I blew off ¼” of dry loose snow with the leaf blower (fearing an expected spell of cold weather might turn it to ice). We did get a week of cold weather, but the white tire tracks evaporated in about a day.
From the kitchen window December 4th. It’s been years since bluebirds have been a common sight at our house, but I’d had a few possible sightings recently, so I ran for the camera when I saw this opportunity. They didn’t hang around for a second shot, unlike our many squirrels . . .
Above photos by Elsp/Erin/Sandy/Tim? Below by Elspeth (1 & 3) and Sandy (2). The hot chocolate itself didn’t inspire much enthusiasm but Rhys hung onto the cup for the rest of the journey.
Ate our sandwiches at the foot of the National Airport runway, with the 14th Street Bridge, Jefferson Memorial, and Washington Monument behind us (but somehow failed to get a plane taking off into the frame).
