We woke this morning to a foot of new snow and zero degree temperatures. Just the same, Jasper seems to think he is in heaven. This is his standard look after having tried to dig up snow balls or to play in the output of the snow blower. At the end of an outdoor session, I literally have to scrape the ice out of his fur.

Life is slow

Not a whole lot going on right now. Most of the ski resorts have opened, but the snow is pretty sad, so we haven't gone yet. This Monday night and Tuesday should bring our first big storm of the year.

This is just a pretty sunset as seen from our deck. We don't get the normal gorgeous sunsets because the sun just drops behind the mountains, long before it really sets. We do tend to get a bit of pretty light, but it only lasts about 5-10 minutes.

The framing continues. This view from up on the mountain behind us gives a better view of the shape of the house and the unfortunate gap in the middle, still waiting for trusses.

Go roof, go!

Now that we are back in Park City, I can get some pictures from different angles. This gives you a bit better view of the how the house is shaping up. The odd thing is the middle of the house, which is currently missing walls and a roof. We are waiting on some big decorative trusses that will support that section of roof. Until we get those, the goal is to get as much house under roof as possible, as fast as possible.

So far, it is looking like we hoped.

Here is what happens when the house isn't under roof. This was about 8" of snow. The next day the framers got to spend quite a bit of time shoveling everything out.
