Let It Be -- just in time

For several years, I've been meaning to stop some time when the light was nice and take a picture of this amazing scene on Blue Rock Road. A guy named Jim (I think) used to sit in one of the chairs sometimes and watch the road, but he seems to be gone.

I finally took the picture on a foggy morning a couple of weeks ago. This past Friday, when I was driving home from work, I saw that it had been turned into a pile of sticks.

This one is worth clicking so you can see it bigger.

Weird Sunset

Our correspondent Evan Raskin sent this picture of a strange sunset. Tal and Jeff, who are part of our scientific braintrust, are of the opinion that this is the shadow of a thunderhead. Jeff reports that the peaks of cumulonimbus clouds typically go as high as 40,000 feet. (That would be 7-1/2 miles.)
