I'm always waiting to see a big hand reach out of one of those holes in the clouds  :D.

This was from a couple of weeks ago one evening on the front porch. It was more intense a few minutes earlier but took a minute to find the camera.

One thing Mary and I can take credit for is instilling in Alex and Brooke some appreciation for the beauty of nature.  I figured they’d get bored of me dragging them out to see a sunset or rainbow or sunlight making the ice on a tree look like crystal.  But they’ve picked up the idea. 

This evening they came running in and wanted Grandma to come out and see the sunset.  Then they found I was near so they insisted that I come too and I had to bring my camera. 

Well,  the best of the brilliant sky was about gone by the time I got out there with my camera but I snapped a  couple of pictures and let each girl take a picture.  Then they wanted their picture taken with the sky scene.  I did but this time the flash went off.  I figured it’d just wash out their images and took another with the flash turned off.



Turned out,  the one with the flash came out ok.  I did a little work with the photo editor to get bring their images.

I don't know why mine came out so small.

Bibbyman it looks like we had the same idea about the same time. You were seeing the same thing as me just a few lines of longitude sooner. I caught that real pretty color you said you were late getting but my pixels shrank at some point. It was so striking I thought I would share it. Course mine didn't have the cute grands in it. :)

I tried to enlarge it but they keep shrinking.

Yeah. I been workin hard today and used up what few cells I had left. It was operator error for sure. ::)

Still pretty though. My sky outside already looks like Bibby's in the pic. Time fly's when things are spinning at 1000mph. :)

Last week as the sun was going down and shinning through the trees my 2 year old came and got me and kept saying "come see, come see."  I thought "wow he has a real apprectiation for nature's beauty,"  that was until he starts yelling "call the firefighter trucks Mommy." :D :D :D  He thought the woods were on fire.

Next Wednesday is the full moon, Feb 20th. It is also time for another lunar eclipse for us up here in the NE. Lasting 3-4 hours and in full eclipse for around an hour. I think it's around 10:00 pm for us Maritimers.

Just a heads up.
Move'n on.

A typical winter scene in Iowa



We got ice and then snow so when the sun came out the ice on the trees would glow, couldn't quite get it on my camera.

I always wondered what that leftover rope was doing in the tree Paul. :D

This old red elm just keeps shedding branches but leafs back out each spring. For some reason those don't seem to get the elm disease all the other varieties do here.

I've never seen clouds like this here, in May. Looks like snow clouds to me. It's hailing on my shop in little chips right now. No rain. Just tiny bits of hail. Never mind. Turned into rain the instant I typed that. ::)







I am supposed to have a 36" bar buried in a big Elm tree right now, but running chainsaws don't mix well with this stuff . . . .

Same weather here all week. Todays shows just started as I finished piling up 1.5 cord of furnace wood.

Monday at 4:00 pm I just finished up thinning for the day and it all let loose hard rain and lightening as I drove off the lot, yesterday 3 or 4 showers. Managed to thin 3 acres with the brush saw though in 2.5 days.

I'z just setting in my chair in the livingroom with I looked out the window to see the Goodyear blimp go past. By the time I got my camera, it had got a little far away. What next?

Update...  I was in error when I said it was the Goodyear blimp.  Mary had the binoculars and when she first looked at it said it was the Goodyear blimp.  A while ago she corrected me.  She now says it was some ad like "The power of if".
