You must have left it in your other pants--which you left here in Texas, apparently. Please come and collect them immediately, they're kind of bumming us all out. But on the plus side, it does give me an excuse to wear my fancy knee-high boots.

They said flurries, followed by a little sleet, then rain.
They said.

PDX had record lows over the weekend, but starting to warm up now

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Oregon coast in the Port of Garibaldi
... a fishing port and lumber mill since the earliest days of Oregon
when there were no roads through the forests.

We almost missed this sunrise, but opened the window blinds just in time.

Then last evening at dinner, as the sun went beyond the ocean horizon,
the sunset was spectacular, and I went out to the car to get my camera.
I had left it at the motel.

So you'll just have to imagine what that sunset was like.

Your pain, I feel it.

I caught a glimpse of a newspaper headline this morning promising 180mph winds. Seems unlikely, at least in this country. It was on the morning review of the papers, so I didn't get to see it properly.

As long as it doesn't stop me getting to the panto I don't really care #selfish.

Snow in Charleston today! Lots of fun. Honestly, I was impressed by the local drivers. They can't encounter snow very often, but they were appropriately cautious given that no one has snow tires.

It's been really mild just lately. When the wind blows it can be a bit chilly, but the resting temperature has been pretty high for the time of year.

Frosty fog this morning. Lovely.
Almost composed an almost-poem to the rhythm of my footfall. I doubt I walk in iambic pentameter.
But December pre-dawn gave me some great images.

Made the rookie mistake of not cleaning off the car yesterday when it was all soft slushy snow. This morning, the guy on the radio said it took him 20 minutes to get into his car and get the ice off it, so I thought I'd help my wife out by starting it up and letting it defrost. Took a few moments to get in. I was afraid I would break a handle tugging on it, and finally found a back door that would open a crack at the bottom so I could get my finger tips in there to pull the whole door open. Then by slamming it repeatedly, the increased cabin air pressure loosened the driver's door so I could get that one open.

Letting the car run for 15 minutes loosened the ice off the windshield. I let her clear that loosened ice, because I was off to the Metro on foot.

Next time I'll remember to clear off the car before it refreezes. No excuse, really.
