The dog seemed happy to laze about for an extra half hour this morning, so I wasn’t out in time to see the dawn, but I got this nice view just after sunrise.
Reminder: Your local spring is forecast by your local groundhogs. Ignore celebrity groundhogs!
I’m looking forward to an early spring, despite my dread of the other effects of global warming.
After week after cloudy week, where dawn was just the sky going from black to dark leaden grey to light leaden grey, today we get an actual dawn.
Street lights on the ice glaze left by freezing rain.
An ice storm has made it way too slippery to walk further than absolutely necessary. Plus, I have a package coming that I need to sign for. So, for the dog’s third walk today I kept her within my front and side yards.
Happily, there was this nice patch of lichen right there. #lichensubscribe
If there’s anything better on a cold day than a warm dog and a cup of hot cocoa, I don’t know what it is. #dogsofmastodon
I put Ashley in her new coat, put on my Alaska Pipeline coat, and went out into the bitter, bitter cold. Ashley would have liked to come right back in, but I made her stay outside until she had accomplished a couple of very important tasks. #dogsofmastodon
At the airport it’s currently -9°F, with a wind chill of -34°F (-37°C).
After yesterday’s brightly colored dawn, a dramatic change: Today’s rather somber snow on the sycamore tree.
I took Ashley out just a little earlier than usual, because the dawn sky was so pretty. And good that I did, because now it’s pretty much just grey out there.
