View from the porch

Wednesday morning, here at several thousand feet, on the side of a mountain in the middle of nowhere.  But not to worry.  Spring is technically a couple of weeks away yet.  So anything could happen, right?

It snowed about 4 or 5 inches on Tuesday night leaving it quite gorgeous the next morning.  A crystal clear, bright blue sky.  Everything below covered in white.  Really something.  It did warm up and melt a bit.  Such is the spring here.  But every last snowflake is much appreciated and even if it’s in the snow phase for a mere few hours, it will be put to good use!

A mountain chickadee (maybe a black-capped…I’ve not quite decided yet) likes to sit on the icicle lights.   Too cute and this morning I was prepared for him.  Sort of.  It’s not the best shot, but there you go.  I don’t have any initials after my name touting photog credentials.  So much to do, so little time.  That career will have to wait I’m afraid.

I neglected to capture images of the coyote tracks.  Our resident coyote was at the fence there some time in the wee small hours of the morning.  He (I’m assuming, shouldn’t do that I know) and Buck have a sort of contest going on to see who can make the most yellow snow.  Results not in yet as to the winner.  I only wish they wouldn’t have picked the front lawn to wage their battle.

We’re playing hooky again tomorrow.  Just need to see how our ski legs are doing.  I know, I know.  Disneyland last week.  Skiing this week.  Yes, we do school too.  Sometimes.  🙂

So much to do, so little time.  I pick fun.  What say you?
