It’s A-Comin’! November 8, 2010

…Winter, that is.

Last night the wind blew and the sleet and freezing rain pelted the house; this morning’s ride over the mountain to work was slow and nerve-wracking, as I’m waiting ’till after my December auto inspection to put my studded snows on.

Still, I’m a big fan of winter.  I’m amazed by it, by the aesthetics of shimmering ice, of the remnants of Autumn entombed in sparkling light, of steely skies swirling over a landscape lit by the long, low rays of a cold sun.

I broke out Elliot to snag this shot on the way home:

I’m always struck by that deep-blue-horizon thing which happens as a storm recedes eastward.

I’ll apologize ahead of time for boring you all to tears with this stuff, but I just can’t get enough of it, and Lord knows I need the practice !  😉

I’m so glad you’ve become such good friends with Elliot.

Yeah, he’s a great little helper, and points things out to me which I used to drive right by! 🙂
