|Snow on the sage.|
It was not a heavy snow, I cannot say that we had even an inch of accumulation. However, it was a wet snow, with above freezing temperatures most of the day. After dark the temperature dropped rapidly, freezing the dampness into ice.
We ended the year with a sauna with friends, but many fewer friends than anticipated, as more than half the guests (who were to arrive for a late sauna) cancelled due to deteriorating road conditions. So our New Year's Eve was quieter and eariler than usual. Into bed before 2013 struck.
The next day I went outside with a bucket of stuff for the compost heap.
|Barefoot in the snow again.|
No fresh deer tracks were apparent, however, only old tracks partly obscured by the new snow.
This morning, I found cat prints in the snow near the house, most likely our neighbors' cat, which I have seen wandering about.
A fresh snow.
A fresh start.
Happy New Year.
