The Planet Hoth

Our winter sometimes brings days of clear, cold weather when a high pressure ridge plants itself over the eastern Pacific.  Our house is in constant shade this time of the year because of tall evergreens located behind us to the south.  As a result, hoarfrost develops and accumulates on everything.

Haines Wharf 1-1-13

 I take a walk from my house to Meadowdale Beach Park every New Years Day, depending on the weather.  This year it was a clear, frosty morning, perfect for a walk.  The walk takes me past the old Haines Wharf, slowly succumbing to weather and waves.  Two Bald Eagles are perched on the far right corner of the more modern boathouse.
