A week from today, we’ll be heading over to Ahjumawi Lakes. Checked the weather. It’s beautiful this week. Next week it looks like there are some slight chances of rain. That’s okay. We’ve got rain gear and the daytime temperatures will still be in the 70s. Al bought a tent heater, so we can be warm if it’s too wet for a fire at night. The army surplus guy we talked to yesterday when out shopping for some odds and ends said that it gets pretty cold at night. He’s a canoe guy and knew exactly where we were heading. Said it’s beautiful. Got us even more excited.
What I am really hoping for is a cloudless day for Eclipse Day. I would like to experience the whole eclipse-thing from start to finish. But if not? Well, not much I can do about that one. I can always Google the images.
Speaking of eclipses, I asked my eye doctor last week why you’re not supposed to look at them directly. He told me that it’s not so much the UV exposure but the heat. You can actually fry your retinas. Not a pleasant thought. He told me that even with the special dark eclipse glasses to look, glance away, and look again.
No eyeball boiling, kids!
And with that lovely image burning into your brain, I bid a fond farewell until next time!
