A Bright Star in the Sky and Three Wise Men
« on: January 20, 2009, 03:52:44 AM »
For the last three days here in Seattle, we have seen an incredibly bright star in the sky, visible during the day.  Everyone is talking about it and it is dominating the even news.  People have been flocking to parks and looking up in the sky marveling at its beauty and everyone is wandering the streets with huge smiles on their faces.  There is an air of hope that makes me wonder if three Wise Men are just around the corner. 

I went and googled "bright star visible daytime" and read about it.  This particular object is a G2V category star that has yet to be named but according to google it is commonly referred to as the Sun.  I can't help but notice that its occurrence coincided with Bush's farewell radio/tv address.

Sunny days are few and far between here.  When we have a sunny day people act like they have overdosed on prozac.  Check out the first link in the thread I posted on local commercials for what a typical Seattle day looks like:)

It's the same with the weather here in NZ...just a hint of sun and the shorts and T's come out of the closet.. ;)

I remember the snow you had not so long ago.

I grew up in the midwest and my roommate is from Minnesota.  We both commented that December was like childhood back east.  He had 10 days off from work and when it started snowing, I mentioned it to him but he thought it was the rare flake we see around here and went back to his game.  Later, as he was going out for a Coke run, he opened the door and went, "Whoa!!".  Yeah, I said, its freaking snowing out.  We live on top of a hill (the whole city is hills) and we had no bus service for a week. 

And then after the snow came the floods.  And now the landslides.  The other day some one said that at least we haven't had an earthquake.  Boy, did I shoot him a dirty look as I knocked on wood.

Seattle is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen on sunny days.

Seattle is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen on sunny days.

I have lived in Miami, LA, SF, Chicago, Pennsylvania, and Indiana and I would agree that on a sunny summer day, its the most beautiful place in the country.  Unfortunately, summer begins here around July 10th and promptly ends August 31st. 

It's said that a Seattle native can identify 52 shades of grey.  I'm up to 47:)

I don't know how you do it.

I go three days without sun and I am having withdrawals. Of course, we have the skin cancer rate to prove it, too!  ;)

HUGS,

Mark

I have grow lights in the living room on 16 hours a day.  My miniature rose bush is blooming, my lettuce will be ready in a couple of weeks, and the basil is doing okay.  Add in some Lexapro, a therapist, and my yearly threat to commit suicide and I'm good ( I keep a rope by the end of the couch in case the mood strikes). I'm applying for disability and if (major if) it goes through, I'm moving back to LA. 

Last night I dreamed that I was flying and wearing a short sleeved shirt on a warm sunny day.  It wasn't my ability to fly that stuck out in the dream:)

hehehe.

it took me a while to get it... but i'm a bit sluggish this morning after sweltering in our third or fourth or fifth consecutive day of temps in the high 90's and humidity to match. Eek.

It didn't get below 78 overnight which made for a damn sticky night trying to sleep. I had the french doors open on my balcony to let what little breeze their was filter in... the downside to this was the mozzies also had free access to me... i hope they all catch aids from me and die.

there's no let up in site with these conditions to prevail for a few more days yet.
