I'm posting just a bit late this morning. For some mysterious reason, my lap top will not connect to the Internet. My Nook and My Guy's desk top computer will connect just fine, but my computer tells me the router isn't working. I'm hoping the live in computer guru can fix it once he gets home from his bike ride. For the moment, I've appropriated the desk top.
Barbara over at Cat Patches has suggested "Where I Live" as today's Foto Finish theme. After a bit of file browsing and consideration, I decided that this image gives a good sense of where I live.
The view is from the east looking west towards downtown (those little bumps in the horizon are some of the taller downtown buildings). The photo dates from February 2011 when we had a record low of -29 F and lots of snow. This view is less than a mile from our house. Out here on the east side of town, it's relatively flat, as most people expect Oklahoma to be. If you go west of town, you'll run into the Osage Hills (that little hump to right of the buildings in the photo). That's not a fun drive when it's been snowing as the roads leading out of town that way are pretty hilly and very curvy. Deep winter and mid summer don't look much different around here, it's pretty brown (unless we have snow on the ground). Spring and Fall can be spectacular, but some years seem to last only a week or two at most.
That's one view of where I live. Take a peak over at Cat Patches to check out some other natural habitats.
