For the holiday we had a family dinner at father in-laws and I think I made my best apple pie ever and it was a nice afternoon.
Shoveling snow at 8500 feet is always a great workout. It took me about 90 minutes to shovel the drive and parking area. As usual I'm the only person who shoveled but we like it neat and clean.
The temp skyrocketed to 30 so I got ready for another run. The storm that was hanging out on the mountains roared in but I didn't care. When I was done with my run I was overheated and wet. The storm was really dropping snow but I was working hard and never noticed that it was cold out (13 degrees before windchill).
We refilled the kindling box, load up the wood rack, do some laundry, eat some stew.... A great night even if it's dropping another few inches later tonight. Right now the temp is dropping but I suspect the clouds will be back soon. Going to pop up the Christmas tree in the next week hopefully and get the lights strung up. Meanwhile we stare out of the picture window.
