weirdness

Many questions spring to mind. Why is it fake wood? Where do you put it during the Christmas season? Where do you store it the rest of the year? What is it for? Whose idea was it? What do the people in the Chinese factory think when they're filling the plastic molds to make these?

Sunset last night. After the fog, after 100% humidity without rain, after complete darkness with dramatic lightening, the sun set and cast this red-orange glow across the sky. An exciting natural evening. Those spots are rain drops on the camera lens.

Warm, humid air produced this eerie image. At first I thought it was a dust cloud, but it was, in fact, fog. It just floated up the hill. As I watched, it surrounded my deck and moved on to the south. Weird weather.

This paper white is blooming today just right outside my front door. We'll see if it survives tonight's fr-e-e-e-z-z-z-ing temperatures.

Snowy Day

A snowy interruption to the moss posts. The green grass against the snow takes me in and out of seasonal focus. That's the back side of Future Man, the sculpture by Andrew Hadle, a KU art student. Future Man stands watchful over the valley and never complains. Crazy Nature, huh?
