It’s been pretty boring lately. The weather so-so, the drought continuing, such that the sight of snow on my front steps Friday morning came as a complete shock, like what is this stuff?

Although at times it looked like it could get serious it really never amounted to much.

If it was hard to focus my mind on anything, it was equally difficult to get the camera to focus on anything. No light, no color, blah, blah, blah.

Yet it’s still better to be outside than to be stuck inside, so every day I continued to search for some meaning.

Even if it was through the office windows.

The snow came the next morning and covered up the ice.

Snow also affords more places to stash peanuts.

The white stuff only lasted a day, and melted away.

Stay tuned, my frustration with cabin fever and boredom eventually gave way to a couple chases.
