Spring Lights!

We have had some amazing Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) lately.

Instead of the usual green, we have also had shades of pink, purple, red, and yellow; people have been able to see them as far south as New Mexico. These spectacular night shows are caused by some unusual solar flare activity and are expected to continue until about the middle of 2025.

Happy Monday.

Roof Glacier Update 3

Relatively speaking, my roof glacier is almost gone.

March 20

On February 16, it still had some drama going on.

Now it is just a pale version of itself and soon the sun will have its way and melt it completely. Nature’s plans are difficult to avert.

I don’t mind saying goodbye to this roof glacier even though it’s likely to be the last one I will experience. The south beckons and I will be permanently leaving in seven months’ time.

I’m much more interested in that blue sky and what it promises.
