Gray but OK

  Today was anything but the sunlight edition. The sky was flat gray all day. It seemed like dusk began as soon as the sun came up. But it was an OK day to do my road walk.

Even the drainage ditch managed to look a little appeaing. sinuous stream of water

The barnyard grass held tight to brown instead of giving in to the universal gray. barnyard grass

I found three mourning doves hunkered down high in a tree. They were all fluffed up against the cold. See the link below for how sleek they look in summer. mourning doves

The biggest excitement was this lightning strike. Yeah, I'm pulling your leg. It's snow in the cracks in the road. snow filled cracks in asphalt

In other news, I wrote a chapter in the morning and worked on several projects in the afternoon. I felt really disciplined, despite not finishing any of the afternoon tasks. Progress was made. That has to count.
