No, this is not going to be a political post.
It’s Friday afternoon as I write this, and there’s been more weather than I like to see. All sorts of precipitation and temperatures dropping below then rising above freezing. Lather, rinse, repeat. Which leads to the forecast (guess) of tomorrow being sunny and clear and thus another potential day to get another load of firewood in. If it actually happens. The forecasts (guesses) are notoriously inaccurate of late.
When I drove out Monday the road was so bad I thought everything was going to come apart at the molecular level. The trailer has suffered some damage, in fact. So has my body. The drive is rougher than the work. Since then it has rained and frozen and thawed more, meaning the road has likely been demolished more. I only need five more loads to fill the woodshed. The future forecast has once again gone from “sunny all week” to “nothin’ but snowfall”. November will be here soon, and the weather doesn’t get any better when it arrives. Furthermore the Xterra’s licensing expires then and I am loathe to pay for additional time when I won’t be using the rest of the Winter. It just doesn’t make sense.
As far as photography goes, the conditions of late are pretty far from ideal or even acceptable for taking pictures. I have a few “stored up” and the odd shot around the yard, but no real effort is forthcoming any time soon. I have concocted an “Equipment Advancement Plan” which may or may not be possible to implement. We’ll have to wait and see.
Things would be much easier if we could predict the future. Even if only the weather for the next day.
