Last friday night the 19th of December the temp went to -24F and since we have had several nights as low as -10F. We have also received 24 inches of snow since the 4th of the month. The average for all of December is 16 inches. I have had to plow snow every day for 3-4 hours just to stay ahead of it. Everyone is staying warm and seem to enjoy the winter weather.
The Monks we had staying with us ended up getting to stay an additional five days as the weather closed down the Spokane airport on the day they were to leave.
More winter pics in a few days.

winter and monks are here.

We have started getting the winter weather.....Some snow and temps to -10 degrees.

Two Monks from Wat Metta arrived on the 4th of Dec. They will be returning on thursday the 18th.

The fifth building was semi-completed in time to house one of the Monks.

We have had five guests for the last two weeks and will continue hosting the three yogis after the monks leave.

The building in the pics is the fifth kuti/sauna.

Receipts will be going out in the next week or so for all of you who have been generous enough to contribute to our work here.

Thanks much.
