I’m thankful for our public servants and those who keep an eye on them. I attended the county board of supervisors public hearing for the 2012 budget in the morning and the public library board meeting in the evening. It is a challenge to match revenue to services, however we can meet this goal if we work together.
It sounds like guns firing at varied distances from our house, but it isn’t good hunting weather out. Heavy, wet, white snow is falling everywhere. I suspect the globs of snow falling from the cottonwood trees onto our poorly insulated roof are making the gunfire noise. I went out to photograph our first snow and was treated to the loudest thunderboom that I’ve ever heard in the snow.
My culture shows because I’m more concerned about my roof caving in because of heavy, wet snow than militant hunters who will apparently hunt in any weather. For the first time in my life, I shoveled a roof (at least part of it). I was well soaked by the time I got back into the house.
While the snowing continued, the sheep went out to eat in the front yard (the mobile electric fence either shorted out or simply tipped over). By the time I got back to photograph the evidence, the snow had already blotted out the muddy hoof prints.
I’m thankful to have a short, fat, old glassblower for a friend and to see him quoted on Science Friday!
I should have picked up my paper before it got soaked.
I seem to have missed this post, but am so glad to have read it now. Thank you for the link to Science Friday, It is on my radio if I have a Friday afternoon free, lately those are few and far between. Now I will be able to look it up online. I’m excited! The glassblowing is fascinating, it takes talent to create those special vessels. They are truly works of art.
