Winter Light

The Springwater Corridor on New Years Day as in ummm, yesterday. In the afternoon. You'd have to have been here in Portland lately to realize how unusual the light is. Lovely lovely light. We have been living in a cloud, a heavy wet cloud full of particulate matter.

I hate to say it, but what we need is some good old fashioned rain. Our snowpack could sure use some beefing up.

So how I missed this video when 18 million other folks didn't, is beyond me but just in case you are one of the three remaining people left on earth that hasn't seen this video from the space station, enjoy! The interview is fun too. Turns out that my walking companion yesterday shipped out as a young man in the Navy with two of Chris Hafdield's shuttle crew mates that went on to become astronauts.

How cool is that?
