Hi George,
I'm out here, but at work.  It's wierd foggy today and I can hardly see the
mountain 1/2 mile away.  I could have gotten some great black and white
photos of mountain, fog and sun at lunch time, of course I didn't have the
camera with me.  It's cold here but it really hasn't frosted hard at all.
I did have a little ice on the bird bath this morning.  On a gardening note
I think I will bring in some of my chrysanthemums tonight and check the
raspberry bushes for a last picking.  Gotta get back to work.
