Were it not for the fact that the sun is now setting much further to the left this time of year…
One would think yesterday was a mild summer day around here!
The whole day was absolutely gorgeous!
Hubs cleaned out the chicken coop - while I babysat The Girls out in the yard - so they could enjoy some ranging for a while.
And Dirt Baths - of course!
I just dunno.
We are seeing really strange weather patterns here at the house - unlike any other we’ve seen during all the 10+ years we’ve been living in East Tennessee.
Lately - we’ve been waking up to mornings absorbed with heavy frosts and pockets of some seriously dense fog.
It's beginning to look a whole lot like the pockets of fog you see in The Great Smoky Mountains!
By the time it becomes this dense between our house and The Girls’ house - we can’t see our neighbor’s house.
And he only lives about an acre away!
Yet - you get different views from each window - or each end of either porch.
And the scenery changes by the minute - once the sun begins rising for the day.
Hubs tells me it’s a small phenomenon called Thermal Stratification - ( <-- click on that that! ) - which causes water levels to churn in the lakes and rivers that surround our area.
All I know is - it can make for a bit of interesting entertainment - if you take the time - when you live out in the country - where the animals provide most of your viewing pleasure!
I only hope it doesn’t mean we’re headed for a winter bringing long periods of time with power outages.
Can’t wash clothes with snow.
But I can - and will - find a way to make French Toast with homemade bread - even if the power goes out!
