First Ice 2012

First Ice on Upper Pond

It has gotten cold enough that we finally have ice on the pond. Not enough for skating. This is a little late to get first ice. Not that we mind as we’ve been enjoying all the warm weather for doing construction deep into the fall.

Off to the right you can see the harp on the hill from the old piano. It is now out to pasture…

Spring Pipe Delivering

The high spring pipe is delivering a glorious jet of water. I’m hoping that with the new pipe installed the pond will now stay full all the time instead of lowering in August and July as it was with the smaller leaky old pipe.

Outdoors: 43°F/34°F Sunny
Tiny Cottage: 59°F/56°F

    We’re getting some much-needed rain all day today, but there is a call for snow at Roundrock this evening. Whatever it takes to fill that lake of mine!!

    Lov it that you have a piano sound board on the pond. I bet the kids have a lot of fun with that!

    I see your water line real in the background is empty now. It looked like it still had a some water pipe on it in the photo the other day. I love these wide panoramic snapshots of life on sugar mountain.
