Skywatch Friday – Santa is Almost Here Edition

Another front porch skywatch photo. I went artsy here by crouching behind our shrubs with some Christmas lights on them. As old as I am crouching down of any kind might be termed as “suffering for my art.”

Kodi the Pom puppy is who I blame for not getting out and taking more pictures. Having a new puppy is kind of like having a kid. They demand constant attention! If we don’t give him positive attention by playing with him, then he gets negative attention by chewing on electrical cords. We’re exhausted!

Another front porch skywatch shot!

My wife bought Kodi a couple of Christmas outfits. He is not a fan but we thought he rocked this elf outfit.

This time I stood on my front porch and pointed the phone to the southeast instead of the southwest like the previous two photos.


I was able to head out to the Arkansas River trails and check on construction of the new pedestrian bridge. It’s looking good but it won’t be done until well into 2023.


And I checked on the PSO power plant across the river. I love stuff like this.

Oklahoma Christmas

To those who celebrate Christmas I wish you a Merry Christmas, Oklahoma style. To everyone else, I send you greetings and well wishes.

    An awesome sky in your first view:) Here is TX your doggie could use some covering, because as I’m writing this it’s below zero! The warning was for a freezing storm this weekend -at Home Depot they had a huge stack of coverings for waterlines – Yet nothing can prevent us for having a joyful Christmas!

    Merry Christmas, Alan! I love the sky photo with the Christmas lights, and I chuckled when you said you had to take that photo for art’s sake.. I do relate! 🙂 Enjoy the holidays!
