Monday. February 20, 2006

Even after three days of subfreezing temperatures, the daffodils out front of the studio are holding up well.

Jo and I were able to take our normal loop up to our pasture, then down and around through the woods on our afternoon walk. Near the trail down the back side of the mountain, we discovered a tree that had been struck by lightning, no doubt in the thunderstorm that preceded this cold snap.

Even with the temperature above freezing and much melting beginning, clusters of icicles still clung to the bluffs where water had seeped out of the rocks.
