Stan, we will return to DV in the spring to see if the wildflowers are in bloom there.

Great - the spring desert flowers will be something I look forward to.

In the meantime, here is the view from my house - such a stark contrast to your desert sunset shot!

Beautiful sunset Bob. By tomorrow evening my view will look like Stan's. Glad I don't have anywhere to go.

Trev, usually in the desert, if you have a few clouds, you know you are going to have a great sunset.

No, that is a game to watch in the comfort of your home, the Pats sure didn't have much trouble with the Dolphins. My Bengals are in the playoffs, yes I am a glutton for punishment over the years.

Yeah, I think it will be one of those days to just sit inside and enjoy the view out of the windows. Stay warm...
