Headlamp Time

I left work at 6:15 last night and headed to Blanchard to jog a slow seven. It was dusk by the time I hit the parking lot, 6:35, and all dark by the time I finished, just short of 8. My first real after-work headlamp run of the year! On the way out, I spotlighted an owl, a great horned owl I think b/c of the tufts ("Bubo virginianus"--what a sorry latin name).....and chased it a quarter mile down the road, from tree to tree. Fifty-five degrees this morning, an extra blanket last night--summer is on the outs and here comes fall!
