Friday Cemetery Blogging

This photo is of probably the two most famous graves I have photographed so far. The graves are located behind the General Store in Lincoln, New Mexico.

They are the gravesites of John Tunstall and Alexander McSween.
If anybody explores the site long enough to find out why the El Paso Police Deparment is keeping a photo of Tunstall on their special projects division website, let me know.
I also loaded this photo of rain clouds that I took the same day as the grave photo. I just wanted to remember what rain clouds look like. Yesterday was day 98 without rain. Posted by Picasa

Last night, it rained.

Those clouds are can FEEL the weight of the water waiting to fall.
Bitterly cold here today, but no snow, and not alot of rain in the past few months either.
I keep meaning to photograph a particular monument in our churchyard for you,- will really try to get around to it soon.

Rain. Ah. That's great. and 98? That's hot for this time of year, ain't it? Even fer Texas?

Well. Yes. That would be very hot for this time of year. It is 98 days since our last rain. The temp is around 75 most days. Still awfully warm for January and February!

Hallelujah! We've had about 10 inches of rain in the last month.

If we were having a *normal* January, that would be 10 feet of snow.

You photos, as always, are beautiful.
