with the long commute i had an hour less than yesterday.
but i only got one mile less.
so it felt like a success.
at least an improvement.
i know the night was amazing.
i never saw so many meteor trails.
they came from every direction.
some dazzling bright
one that appeared to be sizzling
and one that left a smoke trail.
the show lasted until it was fully light.
maybe i would’ve done better if i weren’t craning my neck so much,
but i had to match ariella’s count!
if she hadn’t seen the smoke trail
looking after the meteor had flared
i would have thought it was imaginary.
after daylight we found that remote nebraska had arrived.
we walked hours without seeing a house.
just sand hills and cattle…
and maybe a badger hole.
ariella would not go in to check
and me and vincente are too big
so now we will never know for sure.
ended only 3 miles from valentine
and word is it gets really remote after valentine.
that ought to be something!
