Tell me what you will of the benefactions of city civilization, of the sweet security of streets. I know that our bodies were made to thrive only in pure air, and the scenes in which pure air is found. Muir

It's finally beginning to look like winter up here. There was about half an inch of light snow, but the rime ice is nicely coating the trees and temperatures have dropped. The high was 25. The low was 13. It was 14 and clear at observation. It looks like we'll have another clear, cold day today. Highs are expected to be in the upper 20's. I'm hoping the forecast proves correct, as more snow looks to be on the way and temperatures aren't supposed to get above freezing until the 14th. C'MON WINTER!!!!
Only 3 more weeks of winter scenes like this!
