One year ago, on Sunday, November 29, 2009, Lakewood police Sgt. Mark Renninger and officers Tina Griswold, Ronald Owens, and Greg Richards were gunned down and murdered by Maurice Clemmons at the Parkland Forza Coffee Co. shop. May we never forget. We will never forget.
The pictures here were taken before the dedication this afternoon of the memorial to Lakewood police Sgt. Mark Renninger and officers Tina Griswold, Ronald Owens, and Greg Richards at the Parkland Forza Coffee Co. shop on 11401 S. Steele St.

I thought the leaves looked so amazing encased in the ice. This picture was taken at Fort Steilacoom Park on the path around Waughop Lake on Tuesday. It was very cold that day. It's warming up now, and it's supposed to get up to 41 degrees today.

So maybe this is why the sky had such a wintry look to it yesterday! We got a little snow late last night and it mostly melted. Then a little after noon today it started snowing again and has been snowing steadily since then, but it was warm enough outside that it kept melting. Sometime around 3-4 pm it finally started sticking some places, such as on roofs, but not on the road (yet). This picture was taken at 4:17pm. It's the 76 gas station at the of Bridgeport Way and Custer Road. I took this picture from our car while we were waiting at a light.

We went for a walk tonight at Fort Steilacoom Park, and there was a very cold breeze. We reached the lake as the sun was going down, and the reflection of the late sun on the water was beautiful! Even though it's still autumn, there was a wintry feel to the air and a wintry look to the lake and the surrounding trees and sky. We had a lovely, refreshing walk.

This is "The Little Church on the Prairie." It was called "on the Prairie" because Lakewood was known as "The Prairie" in the beginning. The building used to be a store before it was purchased in 1937, and it was redesigned into this pretty little church. The Little Church on the Prairie became an official church on September 18, 1939. You can read more about it's history here.

A contrail and its reflection on Waughop Lake on Friday (12 Nov. 10).
Contrails (short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are artificial clouds that are the visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust of aircraft engines. As the hot exhaust gases cool in the surrounding air they may precipitate a cloud of microscopic water droplets. If the air is cold enough, this trail will comprise tiny ice crystals.
