This photo doesn't do it justice: amazing sky today. Some of the strangest and most awesome clouds I have seen. Constantly changing. Gentle breeze. A few sprinkles. Dramatic, spectacular.
There were many sights, sounds, and smells around downtown Olympia last night!
For example, while walking down the hill I could see a strange cloud wafting over the Westside. It was kind of surreal, ethereal. And although it was dark at 8:30 PM much earlier than it was three months ago, the air stayed relatively warm.
Here are some photos from a walk to and around Capitol Lake (aka FLOD, that is, fetid lake of doom—which it did smell like in places,) and then also a few others from the past week, including Percival Landing, and Coffee Strong—with information about how to support Wikileaks whistleblower Bradley Manning, plus a letter to Governor Gregoire about why it is incorrect to cut social services and supports during a time of great need.
Have a great week!
