Fur Rondy!!



Hi Anchorage - enjoy since I can't be there!!

It's been a horrible week. But the Northern Lights are out here, BIG TIME.

The above is Susan Stevenson's work Susan Stevenson Photography). Go there for the stuff we're seeing NOW, tonight! Here's a get-started for DU'ers:



A friend of mine is awesome photographing these wonders. What's even better is seeing them, hearing them, and yes, feeling them.

After a very fraught combat shopping experience at the grocery store, we were on our way home and decided to decompress by taking the long way. That got us away from the "downtown" lights. These babies, above, were visible from suburban (?) areas, and when we got to our long, dark road............. wow. We stopped; to hell with the groceries.

He's been here since 1952, me only since 1968. The lights? Forever, and they evoke the same reaction every single time.

Susan (the photographer) sells her stuff, too - and she's the best I've encountered for this type of photography.

Enjoy!

Someone got me a heart?

Wow. I am humbled (I cried, too, but I'm old, and allowed). Whoever you are, you made this old gal's Valentine's week one to remember. My thanks and........wow, can I send you some aurora or snow (fresh) or warmer weather or a cat? No, cats stay home. Yes, I'm rambling, that's how I deal with gratitude!
