Today's sky report

Yes, this is a sky report. It was beautiful out back this morning as the white dusting on the trees blended with the washed out blue of the rising sun sky. Later, on the way to work the sky rent a cloud bank and appeared as the jagged edge of torn cloth.

Today's sky report

It was a pretty interesting carpool this morning as we had a copy of the Spin Magazine's readers poll with us. It had some serious Fallujah list impact (see For instance, the hotly debated Linkin Park was on the Worst Band list. So maybe they should be added to the Fallujah list (although since I'm controlling the list, they're still not on it). And if Modest Mouse makes the Best Breakout Act list as number one, should it still be on the list? I'm voting yes because they still sound kind of formalities and weeney. Finally, Franz Ferdinand, currently on the Fallujah list, shows up in the poll on the Best Single, Best Breakout Act and Best New Artist lists but also tops the Most Overrated Artist and Most Overplayed Song lists. Tie goes to the loser, they stay on the list.

If you read the above with any kind of concentration, you'll notice that the Fallujah list remains unchanged. Further carpool discussion shall ensue. Here's the list again:

Pearl Jam
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stone Temple Pilot
Alice in Chains
Smashing Pumpkins
Franz Ferdinand
Modest Mouse
Tegan and Sara

The sky is getting brighter in the mornings, to the point where my recently smashed Ray Bans are sorely missed.

Today's sky report

It really was pretty, you know. The sticky white snow covered the trees and the ground and made the world look fresh and white. There was a day (when I worked for a utility) where a site like that would make me tremble with the fear of power outages and long work days, but I'm past that now. I can enjoy the beauty of a snowy day.

Today's Sky Report

I'm thinking that the sky report idea has become too much pressure. I'm beginning to feel guilty when I don't write one, and there are many days when I get too busy, or I forget, or I just have nothing to say. So, although I might still use the same title, the content of whatever sky report I write may have nothing to do with what I see when I look up.

Today, the snowflakes are as big as a snowball. I'm expecting fully grown snowmen to fall from the sky any time now.

Today's sky report

The sky had some high clouds, twisting like cotton. Underneath the New England sky, Patriots fans celebrated.

Today's sky report

Today's sky was cloudy, not unlike my brain after last night's eBrew. Last night's snow created wet and slippery conditions, spraying my windshield like that of a boat as the spray curls off the whitecaps on the ocean. Or something like that.

Today's sky report

It's not often that I would be able to say this here in New England, but the last three days have had very similar skies. Blue, blue and blue.
