Avalanche!

Fact 1: We've had lots of snow over the last several weeks.
Fact 2: It's been consistently very cold until yesterday, and today is well above zero in brilliant sunshine.
Fact 3: The roof of our house is a metal shingle system that looks black but is actually called Charcoal.
Fact 4: Then this happens.


This is a small roof avalanche, and I was fortunate enough to catch it. Sometimes the entire roof clears at once and it sounds like a train going by, complete with noise and vibration. The first time it happened the cats just about wet themselves, wondering what was going on. 

There is one spot where it can fall onto our front patio, which is not the best thing. It turns to cement as soon as it lands, and gets worse if left. Good thing we don't get a lot of visitors.

The sunrise was amazing today, with all sorts of reds and purples and dark blue backgrounds. These photos are not particularly dressed up to push the colours; this is really the way it looked.




We've been happily binging on Fringe, generally watching 3 episodes an evening. I think we've got a couple left in Season 1, and I completely expect it to end on a big cliffhanger. We happened to see seasons 2 and 3 in a used books store and picked them up. No waiting to see what happens!

The Adobe Portfolio thing is still in progress. When complete I'll put a link here.
