If Somebody’s Moving

She Shook Me Cold

We met upon a hill, the night was cool and still
She sucked my dormant will
Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
My God, she shook me cold

The problem with this photo is there is snow laying on top of green grass!  The snow fell last night, and it’s supposed to be Spring.  Ugh!

Glare #glare

glare_9902 blogIt’s dangerous driving in Wisconsin.  See where the red arrow is pointing?  That is glare from the ice on the road.  Some roads are covered with ice or water and when the sun is at a certain angle, with all the light reflecting off the road and into your windshield, you can’t see anything and it’s downright dangerous.  This is a conservative example.

Sometimes the roads are one big white glare.  It is not fun.
