Tree

And while I'm online and posting, a photo.

We're likely to get our first thunderstorm of the season in the next few days, which is a prospect that I'm relishing. (The thunder-snow we had a couple of weeks ago, while neat, isn't quite the same thing.) So with the thaw basically complete, and spring about to pounce into green any day now, let's recall the long winter just past with a tree.

Good accompanying reading: around the time I took this picture, I spent an entire evening engrossed by Wikipedia's List of Notable Trees.

A knarled tree tops a snowy knoll on campus in early February, reaching upwards into a cold sky. Not cloudy exactly, but the high cirrus do obscure the stars and throw back enough city light to create a noticeable sky glow.
