365 Days of Earrings

Snow-covered rain


Rain poured down all day today, as forecast. As soon as I arrived at school, the power went off and on. As soon as I logged onto the computer it flickered off again. Forget the computer. Time to build some horses.

Balancing an umbrella with one hand, I carried loads of paper, PVC pipe, tape, and projection equipment from building to building at school, unlocking and relocking doors at each end. My display showing the evolution of the horse now includes 4 lifesized PVC and paper horses. My projection system can be wheeled from horse to horse.

I returned home in the pouring rain, hoping the power would be on. Yes! So I fixed supper and went to cut my laminated timelines of cenozoic time. I glanced outside and saw that the ground was white. Snow?

A blanket of heavy, wet snow coats the world outside. I had no idea that the day's puddles would freeze and be coated with white. Perhaps my earrings were trying to warn me!

65 days down, 300 to go.
