Breaking through the fog

 I know it's no comparison to the heaps of snow
or bone-chilling temperatures many of our 
friends are dealing with right now, 
but winter in the valley
is colder & grayer than I'd anticipated.

For a place that gets above 110 in the summer, 
I admit that I didn't expect to see the 30s in the winter.
Besides the temps, though, there is often a heavy 
blanket of fog/smog, 
and honestly, 
it can be really depressing.

So we try to take advantage of our sunny days.

while Z does a bit of old-fashioned writing.
