Anders: "Where's Mom?"
Dad: "She disappeared."

Anders looks intently at Dad.

Anders: "She doesn't have a beard. You have a beard. Mom doesn't have a beard."

Snow! Finally! (and motion-activated cameras)

Despite predictions to the contrary, it's been a pretty light winter in terms of snow accumulation. Here's a "time lapse" video of some driveway clearing work that we did after one of the late winter snowfalls.

The video was created by stitching together a series of still photos taken with a motion-activated trail camera that we recently bought. The trail camera is designed to be mounted to a tree or other fixed object and automatically takes one or more photos or video when it detects motion. To start, we mounted it in the driveway as a trial run before we move it to another more interesting place on our property. The camera just happened to be mounted there when I had to clear the driveway. You'll undoubtedly see more interesting shots taken with it at a later time.
