January 7, 2007
The county got poured upon today. A warm wind, a lot of rain and the result was a good old-fashioned January thaw. When I first came to Idaho these were called “Chinook” conditions. Now they are supposed to be evidence of Global Warming I guess.

Just enough daylight
This brief January day,
to see each raindrop.

I stayed inside and kept the woodstove ticking along while I baked four loaves of bread in the electric oven. Occasionally I checked the 100 words site, hoping that this odd collection of message-in-a-bottle scribblers would soon have our ocean re-filled.
