 We've been having some clear days lately. But the temperature with wind chill has been -33 C. Nevertheless the days have been longer, and the days are bright.

  6. I meant to add something and forgot. A Gibbous Moon is a moon that is greater than half and less than full. A waxing Gibbous moon is between a quarter and full.And a waning Gibbous moon is greater than half but hasn't yet reached the last quarter.Makes sense doesn't it? Gary & Boom.

  14. Incredible cold, I know, Gary. Things have warmed up to 0 (Celsius) here, but can plunge to -30 before spring is here. You're right, though, it's nice to see the days getting longer.
    Lovely photos. Thanks!

  26. Hi LadyFi. It is all of that, but that's what winter is and you just dress for it.

  27. When the weather is clear and sunny, temperature drops during winter... I understand that but -33 C with wind chill is too low to me...
    Moon photo is gorgeous and I love it.
    Please take care and have a wonderful weekend.
