Jack Frost paid a visit. At times yesterday the sun almost made an appearance, my eyes started to hurt and water but the sun didn’t make it through the clouds ( since my cataract surgery my eyes are sensitive to bright light).
The frost was beautiful. I had to do some Museum business so we went to town and headed north to Itasca State Park.
The entrance to the park we wanted to use was closed, so we took a different way home. Today we discovered something we didn’t know. A historical site marker for a CCC Camp where Far Guy’s Dad was in 1935. The snow was too deep to explore the area properly and too far from the highway to get good photos. We will return to the newly discovered spot when some snow melts.
Bad Medicine Lake just off that point is an island obliterated by the fog.
Came home to stalk some snooty Chickadees.
I also found some time to play with manual settings on my camera. So far it has been a frustrating experience…I must be a slow learner. One day I took no photos at all I was so disgusted. I am sticking to it one miserable shot at a time until I either master it or go back to automatic settings.
It was 27 F or –2 C yesterday. Wonderful warm weather that we all appreciate after that cold spell.
A little good news, the High Efficiency LP Furnace is apparently quite efficient. We called for a LP Fill and the delivery guy said that many people have filled twice and three times to our once. We used 231 gallons in 106 days…not too bad for as cold as it has been. I have the thermostat programed perhaps that helps too. We still miss the outside wood heat, but we are adjusting.
