Winter Sun

wintersun

It was cold today, and when the sun slipped behind the ridge just before 3:30 this afternoon it got colder. Cold enough to penetrate two pairs of gloves and cause me to hop up and down on the dry squeaky snow. It was pleasant enough at midday, with brightness and a little warmth (although still well below freezing). But when the sun headed for the west, the air grew frigid. Definitely time to get back into the truck, blast the heater, and head for town.

Fifteen days until the winter solstice.

  1. It’s 20 degrees here at nite (woodinville) and I hate to say it but I feel it penetrating more at my age (80). Picture looks like your namesake – Davis Mtn showing North side? Love your narratives, Darrell
