Winter finally arrives ...




Snow started falling here in Hatchville this morning at about dawn. It's now after 2 p.m., there is a six-inch blanket on the ground and there are no signs of the snow stopping. So winter came to us, after all.
Dee had no massage clients today, so she's here doing bookkeeping and drinking tea. I am working in the studio, occasionally looking out at the snow, glazing pot by pot for next week's firing. Not a bad day.

Days like this make me appreciate having a warm place to work.

Wow, it's so pretty when it's somewhere else, it's a gloomy day here but at least it's warm!

No sign of winter proper here at all. Couple of frosts and a day of light snow. That's all, otherwise windy windy windy and wet wet wet and rather mild. Odd. Shelter Island has lots of snow I hear too.

In Barcelona almost never snows, for us is something exceptional, but I enjoy it when it snows, is as a gift.

Love your pottery in the snow. We got 4-5 inches in southern RI. I didn't even bother to go out for the papers yesterday. Starting to melt today.
