Stickin' Close to Home

One day into the three day weekend and already things are heatin’ up and meltin’ down. As evening approaches parents are calling their kids in. The sky is a strange color and thunder is crashing and lightning flashing. In the background you can hear the sirens. The Sheriff headed out for accidents on the Interstate or ambulances headed down for a drowning at the River.

My son Phil is camping up at Beacon Rock State Park and chances are he is going to get wet. I was up there earlier today to visit him. Took the dogs and had a nice afternoon sitting around and enjoying nature. For about an hour a beautiful eagle swooped in wide circles in the sky over our heads. The campground was full and it seems folks are staying closer to home because of the soaring gas prices.

I’m staying really close to home. In my very own living room. Although I may go out on the front porch and watch the sky show. Probably a good idea to get off the computer and the cell phone. Here comes the hail. Wow. Later…
