Sometimes, clouds are the most interesting sights on a flight.
During lunch, I have been biking over to inspect the construction on Brookwood Parkway and NW Huffman Street.1 There is a new industrial park going in north of Huffman and Brookwood is being widened to include more lanes, bike lanes, and sidewalks. Just this week, all the trees along the sides and in the median were removed.
This pole at the east end of Huffman attracted my attention. More specifically, the weights on the right side that direct the connections between the lines. I don’t think I’ve seen weights used like this before, so I will start looking for other poles using them.2
Bicycling home from work this evening, I watched the clouds over my shoulder. At the old oak tree across from the airport, I stopped to take a picture.
While I rode along Veteran’s Drive,1 I noticed low clouds blowing by the moon. I stopped to take a few pictures, waiting for gaps in the clouds.
While gazing at the moon, I remembered good days for NASA. And I was thankful there was no loss of life in today’s Antares explosion on launch.
Apparently, sending stuff to space is still rocket science.
