The joys of daylight savings time...

Well one joy anyway...lots of light left after work. No need for a headlamp or the lighted collars on the dogs!

This was about 7pm on Tuesday night, the day after the dogs popped the snowhook and left me in the forest! Reggae may not always turn when I tell him, which is what led to the snowhook popping incident, but he does have a flawless, never miss "on-by". This time of year that's very handy since everyone who hasn't walked their dog all winter is suddenly out on the trail. Loose dogs don't even get a glance from Regs! Skijorers get him to lift his head, but he keeps moving! He's very serious when he's working.

Our first run of spring, taken tonight sometime after 7. The longer days and tons of snow are a great mix! Last year, our last run was March 13, this year we should still be going in late April!!

Snow and sunlight at 7 pm, what a great combination.

Go, runners, go! I'm glad you are enjoying your late-day trips. I sure enjoy your blogs and photos. I hope the snow will ease off just in time for your trip to Havana.

Thinking of you,
Elyse
