Daylight savings last night, blizzard warnings in the northeast for early this week, wild fires, floods, polar bears without enough snow and ice.... and we are not willing to take responsibility for our part in anything to do with the weather? It shocks me every day that it seems too many Republicans have to deny even the possibility that we are contributing to the warming of the earth. It's like a club membership requirement? Check brain at the door? Science works only when it fits what we'd want to hear? Clean water happens without effort to ensure such a thing? Our newest cabinet secretary, Scott Pruitt, says, (out loud!), that there is considerable disagreement among scientists...." And I ask since when has 2% meant "considerable!" And what about common sense.
Well, actually, we do know for sure that daylight savings has nothing to do with climate change, at least not in clearly measurable ways. (Do we use less electricity over the summer than we would if we didn't put the clocks ahead an hour? or are we using more? Thank goodness there's "spring forward" and "fall backwards", or I'd have to figure out twice a year which way the clocks should go. That is a joke, BTW, but only sort of....)
In the meantime, I continue to be completely thrilled that I had two such good days down at our waterfalls with my camera, and I'm happy there are still these additional photos to share. Next weekend I will be traveling, so there will be some very different photos soon.

|Here I was trying to see what the waterfall sees. This attempt on my part didn't produce a great photo, which is why I'm sharing what my thinking was at the time. Pure curiosity.|
|Photographer friend Lucy says this is a rock covered with club moss. It's located near the base of the big waterfall. Thanks, Lucy, for refreshing my memory for its name.|
