Snow on Mars

The summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea had a blizzard watch last night and we woke up to snow on the summits this morning. About as Christmas like as you could possibly expect on fauxMars/Hawaii.


Sorry for the poor quality photo; it is hard to get good shots out of our window.

Happy holidays

    1. Thanks Lynn, Merry Christmas! We are just getting started for the day. I’ve got cinnamon roll ready to go in the oven once everyone is up and then we are going to open presents.
