NO WIND, NO RAIN, 30

We are heading into some colder weather but there’s not a cloud in the sky. Here on the island anything below freezing is cold but I know many people elsewhere get really cold, sorry.

This morning’s walk didn’t have enough sunlight to really take good photos. I left the house at 7:15am as the sun was lighting up the sky. When I got home an hour later there still was no sun shining at our house. Still I was able to get a few nice pictures.

This was just a little bit before the sun peaked over the Cascade Mountains onto the Ebey Prairie.

Out on the wharf I just couldn’t resist taking another picture of Mt. Baker. The snow is starting to pile up. Mt. Baker (elevation: 10,775 feet / 3,285 meters) set the record for the most snow on earth in one year during the 1998 – 1999 season. The Mount Baker Ski Area reported 1,140 inches (95 feet) / 2,896 cm (29 meters) of snowfall. The mountain also beat its own record for most snowfall in a month with 304 inches / 772 cm.

Also on the wharf, the kayak’s have been put to bed until next spring.

If you remember, Coupeville had “Scarecrows” scattered all around town in October. Now that winter is coming the town puts up “Snowmen” and “Snow women” on almost every sign post and telephone poll in town. I spotted the first one this year in front of the Penn Cove Gallery.
