Nippy and Sunny

This post's title sounds like a comedy duo I might have seen on the Ed Sullivan Show when I was a kid, but really, it's about the weather. Warmer than usual here like much of the country, we have our cold mornings, around 15-20 degrees F or so, and if the sun stays out, temps rise into the 40's or 50's.

For you folks born to cold weather, 40 or 50 probably sounds incredibly balmy, and we, too, are beginning to appreciate how "warm" it is. Hell, that's sweater weather!

Last night it snowed Dippin' Dots and when I forced gently carried Miss Bonnie outside so she would have her morning cat excursion, the round pellets on our wooden deck crunched.

Here's what it looks like from the deck, just before the sun peeks over the rim rock.

 Looks frigid, doesn't it? And it is, around 16 F this morning.

This is looking toward the Buddha tree circle. Buddha, way at the top of the path, doesn't seem worried about the cold.

Have you been watching Lillyhammer on Netflix? I just saw the first episode and watching it made me realize cold is relative. Norway is freaking cold. If you are from Norway, let me know if I'm right about this one.

I know two buddies who aren't inconvenienced by the weather, as long as they are inside. Let's name them Nippy and Sunny.

That quilt is a shredded mess. I should make a new one. Yeah. Put it on the list.
