SkyWatch Friday: Chill of an early Winter!
As if moving weren't hard enough, look at the temperatures we had to do it in! Had to have set a record. Brrrr...
And in September, no less. But check out this rugged soul, wearing just shorts and a tshirt in those brutal temps...
LOL - I noticed this sign immediately when we'd stopped at WalMart on our way to the cottage early one morning, and was glad I had my camera with me so I could get photos before someone noticed and fixed the glaring boo-boo. But it continued to read -196ºF for three days! Definitely a new record. ;-)
For more worldwide skies (and weather), visit...

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
