I've Said It Before And I'll Say It Again, Oklahoma Is Like A Different Planet To Me - Not That I'm Complaining, Of Course!
Day 500 of the 5 year mission to the planet, Oklahoma. As often happens when the planet is nearest its Sun, (what in the West we would call Summer, but seems too tame a term for this oven-like heat), the atmosphere, while still breathable, is of a soup like consistency. This picture shows the incomprehensible and illogical rain, that by afternoon has turned to steam as the sun beats on the deck at the back of our dwelling. Is it this alien weather that produces the flavors of the "fruits" if you will, (for the taste is so sublime as to not even resemble the fruits of other regions), that just yesterday I was baking into cobbler?
