Around 4AM I was awake.
I left the deck light on so I could monitor what was happening when I got up to check the fire every few hours. The wind was light but enough to keep the accumulation on the rail to a minimum. Soul-o hangs out in the cold studio for hours at a time. With the addition of a litter box and a spare woodpile under the worktable, it has become his "outside" in these cold and bad weather stretches . He likes the cold. It works because it is not that cold. Just cold enough.
And So. It seems it is over here. The sun is out. About 21" is what I measured . And this is what I have to show for it. Old cloth might be a measure for season.
