For the past week or so, we have had a foot of snow or more on Whidbey Island. The roads have been a mess. One day when the sun came out, I skied to the park for a great view of the harbor. It's rare to have enough snow to ski on without scraping through to the grass.
The photo was taken in my front yard on Christmas Eve.

In Japanese tradition, red-crowned cranes symbolize long life, a happy marriage, good fortune and love. These cranes are loyal partners. The elegant dance of the male and female crane strengthens the life-long bond between them.
