One of the dogs had to go pee in the middle of the night. Good thing. Otherwise I would have missed this.

When I first opened the door for Cooper and saw the aurora, I decided that it was so good that I was going to wake up Martin, so I called out his name, only to remember that he left for a conference two hours earlier. Maybe he saw it from the windows of the airplane.

Smith lake is frozen

The snow that fell three weeks ago melted within about a week... then it got superhot (60F)... then it got cooler (consistently below freezing).... this morning a dusting of snow fell from the sky. Can't go skiing, but we'll have to try skating.


Two and a half weeks ago

Fall colors three weeks ago

This is already three weeks late: some pictures of last little bits of color around.
