Winter – it ain’t over ‘til … (Photo of the week, week 3)

Ghostly Pavillion

Oh, man, this week was a roller-coaster, weather-wise.

On Wednesday, it started getting “nice” (for this time of year, that means above-freezing).  When I took my morning walk, there was some frost on the leaves, but the ice was melting.

On Thursday, it was a positively balmy 48 degrees or something. In the morning, though, it was quite foggy and everything was ghost-like:

Yesterday, though, it was cold again.

And this is what it looks like today.

I’m also experimenting – or trying to experiment – with the blog format. I’m not too happy with iWeb lately. I probably need to upgrade to iLife ’11. Or maybe I need to ditch iWeb for a free, open-source blogging software. It’s just getting absurdly difficult to format these photos in a blog post, which is kind of ridiculous because I’m not doing anything that unusual.  I think the fact that my posts are so photo-heavy is making iWeb unhappy or something.

I also don’t like that when I post a post to Facebook, it doesn’t show the photo. Also, for some reason, I am typing much faster than the words are showing up on the screen, and that is driving me NUTS.  Am thinking WordPress might be the way to go … and since I’m primarily using Gmail now, I may just cut off Apple from the yearly payments I make for the me.com stuff … but what a pain to import all this again to another new blog.
