What Happens When You Are Stuck in the Car.

This blog post requires a little explanation.  My daughter's key would not work in the door lock. We had to sit in my car until her husband got home because it was very chilly.
The 2 year old was obviously bored.  He used his sleeping brother's head and stomach as a step stool to the back window, thereby waking him up for company in a very boring situation.
I'm sorry, I laughed.

Strange Glow in the Sky

The white circles are rain drops.  I am sure there was a fire a mile or two away that made this glow. It was eerie.

Checking another approach
Backing up on it.

This went on for almost 30 minutes.
