Rambling Randomness

This is a photo P3 took of the first snow there in Creede, CO. Keep in mind this photo was taken in August I think. So they have had more snow since then. I am so glad that we gave him that camera. He has used it and shared the photos, well some of them. Now that his baby girl is here I hope he shares even more.

Today one of the coolest things happened. I was walking across campus under a bunch of trees and the leaves started falling. The breeze was very gentle but strong enough to send a few colored leaves down in front of me. Then I walked past a man filling his pipe with tobacco. MMM! Gotta love the smell of that. I was headed to the library to grab a computer and do some studying. In front of the library is a very nice, large water fountain. Last week it was spewing suds. Someone had put some sort of detergent in the fountain. There was foam everywhere. But I have to admit, it looked pretty cool. This week? Well this weekend is our homecoming game, so someone has put something orange in the fountain. I would have thought they would have done it for "Orange" Peel, but they waited until homecoming. It looks like of cool too. I wonder how much food coloring they have to use to keep that water that Orange. It is really really orange.

This is what I drove through this morning. Fog! Frog! Soup! Whatever you want to call it. I have heard more words for fog today than I have heard in a long time. What do you call it?

Here is some more of that fog stuff. Only I don't think I would want to be on that sailboat. Makes for a good kodak moment though.

Wow! What an eclectic (sp?) post this is.
Who does OSU play?
I know it's not OU because I think they play CO.
When I first looked at the last photo, I thought it was another moon. Oh no, not those again !
About the snow in Creed, I can see snow on the Mesa from my window now. But, we didn't get any in August.

That is some thick fog! We always just called it Thick as Pea Soup...but a light fog is a mist. I don't have any other words for it, but "nuisance" sometimes.

Your photos are always lovely. Is Creede at a really high elevation? Must be to get snow in August.

I'm a pea souper myself too.

Love the pictures! If it weren't for the vehicles and power lines, I would have thought the picture of Creede was taken in the late 1800's.
