Snow on the Mountain!
I took this photo of Roundtop this morning as I left for work. The mountain reopened for skiing last evening, and the parking lot was nearly as full as it would have been for a weekend day. Lots of people came out to ski last evening on some good snow.
It is starting to be lighter now when I leave for work in the mornings, which I always look forward to. I love colder weather but I don't enjoy spending all the daylight hours of a day at work and then only being at home during the dark (except for weekends). I start to feel a bit like a vampire until the light returns.
Last evening I took both Dog and Baby out to play in the snow. No, I don't have photos of that. I'm not coordinated enough to handle two large dogs and a camera at the same time. Perhaps I'll do some dog-snow photos this weekend, one dog at a time. Dog was not completely impressed with the patch of packed snow that I let him play in. He's a real powder hound, and the snow along the edge of the road was pretty well packed. Baby Dog just loves to slip and slide around. She runs in a circle until her feet slip out from under her, and she slides a good 10 feet before getting her feet back under her. She is easily amused.
I also took the second photo this morning--a little bit of alpenglow on the top of the mountains across the valley. The sun was only out momentarily before slipping behind cloud cover again, but it made for a nice start to the day.
And now, I didn't get to see Comet McNaughton last night--too many clouds.
