The Weather Man Was Right

We actually got some snow and ice here yesterday which kind of surprised me.  The meteorologists have been telling us off and on for the past few weeks that we were going to have winter weather but it’s never been true.  So when they predicted it earlier this week I rolled my eyes and blew it off.  But we did get some and around one in the morning I went out and took a few pics:

No flash was needed and I wanted to take more from down the street but at the risk of one of my neighbors seeing me out in the wee hours of the morning snapping pictures and thinking I was some sort of loon or perv, I decided against it.  No need for cops or for some concerned citizen taking matters into their own hands.  I did take a couple more that night and some this afternoon of the ice in my back yard and posted them here.

The Natural State

Everyone has those times in their lives when everything is so chaotic they can’t remember what day it is.  When you’re getting ready one morning and realize the entire week has passed and the last memory you had was from two weeks ago because everything since then is one gigantic blur.  So you neglect things.  Important things, like eating for example.  Or sleeping.  Or your blog.  Well, for me, this isn’t one of those times.  I’m eating plenty thank you.  I haven’t missed a meal, snack, semi-snack, or satisfied munchies in quite a while.

Anything less than 9 hours of sleep is unacceptable and don’t forget naps during the day.  I’m turning into a cat.  Well, except for bathing myself with my tongue and coughing up hairballs.  So why is it again that I’m negleting this blog?  I dunno.

I’m going to copy off myself and post pictures from my photoblog on here.  I took these over the Thanksgiving weekend when I went hiking at Petit Jean National Park.  It’s crazy that I love nature photography and Arkansas is the natural state.  But in all my years of growing up here this was my first time to ever go hiking here in Arkansas.  Go figure.
