What's this "Winter" we keep hearing about?

We were due to fly to Austin today for STAPLE! this weekend but got the call yesterday from American that our morning flight had been cancelled. Were able to rebook a later one; in retrospect, it should've occurred if the first flight of the day was cancelled, the second one didn't have much of a chance either, and we should've seen that call this morning coming. We just became more travel victims of the storm, and when they couldn't find a flight that gave us enough time there, we just called the whole thing off.

After the couple hours that was, got burritos and went up to the saddleback on Sun Mountain.


A Little More Snow

After days of promised snow, woke up to about 6" on the ground.

At one point, looked up from shoveling the front to see Cheyenne standing at the gate (not sure how long she was there), anxiously awaiting a walk; she got her coat and off we went.


By Request

Facetiming with Raphael, he noted that he's managing to keep his renovation blog updated, and this one continues to sit on the enchilada picture.

I tried to convince him that nothing interesting's been happening — almost immediately proven false, returning from this evening's dogwalk. The local hawk (almost sure it's a Cooper's) having his dinner in a neighbor's tree:


T plus 51 hours, 48 minutes

Lo, there shall come an enchilada-ing.
