Oh. My. Gosh. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not a very good decision.

We had one started by the park service doing a "controlled burn" on a day like that. It got away from them. I can't even remember which one it was now.

What an awful year this has been for fires, all over the world. :-(

And what's even better, they did it again the next day [In reply to] Can't Post

in the North Island at Wairuou.
Some of the people in the path of the West Melton fire are a tad grouchy.

Edited to add that as I was typing this, I noticed a very strong smell of smoke outside, so there is yet another fire somewhere. Unsure

Some lovely children set fire to a garden at my school last night. It took hold quickly, and spread to the classroom block which is joined to mine. I have no doubt that if the neighbour over the fence from our school had not put his garden hose on the fire until the fire brigade arrived, I might have started a thread today to say that my classroom had burned to the ground.

And edited yet again to fix my typo in the post title.

Ah hell. [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank goodness the neighbour was on the ball!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I finally got a nice ice photo. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't suppose anyone will see it, but here it is. I went out to dump the half-frozen water out of the birdbath and refill it, and found these amazing ice crystals sticking up from the bottom. Each one is about two inches across.

It's been shirtsleeve weather in the day here, but it does freeze at night.

What crazy zigs and zags! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's as if a spider went ice-skating there, spinning silk all the while! Cool

It wasn't flat at all, though. [In reply to] Can't Post

The photo doesn't do justice to the three-dimensionality of it. All those planes are angled toward the camera. It reminded me of the ice fortress in that old Superman movie.

Yes, now that you speak of it. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was trying to retrieve that recall. But also it reminds me of the rock structure below the Misty mountains in goblin town.

But that is nasty. It is beautiful on one hand, (on 1 side of the brain) and a mesmerizing 'expression in geometry' on the other.

Thanks for adding in!:)

Oh yes. [In reply to] Can't Post

When I walked home the other day it was below -20C. Add the cold winds and it felt like -40 as I was walking across a bridge! Brr.



The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
