Taking a break from end of term grading.
Classic Burley Kake in my 2016--waiting for the storm to hit.

No snow in the yard on Dec 15 at 7,000'!
It was 45 deg. when I took this picture a few minutes ago and just starting to rain.

The mountains are now forecast to get 2-3 feet of snow over the next two days, but mostly rain down here.

I could live there if it stayed 45 as the low.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,

As he staggered down the stairs.

Yeah, the low Saturday morning is supposed to be around zero.
It always gets cold right after a big storm.

We'll likely see a few mornings around -20 before the winter is over.
But it's a dry cold . . .

That's the deal, right there. Here on the coast, 40 degrees or so and an East wind will chill to the bone.

More '08 Christmas Cheer from Michigander in my '16 POY.

It continues to develop more character...

I haven't had a pipe finish do that before... though I've picked up estates that already suffered. I'll wait till it settles in then buff it up. "The scars are where the light shines through."

Unfortunately I've had a couple Petersons do this over the past year.

Happened to me on the very first pipe I bought which was a Dr. Grabow. Never happened again to any pipe after I developed my special breaking-in process.
