Up, up, and away…

A picture from an annual balloon festival I attended some years back… Now… I had thought to accompany this pic with a video of “Up, up and away” by the Fifth Dimension… a frothy little confection of bubblegum pop from the late 1960’s… But some things just haven’t aged as well as others.

What the…?

April Fools… … a day late… So, I got up this morning to some five or six inches of the white stuff… And we’re not referring to the sand of a pristine tropical beach, here… Nor are we talking about a newly minted stack of printer paper, either… The equinox was a coupla’ two tree weeks back that away (⬅ that way, if anyone’s counting…)

It’s getting closer…

… to an actual, honest-to-goodness, by-god semblance of Spring around here… By which I mean the average temperature has inched up a few degrees, on average… It’s still too cold for any extended time outdoors, without standing under anything less than a burning man celebration… But the spring astrophotography season is creeping ever closer. I can’t wait… Gonna try my hand at some DSO’s this year. That’s deep space objects, for those of you who don’t reside quite as far off-planet as I do. Meanwhile, a picture from the high plains of California’s Yosemite National Park… Just looking at it makes me thirsty…
