Happy New LatLong

Greetings from snowy Cleveland! It was shirtsleeves when I arrived on Monday, but snowed all day yesterday and overnight, to the tune of about 8 inches of sloppy white stuff. My brother tells me it's supposed to be 50 F at home tomorrow. Figures.

But I'm more or less moved into the temp digs. Precious iMac arrived via FedEx less than an hour ago, and we're both getting accustomed to typing from a different view. At home the window is at my back, but here I face a southish exposure, tree branches tracing across the white wall of the neighbors' house.

Speaking of neighbors, at least I know that until ambition moves those across the street into "pack it all up" mode, I'll be able to find my way home in the dark. Almost reminds me of something we've all seen on YouTube.

There's a pale blue to this afternoon sky, promise of a walk in the woods tomorrow. We're not far from the Rocky River Reservation, 2,552 acres of Cleveland Metroparks foresight. Can't wait to get to know it at least a little. We drove through it a little in the snow yesterday.... obligatory windshield shot to follow.

Happy new year, Sherrie.

Wow! Them's some lights. I always get torn between smiling at other people's efforts to brighten up the streetscape and pursing my lips (cat's bum style) at the profligate waste of electricity.

I usually end up smiling.
