The winter suns burns like white fire on the snow.

  1. It's been thirteen below in Chicago-land for two days now. I love it! Even the burn! As long as everyone stays safe. I've left you a small token of my appreciation on my blog. Something to warm you up. ;)

  3. This reminds me of the day I took my kids snowshoeing in Mount Rainier National Park. It never occurred to me that we should apply sunscreen. The three of us were a sight to see. Poor Matthew's ears were blistered. Be sure to wear sunscreen!

  4. Pristine snow! How beautiful: Here in the southern hemisphere (30°E, 30-something° S), it's summer and temperatures are in the mid-30's now and again. In winter, snow below 6000ft is a BIG EVENT, everyone and their kids go out to play in it!
    Nice blog from your farm, thanks. Ciao.

  5. Patrice, that's amazing. It just doesn't happen here in the east. I asked my son if he ever got sunburned and both he and Tom said, no. If I understand it right, we don't have the bright sun to make that happen, plus it's too cold.

    Ian, thanks for coming by, and for your nice words. I just went over to your blog. Interesting, informative, wonderful, fascinating! I'll be spending more time there.

  6. Our lowest temp was Friday night at 7 degrees. The apartment was cold and drafty - am taking Mrs. Bale's advice and not whining and just keeping warm.

    The new banner is wonderful and captured the darker shading on the deer right now.

  7. Linda, thank you! Tom took it from the laundry room window. The deer was still and quite close. I love the face. We're at a balmy 18º F. right now, with snow coming down.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
