Well, it has finally happened - Rob graduated to a "Smart" phone from his reliable flip phone. He's not always all that happy about it because a phone is supposed to be for making calls... so there.
However, there are times when the camera is not on his person and there is something that needs to be captured. The quality is kind of sad in comparison to the camera, of course, but hey, make lemonade!
High Tunnel Lights
Over the past couple of years we have acquired some solar 'Christmas' lights. They obviously work better during the time of year when there is more sun (for some strange reason) but we like the idea of having solar as opposed to plug-in lights if we can. Sadly, we have found that they tend to get beat up pretty quickly despite being rated as 'outdoor' lights. Oh.. and rabbits actually like to chew the wires. Alas.
Rob went out to complete the chores a few nights ago and caught an odd glow out of the corner of his eye towards the East.
His brain said something along the lines of "wait a minute, it's evening, the sun is setting over..... WHAT?!"
Sure enough, the burn was three to four miles to our East (and slightly South). We're glad it was a planned burn and we're glad we were aware and making sure there wasn't an undetected fire that needed attention. And, I think we were also glad to note that we weren't the only ones that were checking it out. Sometimes we wonder if people are paying attention.
Yep, guess so!
