Hello, December!

 
This is what I awoke to this morning in Grand Rapids.

snow covered trees and street

Totally beautiful, but it had a significant effect on people's activities. The friend I stayed with lives on a hill and here's his view. Not shabby, eh?

I loved the while against the white.

And here's my host, Doug Boulee. He's a hiking friend and we mostly talked... wait for it... hiking.

The event was seriously damaged by the weather. About a third of the vendors didn't show up, and there were hardly any shoppers. I'm pretty sure I broke even, so I can't complain. But, darn, I sure would have liked to do better. Everyone would have.

See Still Tough Enough

It is pretty but I'm not ready to be seeing that here.
Too bad the event didn't do better. But at least you did break even.
