So this summer wasn't the greatest. It was much rainier and cooler than expected. Now Mother Nature has thrown another punch as we've been socked with some pretty frigid temperatures this past week. It makes from some pretty cold mornings at work though once you get moving of course it isn't so bad. I suppose I shouldn't complain as I keep hearing we can expect a colder than normal winter here this year. One a brigher note, we seem to have escaped the worst of the snowfall that's nailed other parts of the West. Still, there are moments that I long look back at these pictures and long for a little more heat...and some fall colour.
