Can't Believe It's December!



I don't think it has quite sunk in yet that November has crept by silently and Christmas is just 25 days away. I'm focusing on end of month reporting and wrapping up projects before I head to Seattle for a week and time seems to racing out of control. After work (and after a crab leg supper) I went to the wood shop and cut the pieces I needed to make an indexing jig for my Christmas card project and spent some time on-line shopping. The good news is that I took an extra day down south and my sister and family can meet me halfway at Kenniwick for some family time while I'm outside!

I took the picture above a couple days ago when we were walking Chico up in the valley. There is this small waterfall there and the long exposure needed with the fading light gave the water the fuzzy look. Due to the massive amounts of rain the last storm dumped and the high temps almost all of the snow is gone, all the way to the tops of the mountains. We're starting from scratch again, hope we have some for a white Christmas . . . .

How pretty! It would be a sad day if Alaska of all places doesn't end up having a white Christmas.

That's a beauty of a pic, Steve. We had a snow storm all day long yesterday here in Dubuque, Iowa. I dont know if it's going to melt away or not yet...

That's definately a beauty of a pic there papa bear. We just got a nice little snow storm around these parts so it finally feels like winter. Love you

We're still snowless with warm temps but like anything else out here, that can change pretty quickly. Not sure if it will get cold enough out here to get that frozen look Sis, it's a lot different out here than back in Anchorage or Soldotna. 25 degrees is about as cold as it gets - love ya

That is a cool shot the waterfall. Was that the little one we passed on the way to the lake?
