luster.

Standard

‘there is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky.’

-percy bysshe shelly

i’m not sure about today’s

hail, rain, snow, sun, wind, lightning, and thunder.

i suppose some could classify these as ‘luster’,

but probably not ‘harmony.’

The City of Ann Arbor Government
and the 
US National Weather Service – Detroit
issued this statement yesterday:

 

We lost 38 seconds of daylight yesterday. By the end of the month, we’ll be losing over 2 minutes each day and by the end of next month, nearly 20 minutes per week. Here’s what you can expect as you savor the waning days of Michigan’s warm season:

July: -45 minutes lost
August: -1 hour 16 minutes lost
September: -1 hour 22 minutes lost
October: -1 hour 23 minutes lost
November: -1 hour 1 minute lost

It won’t be long until you have an extra 6 hours of darkness to spend on your indoor hobbies. Have a great Monday.

i think that someone may have been very hot and had a tough monday.
“we’re burnin’ daylight.”

mixed feelings

when walking inside from another round of snow

and being greeted by a 4th of july display

at least i have my sandals on 

with my long down coat

and i am ready for anything.

“there are certain odd times and occasions

in this strange mixed affair we call life

when a man takes his whole universe for a vast practical joke.”

storming in like a buffalo

and out like a wing?

a  michigan ice cream shop hopes its promotion will take away some of your pothole pain. farmhouse coffee & ice cream in franklin in metro detroit, is giving free scoops of its michigan pothole ice cream to victims of potholes in the state.

if you spent money on pothole repairs, just bring in your receipt for a free single scoop in a cup or cone of the michigan pothole flavor. what’s in that flavor you ask? it’s described as “thick black tar fudge in rich chocolate ice cream with cookie asphalt pieces.” the offer is good for one scoop per receipt. the promotion ends on March 25, 2018.

“without ice cream there would be darkness and chaos.”
