This photo was taken looking towards Roundtop after I'd driven off the mountain. A smaller hill blocks the view of the bottom of Roundtop. The crop is corn, and this year it is well above the "knee-high by the 4th of July" that's supposed to be the normal gauge of how the crop is progressing. The odd looking thing on the right middle of the photo is a power line tower that cuts across the lower hill.

This morning when I was outside walking the dogs I suddenly had a moment of panic. Was I late? Had I set my alarm improperly? It felt like mid-morning, not just after 6 a.m. I didn’t have my watch on so I couldn’t check it. I hurried Dog along and started back towards the cabin and then it hit me. I wasn’t late. The sun was out! After 2 weeks of rain, gloom, clouds, fog and haze, the sun was finally out, and this is how 6 a.m. on a July morning is supposed to look! Whew! I’d forgotten. Maybe things will finally start to dry out. At this point, I think even my mold has mold.

Seems the corn grew fast here too. Shot up out of the ground in the blink of an eye.
