Denver Bomb Cyclone time lapse

Today, we experienced a bomb cyclone. It's when the air pressure drops 24 millibars in a 24 hour period. We basically lived through a Category 1 hurricane, but with snow instead of rain. We were stuck in our rental all day so I decided to take a photo of our yard every hour.

Eating the Globe: Costa Rica

It has been a while since I conquered another country.

While making my coffee, I considered Drinking the Globe instead, as I can probably check off another ten or twenty countries by drinking their coffees, beers, wines, and liqueurs. It's my game, I can make up my own rules.

But instead, for now, I am sticking with food. I went on Amazon and found these Costa Rican cookies.

They were very dry.

My friend came back from Vladivostok and gave the boy a red egg. Inside was a cool Made In China bus.
