I had a change in my work schedule this week and I am working today and having tomorrow off. So I am using my lunch break on the computer. First off, a big "Yellowstone Hello" to Duncan and Marion in Carluke, Scotland!!
I was extremely humbled and appreciative when I checked my e-mail this morning. I received quite a few notes about my posting and pictures yesterday. Thank you to everyone with your kind words and interest. I wake up every morning wondering what interesting things I will experience that day. Some days I see incredible things and some days I think I just pass by incredible things without taking notice. I'm learning to appreciate everything and not take for granted what is here. I want to notice everything and share it. For instance, I would love to bottle up some of this frigid air and share it with everyone.
It was -14 this morning. My furnace will run, shut off for about a minute and then turn back on again. It does that all day and all night. When it was -10 I learned a valuable lesson. If I wash my hands before walking out the door to leave I should dry them thoroughly. I didn't that day and my hand stuck to the doorknob. Also, the air is extremely dry in Mammoth and I have a perpetual case of dry skin and I have become a human sparkler from all the static electricity. I decided this is an area that I can give myself a pass on for needing to appreciate. Just because I am getting zapped in Yellowstone doesn't necessarily make it awesome.
