January raindrops

January raindrops 

Today we are supposed to hit a record-high temperature of around sixty degrees.  Heavy fog during the night and early morning gave way to rush-hour rain.  By the time I took this photo, right before teaching my first class of the day, the rain had stopped, leaving beads of water speckling the window of our department office.

Although I can’t make the picture any bigger on this page, if you click on the photo itself, you can enlarge it to see the droplets in clearer detail.

In typical Wisconsin fashion, today’s predicted high of 60˚ will be followed by Friday’s predicted low of −2˚.

  1. This is so cool! I love the angle of the picture as well!


    • Thank you, Karen! I don’t know where that “lean” came from. I was trying to line up my iTouch with the vertical line of our window, and you can see that the right edge of the photo aligns vertically with the right side of the tall building. Maybe the iPod’s lens is so short and wide that it distorts the edges, although I’d never really noticed it before.

    Here’s a blast from your past! Your mom told me to look up your blog when I was in the library last night. I’ve enjoyed reading your thoughts! Quite interesting stuff, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from a gal that use to spend her afterschool time on Memorial Field with two of her good buddies! I even learned a few things about dashes and hyphens!
    Hope to hear from you soon.


    • Oh my goodness, I haven’t thought about Memorial Field in a long time! Those were happy, happy days. I’m sending you an email, although you’ll probably get it later this afternoon . . . because since we have a lot to catch up on, it’ll be a long message!
