The New Hath Been Rung In
Here's wishing you a Happy New Year. Although this photo was from Christmas Eve, I wore the same outfit last night although my glass was never that full. Sadly.
Last year, the snow was piled almost waist high, but we don't have any this year. We did, but it's gone with the Christmas week thaw. However, it shall return as soon as tomorrow and may remain for several months. So, although we didn't have a White Christmas, the weather break may make winter seem a little shorter this year.
We ran into a bit of a problem this week when we noticed that we had lost some shingles and were down to bare wood in one spot. It likely occurred during the severe winds of Christmas Eve, and we just noticed it on Tuesday. With snow coming soon and the New Year holiday on the horizon, we were were somewhat distraught, especially when our roofer seemed not to be answering calls. However, he finally came through just before darkness fell on New Years Eve. So, I guess that meant that the new year actually began well with hatches well battened.
I downloaded a calendar template from http://www.redphotographic.com/lr-calendar-templates/ for Lightroom. It may work for you, but it was just a little off for me, so a rejigged it in Photoshop and came up with this ↓ for January. Since it involved quite a bit of fiddling and faddling, I have only done the month of January and may or may not do the rest on a monthly basis. The photo is a blend of two photos from around this time last year. You can see how much snow we had.
Happy New Year!
