Life on a little urban homestead in the making, with ideas for self-sufficiency, food preservation, thrifting,
cookery, organic gardening, crafts, DIYing, vintage stuff, and more...

Fog and Inversion, The Kestrel's Back, Dark Days Meal, Blogger Glitch- Faded A's?

Looking down into Boise, from Bogus Basin ski area

Fog and Inversion-
It's been a busy week, sorry for not posting more. I hate this time of year. We get an inversion over the valley, with bad air and fog. It's sunny up in the foothills, oh joy! A couple of weeks ago we had a 44 car pileup due to unusually dense, rolling fog on the freeway Multiple Crashes Police indicated citations would be given for texting, tailgating, and speeding in bad conditions. Really? You have to wonder.... There's a man who survived the crash in his Subaru Outback, amazing. Yes, that's a car next to the log truck-

Not much car left, but he was in there, laid across the front seat, WOW!

The freeway was closed for hours

The Kestrel's Back-
I went out this morning (off work today) to give the girls a treat, and found this-

Looks like he got a ground dove early this morning. Ew...


Dark Days Meal-
Yesterday I took a bag of home-grown, frozen plum tomatoes out of the freezer. I made a nice batch of hearty pasta sauce with mushrooms and sausage. I used homegrown herbs too. Along with the local artisan bread (found at the Grocery Outlet), we had a feast! I used this pasta, great for a heavier sauce-

Sorry, no pics of the sauce


Blogger Glitch- Faded A's?
I have no idea why all the A's in the text seem to be faded! Working on it... If you know, please let me know!

UPDATE- I fixed the faded A's, for some reason it was because it was BOLD. Go figure!

Nasty wreck. I've seen some people walk away from crashes at air fields that seem impossible to have survived. You'd think people who survived such a thing would take it easy afterwards, but in my experience they don't.

We are having the cold dank frozen fog here today after weeks of sun - we are spoiled! But what we need is snow and soon - it looks to be a very long fire season this year.

We need more snow too, at least in the foothills and above...

That wreck looks like the ones we get here with the bad dust storms. It's amazing that the guy survived in that car!
Your pasta dish sounds yummy, I may need to make some pasta tomorrow. :)

Yes, I love my Subaru! I fixed the faded A's, for some reason it was because it was BOLD. Go figure!

We do not really have rough winters here in NC and still I am not a fan of this time of year. That wreck looks awful! Hang in there spring will be here eventually!
