      • The colors were rather amazing. They look even more amazing to me when I look outside my house today at the gray sky with snow flakes flying. *sigh*


        • East coast? Like here in New Hampshire? Bleh indeed! It only got up to 29 degrees today. Winter’s coming and coming fast. I’m not ready for it. Oh well. The kids are looking forward to outdoor wintertime fun.

          Not me. No thank you.

        • We rarely get snow where I live. However, we did experience a heavy snowstorm last year that was rather overwhelming. Knocked out electricity (of course) and did a LOT of damage to trees and some homes. A bunch of roads outside of town were blocked by fallen trees. It took several weeks for some people to get power back and for crews to clean everything up. I suppose none of this is unusual where you live, but for us? It’s one of those things we talk about for years after. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Try to stay warm!


        • Yeah, we lose power all the time here, mostly in winter. We do get some strong wind storms other times of the year but usually winters are the worst.

          Dealing with nor’easters is all part of living in the “nor’east”. We keep pretty warm with the woodstove. Got plenty of wood stacked and ready to burn. Should survive another year. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Tomorrow, Ben. We can hardly wait, right? It’s been getting here earlier and harder every year for quite some time. it’s not even thanksgiving and Im already looking foward to spring….

          Nan, I loved that photo. And that tiny light at the bottom, looks like someone’s kitchen light is on, there.

        • HA! I never really noticed that little light! Too busy looking at sunset colors. But you’re right! No doubt a kitchen light. ๐Ÿ˜„

          Glad you enjoyed the photo. I’m real bad at taking pictures … I oh and ah and never think to pull out my phone camera. *sigh*


  1. At present (here in the East!) itโ€™s snowing wet, large snowflakes. I love it!!! Weโ€™re heading to our daughterโ€™s for supper and our grandchildren will be very excited. . .hubby just got the โ€˜47 Mercury under cover (for the winter) this p.m. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I like snow … mostly watching it from inside a nice warm house. ๐Ÿ™‚

      As I told Ben, it’s not something we see very often. Most of the time it’s a fun novelty. Not sure I’d want to live where it’s a regular occurrence. But I guess you get used to it … like everything else.

    • Snow is pretty.

      However, it is also wet, cold and heavy. It’s not nearly as fun as it was when I was a kid. I’m sure I’ll still be out laughing in it though, when my kids drag me out to play.

    • Coming from the photographer extraordinaire … I appreciate the words of praise. โค

      It was just a passing shot with my iphone camera as we were entering a local restaurant for dinner. Not exceptional quality, but worth sharing I thought.

  2. At first glance Nan, I thought “nice sunset and vivid colors.” But without reading any comments I did a double-take and tried to decipher whether or not you might intentionally be catching over the horizon wildfire(s) smoke, I asked myself. Very hazy distant background, etc. When I read all comments, I was relieved that there wasn’t wildfire smoke blurring everything. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Nope, no smoke … thank goodness! Just haze.

      While wildfires are a possibility in this area, they tend to flare up east of us. More in the Cascade Range. But we never consider ourselves to be immune. We do have foothills all around us that are covered with trees so there’s always the possibility. One good thing is a river is about two streets north of us.

      • Good! I hope you and the lesser-half ๐Ÿ˜‰ have a sound evacuation plan just in case. As I’m sure you are well aware (like most of us Life Conservationists) wildfires, super hurricanes, longer droughts, shorter winters, longer summers, catastrophic flooding, etc, etc, et al, will NOT trend downward in frequency or severity UNTIL all humanity around the globe make many MAJOR changes energy-wise, consumption-wise, and disposal-wise in our daily lives. ๐Ÿ˜ข


        • Where we live, the ever-impending disaster source will be the overdue earthquake off the west coast along the Cascadia fault. Providing our home doesn’t collapse and crush us, we are well prepared as to food and water and other essentials (my other-half leans towards being a survivalist). We also have our motorhome to live in if necessary.

          But you’re absolutely correct! The threats of disaster are everywhere … but the ones who could work towards either preventing them or lessening their effects … well, you know.

          It’s not nice … but when tRumpsky moves to Florida, I will be closely watching any hurricanes heading the direction of his ‘new’ living quarters.

          Excellent! Those survivalist skills/tools and training/preparation will be utterly critical when major disasters occur, provided that is the ‘wildlife’ and Nature are not wiped out as well, ala massive volcanic eruptions of Mt. Tambora (1815), Krakatoa (1883), or Mt. Pinatubo (1991), which caused historic winters, widespread crop failures, and significant temperature changes (2-4 degrees) over 2-5 year spans! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

          Hey, you guys are welcome to bring your motorhome down here to Dallas! Just the other week (Oct 19) we had an F-3 tornado come thru north Dallas. It was less than 2,500 feet from me and my small home. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nan, do you have ruby-red slippers, a terrier dog, and enjoy spinning around in your motorhome fast about 200-400 feet up in the air? It is free air-travel!!!

        • you guys are welcome to bring your motorhome down here to Dallas — I hope you won’t be TOO offended if we pass on your offer. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Thank Thor the tornado missed you! I have two granddaughters that live in Texarkana and I get quite concerned when I read about twisters that are anywhere near Eastern Texas!
