My brain refused to cooperate today. I was going to leave you with some pithy political insight… but blah. Instead, you get weather and.. stuff. You probably will like this post better, anyhow. Warning, most of it is just silly and doesn’t make sense. But you understand.Ladies and gents, this is what Mardi Gras looks like in the Frozen North. 😉 Those beads better be gleaming pearls to get the desired reaction. Or maybe diamonds. You don’t want to get frost-bite for cheap plastic. Because they used to have fun at Bryn Mawr. Corollary– awesome dress!
And now for something completely different…(above) Because it’s no fun to be looking at snow when you are cold and thinking about solar minimums, let’s look at Pyrocumulus clouds instead. That gold plated sesquipedalian word merely refers to clouds created by massive wildfires. This is called the Willow Brush fire, and as far as I can tell it happened near Payson, Arizona. It burned Mazatzal Wilderness in 2004. (above) For comparison, this is the Yellowstone fire in 2008. Look! I see grass! It’s GREEN! And trees, too! Why, there might be a deciduous tree in there somewhere!
Here we have proof of the truism: Fire bad. Tree pretty.
Next up: once again we are changing up, because fuzzy headedness is a fickle beast…(above) This is almost as good as the crow coat hanger nest. I love stuff like this, even if it’s not politically correct. Yes, it’s wasteful, trashy, tasteless and just plain…funny. Granted, I’m not taking anything seriously today.
When music videos first happened (yes, I AM that old), my mother and I (I was pretty young then) mapped out a music video that reminds me of the above. Imagine a volkswagen beetle abandoned at the sea side slowly deteriorating into a shopping cart. Ironically we were both fans of said automobile. I wish I could remember which song we were going to use to set the tableau.Heck, this one even looks like the one we used to own. Paint and everything.
