Waterbury (Waterville section), Connecticut


I think it's interesting that the plaque doesn't specify how the dedicated men and women of Waterville served their country in time of need. A nice general-purpose memorial.

Vivid Green Moss

Washington, Connecticut

We've been having some miserable weather recently here in Western Connecticut—lots of rain with temperatures just high enough to avoid snow. I find these conditions much more uncomfortable than solidly sub-freezing temperatures, though at least there's no snow to shovel. On a walk around Steep Rock Preserve yesterday I found several spots where rocks and trees were covered in the most extraordinary vivid green moss. I guess something likes this cold wet weather.

Former Post Office

Naugatuck, Connecticut

Over the years I've noticed there have been a series of false starts at repurposing the building, but nothing seems to get all the way to opening. The giant lamps are impressive on a gloomy overcast day.

November 25th and the afternoon light is very wintry even when it's not completely overcast.
