Snowfall, sunset, longer days, January, cold lungs

We had a great snowfall overnight! Big fluffy flakes that piled up fast!

I headed back to work this morning after a GREAT Christmas break. Instead of lying in bed for an hour after the alarm went off, we sprung up at 6 to deal with the snow and get ready for work.

It is really nice to drive home without headlights! The daylight is noticeably longer in January. Here’s a pic of the sunset I took with my iPhone as I got out of the car.

And here it is from down by the road. I wasn’t sure how slippery the driveway would be so I didn’t want to stop for the mail and compost bin in the car.  The lake is frozen from our place north. This photo shows the edge of the ice.

 

Then walked back down for the compost bin and mail
-12 C is cold on my lungs while walking up that mountain of a driveway!

  1. That sunset was so beautiful! You have an amazing view of the lake from your place, totally making me jealous!

  2. We usually don’t get much of a sunset because the sides of the valley are so much higher than the horizon. It must have been spectacular for people on flat ground!
