The hat is back...

 ... and a new head too. A tiny head... but a head nonetheless:  Yesterday, the head and hat were gone. Two days ago, the full-sized head was there, with the hat, and the overall effect was much more sprightly and exuberant, with the cane flung upward as if dancing like Fred Astaire. Today, with the warmer weather, the snow is sagging, and the snowman, bent over, seems to be using the cane like an old man who needs a cane. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

I finally made it out to see the sunrise once again.

 Had not made it out since February 2. Just too cold! And I only need it to be feels-like 9° to be willing to do it. I've done these sunrise runs since September 2019, and — not counting when we were out of town — I'd only ever missed an occasional day, maybe 2 days once or twice. I think I've missed more days this February than in all the other time combined. Ah, well! I was happy to get out.  [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Snow Again

I woke up one morning to the second snow in Paris this season. Snow is rare in Paris, or at least it used to be but for many reasons I didn’t get out early like I should have done for photos. I had lots of things to do plus a doctor appointment. When I finally got out the sidewalks were slippery and I felt less like exploring. The temperature never got above 30 degrees. Well, blah, blah, blah. Lots of reasons for doing little photography. The view from my window looking down below. I...

Thanks for not breaking our heart.

I set out in the snow to do my sunrise run, and I made it to my vantage point, which looked like this:   No sun to see. 100% overcast. And the snow wasn't stuck to the trees, so no "winter wonderland" effect. Just deep snow on the ground, making the run something of a trudge. But as I approached my vantage point, down along the shore, I saw a man and woman up ahead, and they'd slowed down and were slowing stamping about.  I had to overtake them, and my normal method is to get as far ...

"Orwell never equated technology with progress. On the contrary, he wrote during the war, 'every scientific advance speeds up the trend towards nationalism and dictatorship.'"

"It was in a review of [H.G.] Wells’s scenario for Things to Come that he mocked what he called the author’s false antithesis between the benign scientist and the bellicose reactionary. 'It never occurred to Mr. Wells that his categories might have got mixed, that it might be the reactionary who would make the fullest use of the machine and that the scientist might use his brains chiefly on race-theory and poison gas.' That wasn’t fair at all. The creator of the Invisible Man and Doctor Moreau w...

Snow in Paris!

Snow is pretty rare in Paris. I’ve seen it maybe six times in 20 years, the last time being three years ago. It’s really special to see it. I thought about going somewhere outside my neighborhood to have a look at it but ended up walking around near where I live. The Statue of Liberty didn’t have much on it as you can see. The figures on the bridge have some. There were little snowmen everywhere. They even made a scarf out of a blade of grass on this oe. Here’s another....

I thought I saw a pussycat.

But it was just a cat-sized snowperson. In the bleak sunrise. Open thread. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]
