fosty Needles

Fogfrost needles on the birdhouse roof. Thick fog all day created little needles of frost all over everything exposed to the gentle flow of moisture from the south. Fragile, yet they grew to 1/2-3/4 of an inch long.

pumpkin Bombing

First, you get up your courage to fly a glider. Next, you put a pumpkin in your pocket or the cockpit or somewhere. Finally, you take off on your flight, find the target and drop the pumpkin. Closest hit to the bull's eye wins this stunning handcrafted trophy! Today's the event day, it is a lovely sunny morning, with no wind. Safe travels, flyers.

glacial blue

Power back after 56 hours, some folks still out. Trees down, no school, roads blocked, plows out, sun is shining. Thanks to our electric co-op folks who worked through the storm and are still working to get heat and light back to everybody. It has been quite a weekend for the beginning of October! See www. for lots of pictures.
