Thank you very much Kathy, for your nmice comment.
Hope you can manage to stay warm. Terrible cold you are having in your area. Been fairly warm & sunny most of the time here where it normally is cold during this time of year. Has got down to about 5 Below, but only a couple times or so, and then warms up fairly well to upper 30s & low 40's.

Awesome! We never get to see them up here either---the only place I've ever seen them was in central New Mexico. What a treat for you! Sure glad you happened to glance outside at the right time---it was well worth it! Congrats! :-)

Thank you very much Steve. Well I was not hardly prepared, tho all I had to do is grab camera and go outside. Just happened to look out the window in that direction, & there it was just waiting for me to look.
