Snowy Day

We have over two feet of snow in the yard, with temperatures in the very low double figures--10-teen, 11-teen. Under the moon and scattershot clouds, the dogs went leaping through the drifts this morning, like dolphins in a frothy sea.

Pardon me. I have gone Homeric.

It could be that they were only three dogs in the snow, looking for a place to pee.

Wait--that rhymes with "sea."

Hmm.

I will have more to report later. I am cold here, but alive.

Just back from our little place on the Pigeon River. Cold there as well, and no eagles in sight. (Yours looks a little pissed, maybe he's cold?) did some writing--non-Homeric--and snowshoeing, reading, fire sitting...
At any rate, am much impressed with your ability to get a shot of the eagle before he took off.

Lynn:

The photograph was "borrowed" from Google images.
The eagle was quite real, though!

Are you talking about the Pigeon River that flows through Crawford and Cheboygan Counties "Up North"?

That's my old (summer) home ground.

Yes Greg, we have a place right off Onaway Rd. on a bluff above the river. (I remember you mentioning the family A&W in Indian River.) My dad's family grew up in Afton. We see eagles flying the river in summer, I've wondered if any of them overwinter up there. Keep warm.

Alive is good.

Homeric is also good.

Cold is temporary.

Snow is less temporary.

Be well.

We has a small dusting of snow last weekend. I long for a blizzard...as long as the electricity stays on.
