Saturday Hi-Res

With my new 7D mark II :)


Another bright, cold day, 24F.

Jamie leaves King's Landing.

Friday off

Bright and beautiful in the woods today, 18F and the snow is all sparkly. Yesterday I'd had enough of winter, but a little sun (and the fact that it's my day off) puts me in a much more cheerful mood :)

Also taking a break from the book, for some reason I'm just not feeling this one (maybe it's not just the odd accents). I keep getting emails from Roundabout Theater about the revival of On The Twentieth Century and I saw the original London run, so I'm listening to the original Broadway cast... and it holds up very well!

Thursday, more of the same

Cold and gray and 24F.

I have to say, much as I love the winter and the snow, I'm kind of done with this... even a decent dump of fresh snow would be a change ;)

Sam's little band is stranded in Bravos.

18F and falling, but nice enough in the sun, we're in for a cold night below zero again though.

Quick walk before my next round of dental surgery (ugh!) this afternoon.

Sunny and warm, 38F!

We got about 3 1/2" of wet sugar snow last night, and now it's prefect for snowshoeing :)

Snowy Saturday?

You know it's been cold for a while when I check the thermometer before heading out to the woods, and seeing 23F I decide it's warm enough that neither Holly nor I need coats :)

Gray and breezy, and it smells like snow. It's supposed to get up to 40F tomorrow, but we're supposed to get 5-7" of snow before that!

Alaine wakes to another day in the Eyrie.

Frigid Friday!

Cold and bright, up from -1F this morning to 13F now :)

I'm kinda missing my beard to keep my face warm, but the hood and face mask Jackie got me for Christmas does almost as well :)

Tuesday, February 17, 2015


Another pretty, chilly day... 21F and we had about 2 1/2" of snow this morning, enough to make everything fresh and white and sparkly again now the sun's come out :)

Asher addresses the "Queen's" moot.

Monday, February 16, 2015

Man it's cold!

10F and though the wind had died down a bit it still gusts every now and then. Very beautiful here even so in the sunshine.

Sunday, February 15, 2015


The promised blizzard never materialized, we got no more than a dusting of new snow. It is, however, quite windy and wicked cold... 18F and wind gusts to 44mph!

Cersei schemes.

Saturday, February 14, 2015


We've actually warmed up a bit, 28F, but it's supposed to get pretty nasty tonight through tomorrow afternoon... 5-7" of snow, down into the single digits and 50mph winds. I'm guessing Church will be quite quiet.

In anticipation we did the full, long loop with the extension today, in case we can't get out tomorrow.

Cersei sits with her new Small Council.

Friday, February 13, 2015

Frigid Friday!

It certainly is frigid today, 11F with a windchill of -12F (that's about -25C). But it's absolutely beautiful and Holly and I have the place to ourselves :)

It's supposed to get even colder and windier tomorrow...

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Quiet Wednesday

Cold and sunny, 27F, but still and so not feeling as cold.

A tad warmer, 38F, and we had some sunshine today but it's a bit overcast now.

Sunday, February 8, 2015


Cool and gray, 33F. We're supposed to get a mixed bag of wintery weather again tonight.

No woods yesterday as I didn't get back from the confirmation retreat day in time, so full, long loop today :)

Tommen and Margery get hitched.

Friday, February 6, 2015

Frigid Friday

Wicked cold, 16F (that's -9C), but sunny and with only a bit of wind bringing the windchill down to 5F.

Thursday, February 5, 2015


Another lunchtime walk, we'll see if Cablevision turn up this afternoon!

Gray and cold, 27F, with a strong, gusty wind. We got another inch or so of snow this morning, and a lot more to come this weekend if the forecast is to be believed.

Sansa must learn to lie to survive.
