An annual weathergram is a lone goose press tradition.

As the year drew to a close, we were still casting about for a text. Then an unexpected freezing rain ice storm arrived on Dec 14, the ice persisting over five days.

After ice storm—Clear sky. Bare trees dazzling—Dreamlike

While the freeze was challenging in many ways, we found the landscape incredibly beautiful with sunlight dancing on the trees.

The weathergram is now on the press and due to be completed Fri, 6 January.

If you would like one of the 2016 weathergrams, please send a stamped, self-addressed, standard #10 business envelope (4.125 x 9.5 in) to us here at the press (lone goose press, 2580 Augusta Street, Eugene, OR 97403). We wish you peace and beauty in the coming year.
