|BLAST FURNACE SUNRISE|
Yesterday was cold but pleasant, even though much clouded by the ongoing reporting of events in Tucson. So for respite from the constant coverage on TV, we took an afternoon ride to the Mt. Ashwabay ski hill, which was fairly busy with kids and families despite the cold. Lucky and I took a walk on the beach but his toes got iced up and we cut it short. Everything is frozen over now as far out between the Islands as one can see, except for a few rivulets of water emanating from the mouth of the river. The sun was quite spectacular as it set over the marsh, perhaps promising a better day.
