The sunset over Tantra Lake tonight was quite different from Monday’s. Snow was the difference.
Yesterday we had the first snow storm of the season. It dropped more than seven inches on us here in Boulder. The cloud cover was too heavy yesterday for any sunset here. The dense clouds continued today — until lifting just enough for this spectacular sunset.
The temperature dropped down to 8 degrees this morning, but warmed up into the 40s this evening.
About 90 percent of the lake is frozen over. The Canada geese congregate around the water kept open by the aerator.
Following my operation, my doctor doesn’t want me to hike for the next couple of weeks. But he encouraged me to walk. I am walking again, including the 100 steps from my apartment to the shore of the lake.
