2020 February 03 Monday in Liberty Hill, Texas
am puzzled. The moon is in the first quarter. With my eyes I see a partial moon, but in these three photos taken last night, it appears perfectly round. Can any of you clever folks explain this phenomenon?
n this predawn photo the sky looks so light. It’s the attempt of my camera to adjust for the low light.
ow the sun, though still below the horizon, has a layer of clouds ablaze. The sky above is now much darker. This is also caused by the camera’s auto setting trying to dim the overly bright clouds.
nce again, as I capture the morning sun, the camera darkens everything else. Pretty amazing technology.
This is about a seven minute video of the road between our home and Liberty Hill, our nearest town. As I watched the video, I realized that you really don’t experience the hills and curves this way. Trusty me this is not a road that you would want to use for a bicycle race. And yet every year there are groups of dozens or more doing just that. I suspect they must all have death wish.
t was chicken enchiladas, beans, hominy, and mandarin oranges for lunch at the Georgetown senior center today. There were king cakes free for three taking. So we took one. Attendance was down at this center also, though not as low as the Leander center.
fter lunch we drove to the Wal-Mart in Cedar Park for prescriptions, groceries, and household supplies. It was also a good time to top off Rudolf the red nose pickup’s fuel tank.
peaking of tanks, it seemed like a good idea to dump the black and gray water tanks before the not-so-nice weather arrives this week.
hose of you with keen observational skills, will have noticed that Tuesday’s low temperature is only one degree lower than Wednesday’s high temperature. Also notice the rain and freezing temperatures. That is seldom considered a good thing. Itcsn lead to accidents of the automotive kind as well as the slip, fall, and break a bone kind.
hese photos are posted in reverse chronological order. But I like to end the post with the best photograph.
