Thanksgiving 2013

The sun shown thru the clouds when I left.

Later the sky cleared. Yes, it was a fog area and the fog seemed to have settled in the trees. The trees sparkled.

Still later there was sun to the north and snow to the south.

Sunset in Cranbury, NJ.

A feline scarf.



Clouds on the way home.

The gulls are still with us. There were people sledding on the dam too but I didn't stop to take a photo.

Snow on barberry hedge

The heavy wet snow weighs down the barberry hedge.

The house from the crooked driveway.

I tromped a path to the barn for Tim to use to come to the cathouse. One of the doors is not all the way down so she can come and go.

A chilly walk in new boots

I walked .97 mile in the 21° temperature in my new boots which are wonderful. No blisters. Even Symbicort isn't real helpful when it is this cold but I could breathe well enough. Kinda grey day, eh?

The bay has started to freeze.

Looking back toward the upper entrance to the bay. The above photo is of the right side of this closer to home.

The pond is also freezing. The barn is leftmost with my house "below" it. The next building to the right is the newest - the neighbors whose grandparents lived in the next visible building when I moved here.

The tracks were pristine. I only saw one set of rabbit tracks.

The dam is in the background between the two islands.
All are embiggenable.

Weather 11.24.13

Blue skies thru the barberry berries.

Snow clouds to the west.

Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, Grove City, PA

Driving to church was a bit of a challenge this morning. The tires on the Prius are not new. Fortunately the snow was not deep but the roads had not been treated either. At all. And were icy. Slow going but little traffic. I pulled over to let a Cadillac rush by hoping he wouldn't slide off the road in front of me. He didn't and roared on his way.

The people at Epiphany are very welcoming. I like the way they do their bulletin tho the music for the Psalm and the Sanctus were not given or referenced. Probably not a problem for most Episcopalians but other visitors who like to sing may be a little frustrated.

The sun was in and out on the way home. There were bare lanes between the slush and snow so the trip took the usual 50 minutes, not the 1:25 it took to get there. There were obvious snow showers to the west but none over me. There is little new snow here despite the stuff falling when I left.
Visiting churches and friends I rarely, if ever, get to see is fun. (I can't wholeheartedly recommend taking a vacation from one specific church in order to see what others do however.) I'm learning there are other parishes where I am welcome if circumstances place me there. That is comforting.
