It's nippy, some would actually call it cold. It was minus 10 this morning, got up to near 20 above, a 30 degree delta.
It was clear all day, the blue sky here is like no other; little pollution, less sodium arc light at night. The blue comes through, sometimes late in the day almost indigo. At night, the stars...........the milky way, the way you remember it as a kid. If you are my age.
As you can see we're in a broad valley, the beginning of the Columbia River, one of a couple. The main one is in British Columbia, this is the headwaters of the East Fork of the Columbia. Silver Bow Creek.
The last few days have been a 'regression to the mean', it went from a minus 38, kinda nippy I can tell you, to a plus 34 yesterday. that's near 80 degrees. Match that.
Might get a bit of snow tonight, normal temps. Wish we were the norm for the nation, in terms of our collective self.
