Sure, it’s 60° and sunny and the spirea in the garden are budding out of confusion, but we’re still pretending it’s winter and going along with the usual end-of-year merriment with family. The City of Newburgh continues to be beautiful against all odds, and even after six years here I still can’t get over my clouds, my mountains, and my river. Happy, happy.

    The clouds in the sky yesterday were absolutely amazing! At one point, the sun came out and the light was practically nuclear against the backdrop of violet and orange clouds! I loved it! Happy Winter to you, Evan, Fritz and Bruno! Pug hugs and kisses from the Biscuit family!

    I can’t get over those clouds either – so beautiful! I’m partial (or at least accustomed to) sunny winter holidays living in California’s San Joaquin Valley. But I wouldn’t mind experiencing a snowy Christmas somewhere one year. :)

    Warm and cozy holiday wishes!

    I miss that river almost everyday. Moving to Pennsylvania from the Hudson Valley has been an adjustment. Love the photo!
