lites on...lites off

Here's Art cleaning up the generator we bought today. We got a super-duper-duper deal on it and now don't have to worry about the power outages that seem quite frequent here. Yesterday we had no electricity for 22 hours. That's not too good for the food in the freezers. To top it off, the phone went out for a few hours, too.

We had a light show of a different kind 2 nights ago, though. The northern sky was full of aurora borealis.....bright green ribbons of wavy, glowing lights. It's hard to get a picture of, so here's one I stole off the internet. It looked a lot like this.

Oh. SO my lesson for today... read before you brag... just hauled everyone in my office to show them your amazing northern lights picture. I bragged about your photo taking abilities (which, lets face it, are pretty darn great) then someone pointed out that this pic was ripped of the Inet.

PS. Malcolm I didn't tell!
