While there have been snowfalls... nothing has remained on the ground here, due to daytime warm temperatures... and also some heavy warm rainfall. Oh well. Today, daughters and I drove over to Vermont for an afternoon of skiing, where it was MUCH colder, and there was plenty of snow remaining on the ground, at least at those higher elevations.

(perhaps I will scan those, and get those safely stored on-line.. a good project for the upcoming week.) Lately, with our daughters growing and moving on out into the world on their own, I consider how to continue this.

Antoinette (with just 1 year left in her college) visited Victoria last week, and brought down my cameras and related gear. They took a late-night metro ride to near the Capitol, and set this image up... shot a roll... got shut-down, literally just as they finished, by the Capitol Police for setting up a tripod within "distance" of the Capitol... and next-day-mailed the roll of exposed film back to me, which I processed and printed. 150-ish 5x7 prints get mailed out.

Mandatory Lotus-Cortina Content-  you can see my Lotus Cortina in the background of the first "splash" picture.  Other images show our daily driver Volvos...
