Nice card Al. (And I won't repeat my last years remarks for fear of escalating our private war of retribution).


And, yes, Happy Holidays to all.

Happy Solstice Season!

Happy Solstice Season...the *real* reason for the season

Well, for us northern hemisphere types anyways, because the winter solstice is almost upon us with its promise of longer daylight each day, the renewal of springtime Life and warmth, and thoughts of bringing our boats out of their winter hibernations

It can still snow here into April, and we've had snow on the ground for up to 6 months, but at least the days will be getting longer...

Talk about your short days.

The sun will come up at 10:15 AM and set at 3:41 PM.

Come the 21 the days start getting longer.

I really look forward to that day.

December 21 is when WINTER begins. There is a lot of snow in the mountain and foot hills. Most morning for the last week we have had snow in the morning, and temps close to freezing. January is usualy our coldest month and shortest days

In the PNW we are experiencing extremely high tides. 13.2 ft. Looked out the window Saturday morning and for the first time was looking down at the parking lot. The tide was within 3 ft from the parking lot. All this week and most of next tides are high. Which is great as my wife is still on crutches so makes it easy get up the ramp as the ramp as level.

Merry Christmas!

So what are you all dressed/dolled up for? Love the pretty dresses and the stain glass windows. The Christmas Holiday time as its basically the only time of year to get dressed/guessed up.

Merry Christmas from Dixie from Lou and Don. Here is a song from some boys about 50 miles down the road at Fort Payne, Alabama. You may have heard of them.

Winter started here yesterday. I had to get my snowtires on the car. Today was worse, weather wise. Here that means you can't use the roads, because the snow packs under the tires and ceates ice, causing slowdowns and stoppages. Then it rains and the gutters are plugged with slush, so large lakes form, making any driving into a wet experience.
To top it off, the new Port Mann Bridge was closed most of the day, causing massive traffic jams. When the bridge was designed, nobody thought about ice falling from the overhead cables, so when that started to occur (60 odd claims) the bridge had to be closed.
Time to go back to the land of perpetual summer.
