Beautiful winter days

This has been a very busy week, with a lot of nice things going on. Tomorrow I will have photos of the day our STASH group spent visiting the Pittock Mansion and going to lunch today. It was our holiday celebration and really fun. Tonight I am too tired to download the pictures and futz with them.

It is still so, so cold here, but oh what beautiful days we are having. The sky is blue, the sun is shining and the mountains (Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood) are "out" in all their winter spendor. We are enjoying them while we can. Freezing rain is predicted in the next day or so. The sun goes down so early. We are really closing in on the shortest day of the year. This was the sky tonight at 5 pm as I was driving home.

It was so beautiful with the last orange glow of the setting sun along the horizon, shading into that steely blue.

  1. Beautiful! We have the COLD, the clear sunny days, and the beautiful evening skies as well, and we have this really cool thing happening in the mornings. It's called "sea smoke" which is a wispy eerie fog coming off the water. Go here to see:
    If it weren't so darned cold!!!!
