So far, February has been a month of extreme weather. Snow, a couple days over 60°F, more snow, then over 80°F. Now it's absolute zero outside. That, or the battery in the remote sensor has died.

I hate you all. But at least I'm not up in Boston...

Ash nazg durbatulûk Ash nazg gimbatul Ash nazg thrakatulûk Agh burzum-ishi krimpatul. So it is written on the One Ring in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, words in the Black Speech ...

This is, I think, the fourth time I've gone out to work on fixing the trailer door. And the first time it didn't start raining when I did so. Finished.

And we have power again, after a little over 3 hours without it. If we had to have a power outage, this was a good day for it. The temperature outside was around 70°F (21°C) so we didn't need heat or air conditioning. We were forced to go out for lunch, which was not a great hardship.

I did not expect the afterlife to seem so familiar.

But "cow lost" is so much more interesting than "low cost".

It does make radio commercials all that much better.  "At the cow, cow, cow lost of 1995!" sounds like an almost Fortean phenomenon.

It's still snowing, but the wind has died down so I went out and did a bit of shoveling. It's too drifted to really tell how much we have. Parts of my driveway range from 8" to 20".

It's fairly light snow except for a bit that melted at the bottom. Shovelling it wouldn't be too bad if I had a smaller driveway.

Maybe next year, Bruce. I was out of town and couldn't come. Looks like a fantastic time was had by all, though. Blessed Yule and Merry Christmas.

The Denver County Fair is over. Tonight we set up the art show for Rocky Mountain Fur Con.  Tomorrow morning, we set up the art show for MALcon. Then 10 days off before setup for the Denver Modernism Show.

Everything crowds into August.We may not do more than four shows in the rest of the year.

Dear Google;
I clicked on a "+5" icon, but it only added one. Please fix this.

If it always added the amount the icon showed, you'd end up counting by powers of two. You could even display it as such: the icon would initially show "+2^0", then "+2^1", "+2^2", etc. That would be mathematically correct as well as revealing the number of votes received to date.

Fluorescents vary in both their color temperature and color rendering index.  The cheap industrial kind are often greenish and have a pathetic CRI.  Many colors will just fade out to gray when viewed in this light. High CRI fluorescent bulbs are available in a variety of color temperatures, but they're seldom used in most settings - they cost more.

Incandescent bulbs all have good CRI (unless they're tinted), but their color temperature varies. Lower wattages tend to be yellower. As you said, your eye automatically adjusts for color temperature. Cameras don't.  Fortunately, color temperature is relatively easy to change in post-processing - unlike a bad CRI, which isn't (your eyes can't compensate for it, either).

"Daylight" bulbs are often neodymium filtered. It makes the light look whiter but it does so by suppressing yellow - the apparent higher color temperature is bought at the expense of CRI.  If you control the lighting and want light more like mid-day sun, don't use neodymium bulbs; a quartz-halogen will do better.

(Pet peeve: "flourescent" lights, which I guess are found in bakeries)
