Happy (white???) Halloween!

I've heard of an occasional white Thanksgiving or even a white Easter, but snow on the ground in October in almost unheard of in this part of the country. Whatever the underlying cause of the very unusual cold front that hit us by surprise over the weeked, it did at least provide some unique photo opportunities. I was inadequately clothed on Saturday morning, shivering outside while helping with the Augusta Bird Club seed sale pickup and delivery. But after the sun came out on afternoon, I took advantage by taking pictures of the rare combination of peak fall foliage colors and snow together.

Fall colors, snow

A woodsy area consisting mostly of oak and pine trees just north of Staunton, October 29, 2011.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
