As the Year Begins

January 1, 2018
Looking up the Driveway
The new year has begun in a frigid fashion. 

I did a short flight with my drone, Radio Flyer, yesterday to work on my controls and getting the basics of flying down. 

I snapped a few images and they just speak to the cold. The sunset was just building in the west and the snow was not melting at all due to the cold.

I get a chill just looking at the pictures. The scene is so cold. 

It was so cold yesterday that except for refilling the firewood in the garage from the pile outside and a short drive flight, all I did was watch movies and keep the fire stoked. 

Finnegan had the best idea. Take a nap with his bone in front of the fireplace. 

The cold is going to continue until next week. Except for a brief few hours tomorrow, the forecast does not have the area rising above freezing until Monday next week! Ugh! Is it too late to take an early winter vacation to the south? Although it is 39 degrees in Tampa this morning. Jupiter, however, is showing 64 degrees. A heat wave!

Stay warm.
