Casting a Shadow

This could be Kansas City, but it’s not. Cassini catches some Saturnian clouds and the shadows they cast on lower cloud levels on the planet.

Snow day for the area children today, as yesterday’s freezing rain made driving dangerous. In our subdivision, it was nearly impossible to get out, as we live at the top of a hill. I’ve been able to get to the bottom of the hill often enough, but the traction coming home can be a beast.

The First Big Snow is already coating our black ice with a nice protective blanket. Could be another snow day tomorrow, which means more father-daughter sledding on neighborhood slopes. Dad is feeling a bit sore right now. Some from the sledding and some from the news that my staff colleagues gave their assent to hosting a big funeral from another parish Saturday morning. The Advent decorators weren’t too happy when I called them and asked if they could come at noon.

Good thing you can’t fling an Advent candle through a phone connection.
