A pretty sad presentation for storm preparations at the Home Depot. They only suggested water and various light solutions. No whistles, tools, maps, batteries, plastic sheeting and a bunch of other stuff I could think of.
Had a wonderful evening after work with British friends at a farm where we ate organic food, drank beer and wine, and watched sheep being sheared. Most of my friends have cats or dogs but Ann and Robert have a lamb who thinks she's a dog. Meet Lady Georgiana.
The production area is empty at 3pm. Everyone had to leave because we were all stuffed and drowsy after our free lunch of the best papusas ever, delivered by a happy client! Or maybe it's just because it's a holiday weekend!
Finally getting my patio sorted out out and ready for potting plants this weekend . I had to move some tree trunks and disrupted an ants' nest. It was pretty cool watching how they 'packed up' and moved everything, and the speed at which they did it.
Severe flooding on the way to work. This is the crossroads at Manassas Battlefields and I'm about to go through the water that is flowing over the top of a bridge which is actually supposed to be a spanning a small creek.
A photo of my 50D screen. At Blandy photo club and our subject for this evening's shoot is 'texture'. I think I got it when I spotted this little frog dozing on a warm rock. The image on my camera is much better focused than this shot.
Because I left for work a little later than usual it took me 2 1/4 hours to travel under 30 miles. The joys of NoVA traffic. I took these images along the route which although was very slow was, for the most part, pretty.
