A walk up Asotin Creek

We hadn’t expected a beautiful, clear sunny day, but there it was, and we decided on a walk along Asotin Creek, a nearby and fairly frequent destination.

         The trail was slick with melting snow, but we sustained no casualties.

Winter rain on snow, and Effie

The temperature is 35° and snow yields to falling rain–but snow continues to prevail on the ground.

Effie wants to be patrolling Effieland, but it’s not her way to embrace rain and cold for very long.

Sometimes monitoring her domain through the window is just the thing.

Hail to the Plowman!

Vic had to convert our tractor to its snowplow identity to plow our driveway this morning. It’s hard to tell which–the snow or the plow–Cat Halvor disliked less. In any case, the red tabby is out on an errand.

The Effielander’s snowy morning

Effie pauses to contemplate the wondrous snow that suddenly came to her dominion while she slept comfortably, as always, indoors.
