The Indoor Outdoor Magic.

leave a comment

I don’t want to go to far out on a limb, but I bet it was a New Englander that came up with the idea for the indoor outdoor remote thermometer. Really, I do. My mother is totally addicted to hers and she bought me one for my office for Christmas. Now I’m addicted. Something about the weather. I tell ya. Around here there’s always something to say about the weather. And with this puppy you have twice as much to say!

Streets White With Snow.

A view while working today:

I usually have my head on straight. Which is to say I very much value the contents of the bag I sling over my back when I head out and do what I do. However, on Tuesday afternoon I left something of significant value in a place that I completely forgot about for a solid 6 hours. That’s how long it took me to realize that I only had 2 Nikon Speedlights in my bag and my handy-dandy blue-handled clamp was missing. A panicked email to my contact for Tuesday’s shoot and I felt a bit better. After an early morning drive in the snow back to the scene of my stupidity for something completely different I pondered the probabilities. A few hours later I had what I had left in my hands. Safe and sound. Given where I left the SB-800 I’m not really surprised that this leaving was a total non-event. Good people surrounded it from the moment I placed it where I did. Just one person failed in his duties to retrieve his possessions. That would be me. I am very happy to get my gear back, and thank all involved.

All good people. A good karma day for sure.

Waking Up To Storms

Woke up to snow and it’s blowing pretty good right now. First things first, a bit of shoveling before prepping to head out.
