it... so I stay nice and toasty all night long. Then I'm up at 4:30 AM, and have to leave the santuary of warmth to face the cold house. Nope.... I don't miss the snow.... except on Christmas Day.

Hope you are staying warm.... and package to be mailed out tonight headed your way.

Note: I couldn't get online after work yesterday cause my ISP was inexplicably off-line, sorry for the response delay!

MB,Hmmm... I seem to remember alot of shoveling... I'm still trying to figure out if this is an El Nino or La Nina year. Your turn will come, better tune-up the snow-blower!

Ellen, driving on slick roads is always nerve-racking. Especially having done involuntary 360's n 180's in the past- Scraping ice off truck-windows every day is inconvenient too!
Before the ice yesterday a Brown-eyed -Susan was on the deck- I bet it isin't now! My small Christmas cactus in the window is beginning to bloom bright pink, tho-
It's been getting pretty cold down that way the past few years. At least you see some flakes, n don't have to shovel!
I'll keep checking for the goodies mmm...

we ended up with somoe snow after i left my last comment. i spoke too soon. not enough to shovel, but apparantly enough to cause 6 accidents in 1 hour b/c of people with 4WD thinking they can still go fast in the snow.

jay already checked out the snowblower and says it's working.. watch it'lll shit the bed when we'll actually need it or something. lol.

That's a cool shot. So far, not much in the way of weather here yet... maybe this weekend.

MB, I thought the radar showed some there... That's one accident every 10 minutes, pretty bad for a first snow-fall in mountain country- ya think they'd know better! I was wondering if you had to work in it.

Mike, Thanks! I like knowing where I was standing for that pic is underwater about every twelve hours.
Hope your weather doesn't dive as far as ours is going...
