Sun Busting Through Stormclouds at NASA

    Prev Next

    I was in the Tweetup tent doing something terribly important but completely inscrutable when Stu Maschwitz came in and told me that the storm clouds were breaking upon our shores. So I got my little rig and went outside to see the matter.

    We get these kind of huge powerful summer clouds in Texas too. The kind that roll in on a too-hot day and you have a feeling that something powerful is a-comin'. You tie down the cows and take the favorite sheep down to the basement because it's gonna be a long night...

    The sun darted in and out of the clouds, and I grabbed it just as it peeked through a small hole it tore in the thunderhead.

      So you're sure that's not an atom bomb going off over NASA? :-)

      I don't know what y'all do down there in Texas but overhere that kind of behaviour gets you in jail ;-)
