It’s been over a month since I’ve been out to try and enjoy myself, and today I did, mostly anyway. I headed out Arvon Rd to Back Bear Rd and then on Peshekee Grade, knowing the end of Peshekee Grade is really crappy where it’s paved, but it’s still a nice drive. Along the way I stopped at Quartzite Falls, took a few photos and onward. Somewhere north of the Peshekee, I was driving along minding my own business, then started to notice my rear view mirrors getting dark, so I stopped. Got out to find I was being chased by a thunderstorm, and it was moving fast right at me.
Was good to get out, and it did some good to my head and soul, even if it was just a little bit.

It’s hot, damn hot, outside today. We reached 86°F at 3:05 PM. If it wasn’t for the winds, reaching to 26 MPH, it would be oppressive.
In other news; I’ve started getting the garage in order for my wood shop. It’s only about half-way done, but it’s a start.
Holy temp swings today with shifting winds.
At 6:00 AM it was 31°.
At 11:45 AM it was 74°
At 1:40 PM it dropped to 53° and held around that temp until 4:40 PM when it was 50°
Now at 6:00 PM it’s back up to 78° and climbing at a rate of 25° an hour.
Been cooped up in the house too much of late, so I headed out Sunday to Point Abbaye.

Lava. The rock formations on Point Abbaye, and throughout the Keweenaw, are some of the oldest surface rock on earth, over 1 billion years old. Here you can see the flow pattern, ripples, of the lava that flowed over a billion years ago.
With the low December sun and the clouds moving in, the colors were ever changing.

After a long day driving Dawn down to Mount Pleasant MI and then back again, I was pooped. Sitting just watching out the window I saw some dark clouds rolling in but didn’t think much about it. I let the dogs out and after Eli came in I noticed that he was damp from rain, then in the corner of my eye I saw the bright glow of an end of a rainbow. I rushed to get my camera and ran outside to get some photos, but what I saw was more than just the end of a rainbow, it was a full arch. There is also a second, part of a double, rainbow on the far right side trying to shine through.
