The Fall of Indian Summer

Amidst the interesting potpourri of odd web information I have stumbled across in the last couple of weeks is this gem from 2dayBlog:
To most Christians, the Bible is like a software license. Nobody actually reads it. They just scroll to the bottom and click "I agree."
A sad but true summary of a great many religious persons and their relationship to the master source material of their belief system.

In other news, fall/winter has arrived here. A couple of weeks ago it was pleasant and in the 80's. Now we have had two snow storms and the third is forecast for tomorrow evening. So here are some pictures of L and I strolling in the park with Molly the wonder dog before the snows arrived, supplemented with a couple of pictures from my strolls about the neighborhood:

Of course, once you see the streaking ice crystals running across the sky, you know that snow and cold is not far away. So when I spotted this in the sky I knew that Indian fall was soon to fade away.

Sure enough, the next morning this was the view out the front door.

It warmed up and melted a bit, then snowed again and has stayed cooler so some of the snow is still around. So the predicted 6-8 inches tomorrow night will add to what is already hiding in the shade and make it seem like winter is coming. But at least I don't have to mow the lawn!

More later. I wanted to make sure you knew that I hadn't died. {*grin*} The MIL had double knee replacement surgery, I needed decommission a couple of servers here and replace them with more power efficient units, I have been changing my insulin regime, and ... In other words I have been a bit distracted and busy. I hope to get back to posting on a more regular basis soon.


  1. Agreed on the Bible part--hearing folks respond to a question is a sad evidence.

    Good to see the smiles and shorts this time of year--knowing that you'll pay for it later.

    Snow here last weekend and then almost 60 this weekend. I am all for the latter.

  2. Snow is so pretty. I really wish we could get at least one good snowstorm/year down here. Our leaves haven't even changed colors yet.

  3. Love the comment about the bible. Yep, now I've got another blog I have to check out!

  4. I'm loving that bible comment too :) Makes me frustrated every time I hear people misquote the bible whenever they use it to prove why it's ok to hurt other people. I'm quite tired of hearing "Because it's in the Bible" as an excuse.

    Looks like you had quite a nice Autumn, even though it was quite short. That's quite a lot of snow you've had already! We're still waiting for the colors to change but it is much noticeably colder these days :)


You know you want to ... so just do it!!!
