Seems like the world was still here, when I awoke.. But, it's very overcast.

That might be a sign of the 'End of Daze'??




So, here's the picture I wanted to take.. Showing the long shadows.
Just have to settle for an old pic..

Jethro beat me to it!

Good news for us northern hemispherians, condolences to our friends in the south.

No shadows at all here on the Wet Coast again to confirm, but that's pretty normal for this time of year.

Cheer up! It's only 10 AM PST, which would make it noon in the Yucatan, so we've got a whole 12 hours left before the Mayan calendar runs out on us :-)

...the Mayans probably "forgot" about 'Leap Years' which, obviously, throws their "End-of-Daze" calculation OFF...(wink,wink)

You know, I walked back from the corner gas station at 06 in t-shirt and shorts. I did not like that it was dark, but I enjoyed the temperature. In the summer, I cannot avoid running the AC at night!
