Utterly depressing.


More fun with the sun today.

Hey baby, the skys on fire.

We were very much unaffected by the nastiness that the storm named Sandy laid on the northeast. We got some wind today and some clouds last night and today. But those clouds were loaded with cold air and ice crystals and they made for some interesting skies.

Last night’s full moon was muted by the high cloud layer, but the clouds produced a nice effect.

Today the ice crystals produced a couple of sun dogs.

And a spectacular sunset.

Ups and Downs of the Week

Detroit Tigers – Swept the Yankees from the ALCS. Now they need to do the same in the World Series.

  Weather – The weather has been crappy since we got back from vacation. Usually this time of year we have sunny days in the 70’s and I’m driving the Z4 daily. It hasn’t budged from the garage since we left for the UK over a month ago.

Ups and Downs of the Week

Red Sox – They’re just playing out the string now, testing new guys and so on. Fair enough. They took one from the Yanks and beat the Jays tonight, so not all bad.

 Weather – Been a nice week with warm days and cool nights. I love this time of year.

Baltimore Orioles – Still neck and neck with the Yanks.

Rokinon 35mm f1.4 – Love this lens. I don’t use it enough.

Ups and Downs of the Week

Red Sox – I didn’t think it could get worse, but it has. No will to win at all, it seems.

Formula One – Back-to-back race weekends. This weekend they’re at Monza, which is another very fast track.

Baltimore Orioles – They’re fighting neck and neck with the Yankees for the ALE lead. It would be very cool if they took the ALE Championship and went on to win the World Series.

Weather – It’s been stormy all week, but it’s finally over and the weekend is supposed to be mid-70s and partly cloudy. I’m sick of the heat and humidity.

Ups and Downs of the Week.

Neil Armstrong – Neil Armstrong died this week. Armstrong was one hell of a courageous man. To go to the moon in a tiny capsule and step out there into the unknown took some serious guts. And yet upon his return he quietly went about his business with no fanfare or hoopla. His dignity matched his courage. He was the epitome of an American hero. And he was one of a small group of moon walkers that is getting smaller all the time.

Weather – More much needed rain this weekend, but sadly it’s going to rain all through the long weekend thanks to Isaac.

Red Sox – ‘Nuff said.

Formula One – F1 returns this weekend and it’s at Spa-Francorchamps, which is a classic circuit with the greatest turn in all of racing, Eau Rouge.

Back to the hot weather, although not into triple digits thankfully. Still, warm enough for a late afternoon dip in the bin.
