The coldest weather in at least a couple of years is heading for Vermont. Temperatures (Farenheit) this weekend are going to range from single digit highs to lows near -20. This is not terribly unusual for Vermont; it happens every now and then and used to happen more often. I've never been in temperatures this cold, though. I really want to try tossing boiling water outside in subzero temperatures, so if it gets cold enough, I'll give that a try. I also need to fill up my gas tank, apparently that makes it easier to start your car when it's cold and I do need to drive on Monday morning.
When I was in Pittsburgh last week I made a few more sketches.
I colored this one using 'GIMP', an open source photostop-type program. It's Panther Hollow Lake, actually drawn from a picture in summer since it is frozen now.
This is the 'cloud factory' - a steam boiler plant used by CMU.

This was actually in Maine but it's an ash tree.
