Paradise ponders...

Paradise ponders...  Right now we are mostly pondering the weather, which has turned snowy with no warning at all.  When we went to bed last night, the forecast was for overcast and no precipitation.  When we got up this morning (at 3 am), it was snowing – and now the forecast calls for snow throughout the morning.  We've accumulated a couple inches already, and the roads are icy.  Current radar image (at 8:30 am) is at right – all that blue stuff is where it's snowing.  I just got back from a trip to our local hardware store, and I pulled one car of the ditch on the way there, and another on the way home – and that's on one 3.5 mile stretch!  People here actually know how to drive in the snow, so when you see cars in the ditch, you know the roads are slippery...

Last night I finished another digit (the minutes digit) on my clock kit.  Once again, it all worked on the first try – and I'm a little disappointed that I don't get to troubleshoot anything.  Now I've started on the tens-of-minutes digit.  It's beginning to look possible that I might finish the kit this weekend – especially if the snowy weather keeps me indoors!

Here's the scene just a few minutes ago from my office window.  Tim's horses don't seem to mind the snow at all – they're out there in the alfalfa field, mowing that alfalfa down into the dirt.

Time for me to go have some breakfast.  I sense an open-faced turkey sandwich, with dressing, in my immediate future!
