Good News-Bad News

It's definitely been a time of good news, bad news. The good news is that our temps have moderated. We're no longer in the deep freeze of double digit negative numbers. In fact, over the weekend we climbed all the way up to the mid 20's-felt almost balmy. The bad news is that the much more moderate temperatures were accompanied by a foot of new snow coming down on Sunday. The good news was it was pretty fluffy so when it finally stopped snowing Sunday evening, the shoveling wasn't too bad even with the flotsam/jetsam deposited by the snow plows. The bad news was that it snowed another 2-4" early Monday morning so the shoveling had to be done all over again. The good news was what it left us with.

Enough of the good/bad scenarios. Peaks Island is absolutely beautiful after a snowstorm. The quietness of the island just makes the beauty of the trees and summer cottages all the more vivid. I dropped Jill off for the 10am boat and made a quick tour of the island with my little camera. I took over thirty pictures in the 4.5 mile circular route. Enough of the words; enjoy the winter scenes of our little island.

Howdy neighbors! Rob, your personal observations are even more important to me now, being in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Jill, I miss you both but am surprised to be loving it here in the prairie where the temp zooms from -6 to+62 today. Wild swings are the norm. Being "fresh blood" back in town, friends have dragged me into several exciting projects; the Symphony in the Flint Hills, Pioneer Bluffs, an historic ranch within walking distance, and a grant to deepen my earlier photo project. Send me your email and I'll not have to put all this on your blog. Love, Elaine
