New Morning in Nevada

It's getting a lot colder here — I re-lit the fireplace this morning — and not only did it look like it was about to snow, but I saw that there was snow on the Pah Rah Mountains down to maybe 500 m above the altitude here in Fernley.

As I have said in several other places today, we have a long way to go to repair the damage of the past four years. Counting the silverware in the White House is the least of our worries.

However, the ship is still navigating through an ice field, and it's still winter, and probably will be for a while. Still, it's time to take stock and hope that maybe, just maybe, the Rule of Law (remember that it's not the same thing as "Law & Order") may prevail and that our country may step back from the brink of an authoritarian dictatorship toward which we were heading.
