Beautiful Sunset, But No Snow

It got cool, this afternoon. At 11:00 am it was 61ºF. And then the temperatures started to plunge. By the time I picked up Sara, the temperatures dropped to 40ºF. A strong wind brought the cold front in. Some neighboring cities had snow flurries. But we weren’t as lucky. While I made hot cocoa for the girls, the Sun peeked through the clouds, right before sunset. Well, we’ve got rewarded with a little bit of sun at the end of the day.


We’ve got rewarded with a nice sunset, this evening.

Winter Solstice/Yuletide

In the Northern Hemisphere we celebrate the return of the Sun, today. It will be the shortest day and the longest night, before the days will be come longer, also known as the Winter Solstice or the Pagan Yuletide. The Southern Hemisphere celebrates Mid-Summer/Summer Solstice, today. It’s the longest day, and the shortest night of the year. So wherever is your home on this beautiful planet, Happy Solstice to you all!

Serenity ~ Sunrise At Joe Pool Lake

At this morning, Kevin and the girls were at the 5K-Pumpkin Run in Lynn Creek Park. Over the years, I made it a tradition to photograph the sunrise (weather-permitted) at Joe Pool Lake.

Solar Eclipse Poem


Annual Solar Eclipse in North Texas on May 20, 2012

The Solar Eclipse

A one life wonder
A treasure to behold.
Animals all ponder
Stories have been told.

Farmers don’t have a clue
Everybody glares at this sight.
People climb for a better view
Suddenly day turns to night.

Everyone tries to get a glimpse
Out of the blue it turns cold.
Will there be a apocalypse
Next time it occurs, everyone will be old.
