    • Hi, Amy. I like what you’re doing with roots.

      • Hi Paul. I love what you’re doing with your frost.

        • You’re envious, aren’t you?

          Comment by paul davis — December 19, 2013 @ 9:34 am

          • …yes. It’s 70 degrees today! & everything is blah!

          • I feel so bad for you (20 degrees, snow coming down hard on top of ice layer).

          • House bound are you? Cabin fever hitting you yet? I shouldn’t have written such a cocky note…the window are all foggy here & the temp as dropped to coldish…40degrees.

          • 8 inches of new snow over 12 hours, then temp dropped to 3 (or -16 if you’re the kind of lightweight who believes in windchill). But we shoveled, tramped in the woods, went sliding, and then went in to work, even. By statute, lightweights may not reside in Iowa (if you’re light when you move here, we get that fixed by winter).

          • My dear sir, my origins are pure yankee. I am a Vermonter. A wonderful childhood was shoveling, digging, tunneling & sledding on snow. I miss home so much it hurt. Enjoy your snow. We are just a soggy mess for four months. Merry Christmas & Happy & Healthy New Year, Paul. ~amy

          • I’ll take your soggy mess and raise you a minus 10 morning.

            OK, I’m impressed by the Vermonter business. You people are serious.

          • You are a seriously funny man. I laughed out loud before one sip of coffee, thank you.
            I’d gladly pass, into your possession, a soggy mess for 30 degree weather with a chance of snow. It is too difficult to find my glasses for my dog’s morning pee. Thus, as I sink into the mire, I cannot discern the difference between leaves & her past leavings. In snow- having to find my glasses would be not necessary.
            In the mid 1970’s, in Vermont, I wore a snowsuit, it was covered in patches. One of the patches read, ‘don’t eat yellow snow’…
            Happy New Year, Paul. Please keep me laughing & showing me your stunningly cold winter photographs. ~amy

          • I gather you’re not as into snowsuits now.

            Your confusion between “leaves and her past leavings” is nicely literary. You could work up a poem on that theme.

            Happy to be in the mutual entertainment business. May the new year treat you well, my friend.

          • “leaves & her past leavings” would be a great jumping off point for a NYT bestseller book of poetry. I’ll do that, just as soon as I put on a snowsuit.
            May the new year treat you & yours well, Paul. I thank you.

          • Oh! “Leaves & Her Past Leavings” works on so many delicious levels (“delicious,” assuming we’ve left behind your original sense of the phrase).

            Sunshine yellow for the snowsuit, please.

            Yes, happy new year to you.

  2. The photo is amazing…and I am dazzled by the title. Brilliant!

    • Thanks. I’ll take “dazzled” and “brilliant” through the day with me. 🙂

  3. I second the above comment – and here I was thinking you had gone into night photography of the heavens! Silly me 🙂

    • I do like those star track photos, until I get uneasy about knowing that we’re all spinning in circles.
