  2. I love winter! I was so happy to be able to experience some brumal storms over the holidays. Yay snow.

    1. I do too, Sara. Unfortunately we have only had a few slight flurries of snow...nothing that sticks. If this keeps up I may have to go up Mt. Hood to see some snow - it's only 45 minutes away. Take care ~

  3. Ha! Never heard of this one. It sounds like "thermal" to me, so oddly--it sounds warm. Just because it starts with B makes it sound warmer, too. Or maybe I'm just weird!

    1. I didn't think of the connection to thermal, Carol. Good point. (And, oh, you're not weird! ^_^)
