Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Nestled in the beautiful high mountains of New Mexico, where the skies are often clear and cloud sightings are rare, something peculiar catches the eye—contrails. These thin white lines trailing behind jets paint a picture against the usually pristine backdrop.
Have you ever noticed at a jet soaring across the sky and wondered about the streak it left behind? Those lines are known as contrails, a shortened term for condensation trails. Contrails are a phenomenon born from the combination of high-altitude flight and specific atmospheric conditions. As jets cut through the air, the water vapor they release condenses into visible ice crystals, forming these wispy trails that we see. A lone jet may leave behind a solitary trail, or criss-cross the sky with these lines.
But these lines spark discussions about their environmental implications. Some argue that the persistent contrails contribute to the formation of high-altitude clouds, affecting local weather patterns and even contributing to global warming. Or that the planes are releasing a chemical cocktail. What do you think?
I've got the vacation blues and am ready to set sail.
Unfortunately, the timing is still off for me. Are you traveling now or waiting on the "covid situation" to improve. It seems like some destinations are opening up while other close back down! And as much as I like to cruise, being stuck on a ship for weeks on end in port doesn't sound appealing at all, so I guess I will wait for the time being.
Currently, I am looking at booking a trip in April or May 2022 (which seems too far away!) I picked up this book to pass the time. Have you read it?

Today the Yucca plants in my backyard are bursting into full bloom, signalling the unmistakable change in weather. Not familiar with a Yucca plant?
"Yucca is a remarkable genus of perennial shrubs and trees, belongs to the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae. With 40–50 common species, these resilient plants are native to the Americas and the Caribbean, thriving in diverse habitats ranging from humid rainforests and wet subtropical ecosystems to hot and dry deserts and savannah's." (thanks, Wiki, for the botanical wisdom!)
The tap root of a Yucca, extending at least 3 feet deep, anchors them securely in the ground, making them incredibly tough and durable. Some might consider them pests, but for me, they are more of natures beauty. Standing tall, these soldiers defiantly face storms, droughts, and even snow, showcasing their unwavering strength. Their ability to weather the toughest conditions is a testament to their resilience. As the spikes of fragrant flowers burst forward, it's like nature's way of reminding us not to give up, to stand strong in the face of challenges and celebrate every win.
Nature truly has a way of inspiring us in the most unexpected places..
