So I haven't cleaned up since September, and it doesn't look like I'm going to get a chance before the end of this month. That's not cool. But I will, if not in early December, then mid- to late December, after school's out. I wont have any excuses then, except the incredibly short days. I need a combination of fair weather, lack of other obligations, and the will to do it. Sundown around 4:15 doesn't help matters.
A few days ago it suddenly, finally became winter. The Octoberish weather suddenly gave way to cold and snow, the first of the year, and we've now had a few dustings. Clear nights make for gorgeous moon risings -- it was full on Wednesday -- and that uncanny blue light on the snow late at night.
