Weather report this morning said a "light dusting" of show today.
We got a mini winter storm instead.
3" of snow and sleet with driving winds and super slick roads.
I'm still wondering what the qualifications are to be a weather guy on TV.
A background in horseshoes or hand grenades?

I've driven through there and would enjoy riding there too. I'll be only 78 then so I can mark one more thing off of my bucket list.

A simple thank you will never be enough.

I'm a 'possible attendee' for '20, I'd very much enjoy FINALLY meeting some of the members here.

You're not planning on riding that Morphous-dite to Arkansas next year, are you?

Is Arkansas where the Maxi-scoots get-together is being held next year? I'm kinda 'out of the loop' on this stuff these days.

DUH! Never mind, I see the thread on it now.

... when itís time for bed, we merely pull down the light blocking window shades and hit the pillow.


Before our visit folks warned us we'd have trouble adjusting and sleeping ... never happened.  But we did take notice of the heavy curtains in the places we stayed - good for insulation and blocking light.

Love that summer shot.

We got some of that summer never-dark when we were in Scotland. Weird.

For those who aren't adjusting their "frame of reference", you might add some times.  On 12/30 there, isn't sunrise a bit after 10am, and sunset a bit before 4pm?  So, by the clock, one could get a sunrise pic, have a leisurely lunch, and then get a sunset pic.

For those who don't live there, or haven't visited, it's kind of a different world (on many levels). [I'm just in the visitor class, and loved it]

Thatís a fairly accurate time frame.  Actually, that time of year we have around 5 hours of actual daylight. I donít recall what time I was up there and took that picture, but it was around2 or 3 in the afternoon.  I love the concept of sunrise, lunch, then sunset!  Good one.

Then thereís the reverse.  In the summer, during June and the first part of July, thereís virtually no actual ďdarknessĒ where the sky is all black.  Weíll have about 19 and a half hours of daylight and the rest is, at best, dusk.  If you go far enough north, you can take time sequence photos of the Midnight sun and watch its track as it dips toward the horizon then starts going back up again before actually dropping below the horizon!!  Now thatís different.  Up on the Arctic coast, during the summer it never does get dark, and at the end of December, there is just a couple hours of daylight/dusk.  We love the extended daylight hours in the summer, and when itís time for bed, we merely pull down the light blocking window shades and hit the pillow.

So that previous sunset shot was made around 3PM, possibly a bit earlier.  By contrast, hereís one I took in mid July, I think, at around 11pm.
