The skies have turned that prolonged color of grey. Shades of grey, day after day. I will be alright for awhile longer, but by February or March, I will crave blue, warmth, sunshine, dryness. In the meantime, I will look at photos that recall blue skies.
“At sunrise or sunset, sunlight takes a much longer path through the atmosphere than during the middle part of the day. Because an increased amount of violet and blue light is scattered out of the beam along the way, the light which reaches an observer early or late in the day is reddened. Thus, it could be said that sunsets are red because the daytime sky is blue. This notion is perhaps best illustrated by example: a beam of sunlight that at a given moment produces a red sunset over the Appalachians is at the same time contributing to the deep blue of a late afternoon sky over the Rockies.” (NOAA)

I do attempt to occasionally mention safety, survival topics but usually not so many in a row.

So things are looking up and I will indeed look past the weeds toward that blue sky. I will disperse my safety topics and provide more positivity.
Let’s see. I need to spread out yellow jackets, poison oak, rattlesnakes, heat stroke, sunscreens, mosquito borne diseases, ticks & lyme disease, tsunami debris, footwear, safe food storage, safe gassing lawn mowers, …………………….
