There was thick fog blanketing the area this morning, so I grabbed my camera on the way out the door as I herded my kids to the bus stop. What I discovered along the way was that fog makes spider webs stand out. And once I noticed that I started looking for them, which led to finding them in surprising places. Like the power lines. I had never noticed it before but the power lines are loaded with gigantic webs. Apparently spiders are after electricians, not bugs.
I took a bunch of great shots but this one is probably my favorite.
We had a bit of a mystery this morning. Upon returning from church this morning, my wife and kids found this in the backyard.
Needless to say, they were perplexed. It's not as if we'd ordered a mismatched set of filthy used refrigerators. I'm not even sure where you would go for that sort of thing. My wife woke me up to share this discovery with me and after some debate we decided to call the police about it.
The police were highly amused. After a bit of chuckling the deputy sheriff did some investigating and actually solved this mystery quite quickly. These fridges were not meant for us. One of our neighbors runs a business renting dumpsters and hauling junk away. The offending units were intended for his yard. He presumably will be selling them for scrap metal, which is a surprisingly lucrative activity.
So, they're still back there, awaiting our neighbor to return from where ever he is and retrieve them. But on the bright side, this little mystery appeared to have brightened the day of the officer who came to deal with it. He got a good laugh out of it and said it was the fastest he ever solved a crime.
