I know the title Sun Dogs sounds like some sort of seventies surfer movie but it’s actually the name of am atmospheric phenomenon.
I know because we had the privilege of experiencing one yesterday for over an hour.
This is what the sky looked like. The two ‘suns’ surrounding the sun are what’s known as sun dogs. Allegedly this craziness was caused by Sandy, or so the meteorologists on TV said. They said lots of big words about what caused it but at that point they started sounding like the grown ups on Charlie Brown – which is kinda apropos since it’s Halloween!
Sunday I realized Halloween was in two days and I hadn’t taken the minions to the Pumpkin Patch. I had no choice but to check them out of school:
Which led to this – me having to come up with some sort of excuse as to why they needed to come out.
In the end I chose honesty and wrote ‘Tate Farms, okay!”
We had a blast but it was crazy windy cuz, ya know, Sandy.
I told you it was windy.
My hair was completely out of control.
At one point we thought it might be the apocalypse but, alas, no zombies in sight.
‘Yeah for no zombies!’
