A little bit of sunshine
2 pictures that show the same thing - a spot of sunshine on a far hillside and a little hole of blue. Another name for this phenomena is a 'sucker hole', as in, 'you are a fool if you actually think the weather is clearing up'.
Indeed the weather has taken a dismal turn. We are back to warm temperatures and grey skies. In the morning the kids and I watch the news and we see that the East Coast is getting all the snow. What kills me it that the newscasters complain about it - no appreciation about how lucky the east coast is to have a winter. I wish they could send it our way.
But at least we now have snow on the mountains - in the last 2 weeks Kodiak has received a LOT of snow up high.
One problem with the lack of sunshine is that Stuey and I have not been able to complete his Science Fair project for school - a sundial. We got the sundial built, but have not been able to calibrate it in the sunshine. No sunshine, no shadows, no clock.
