10. And it's practically spring down there now.....

Sorry about the problems. At least here in Texas the weather has largely been normal for the winter, outside early December, the Christmas chill and a few other outliers(but that isn't uncommon anyhow, outside those two events I mentioned.).....

12. Wow!

The clouds are clearing and I can see the Mountains now. This is my first Winter here so I have only seen the snow on the mountains maybe a couple of times. This is the first time I saw it this far down on them!
