I had an appointment with my audiologist yesterday morning for my 6th month check up. I am tolerating the hearing aids because I need to be able to hear people when they talk with me. As they say in the trade, it is an essential function of my work. But when I finally retire they are going in the trash can. 🙂
Anyway enough about that. When I left the clinic I saw what looked like a “sun dog” around the sun and the closer I looked it appeared to be two rather bright spots (one on either side of the sun) and a faint rainbow around the sun. I thought about stopping to photograph it but with -40 degree wind chills I decided against getting out of the car, getting my camera (which was warm) and trying to take a picture of the phenomenon.
Then it occurred to me that I could use my little point and shoot camera from inside the car and stay toasty while capturing this incredible sight. Yes it may have turned out a little better with a DSLR but no so much better as to make it worth tolerating the numbing cold wind.
So I got the picture and stayed warm, (had my cake and ate it too as it were.)
One more day of this harsh weather and then the forecast calls for a little moderation. Stay alert and warm today.
Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
