First off, my apologies that this is late.  I had a slew of technical glitches that kept me from posting this on Friday (one of which was that my kids pulled the router power supply out of the wall!) Secondly, I promised wonderful weather pictures last week.  Well, that was nothing but a huge bust […]

This is one of those weeks where this post is more about the narrative than the pictures (if the weather report proves to be true, we’ll be back to things being about the pictures next week!)

I realized that all these conflicts, on a simplistic […]

Sometimes, things don’t go as planned. Over New Year’s, my family headed south to visit my father in Arizona.  We didn’t expect blistering heat–I had visited at this time of year in the past and, each time, had had pleasant and sunny, but cooler, weather.  Before our trip, I checked the weather forecast for the […]
