Back on topic... does my cat count?

She keeps me company in the back yard while I work on my cars. And she totally decimates the local rodent population.

You've heard of the 'calm before the storm'?
Here's where that phrase comes from.

We are but a fw hours from landfall of hurricane Laura, and as almost always, right before a storm, the sunset and sunrise are especially impressive. Sunset today:

"Orange Skies... Nothing but Orange Skies do I see..."




I think of Wednesday, September 9, 2020, as The Day Without Sun.

That's a photograph looking towards the Golden Gate Bridge (I think) that connects San Francisco with the land to the north, on the other side of the San Francisco Bay.

I don't know the time of day for the photograph. If it was anything like it was here, close to San Jose, it could have been anytime during the day. From sunrise to sunset the sky was overcast with an orange-tinted haze from horizon to horizon. It seemed more like night than day. It never seemed to get any brighter outside, even as the morning gave way to afternoon. There were reports of people being momentarily confused, upon awakening, whether the time on their 12-hour clock was AM or PM. One father with a planetary sense of humor told his children that their neighborhood had been transported to the planet Mars during the night.

It's the wildfires (of course) combined with winds that pushed the smoke to lower altitude as it moved it into the Bay Area.

Thursday was kind of like Wednesday.

I guess this is "cheating" because I did not take that photograph (it's from the LA Times) but I think the exceptionality of this report makes it excusable for me.

That was a joke. A gag. A gotcha.

I hope it's not something I already did in the first seven pages of this thread, but it wouldn't surprise me if that were the case.

Yesterday, it was very hazy and overcast here....or so I thought. This morning, watching the local TV news, I learned that it is smoke from California. Four years ago, you guys tried to force Hillary on us, and now once again, you are blowing smoke up our azure skies. Cut it out, man!

While out trying to find a flu vaccine (not available) I found this shopping center called Archway. Where did they get this name?

These two are eyeballing each other for customers.

That is a flute. I got it a few months ago and used it here: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum6/HTML/125461.html

It is very different from anything else I have ever played, except maybe a beer bottle. If you don't get the embouchure exactly right, you get no sound at all. The good thing is it is not a transposing instrument.

I am just about done with another song and will post it soon.

The weather made a big change over the weekend, from 100o last week to a high of 70o and windy. The birds were out in droves on my bicycle ride.

Today I saw a kingfisher, an osprey, a raven, a northern harrier, a hummingbird, a blue heron and several red tailed hawks.

One of the hawks flew right across my path, flared his wings, turned upwind and came to a complete stop, hovering in mid air no more than 15-20 yards away. Beautiful!
