I’m heading outside in a little while to meet my daily commitment. I doubt I’ll wander far or for longer than necessary. The sun was out earlier but it’s cloudy now. Light snow is in the forecast for tonight, then a warm-up starting tomorrow afternoon that will bring rain with it. I’m guessing by Monday evening most of our relatively new snow will be gone.
M and I are planning to get up early and go skiing tomorrow. I’ll take the camera along if we do. Perhaps I’ll have something more exciting to blog about after our excursion.
