Side benefits

Some people work in offices and make lots of money. Others work outside, oblivious to the world going on around them. A fortunate few, myself included, get to work in many different environments, an appreciate them all.

A week or so ago, at the end of the day, I was carrying my tool bag back to the truck and was surprised to see this view:

The picture really does not do justice. A much wider view is required to get the full effect.  It looked like the sky was on fire, something out of a science fiction movie.

Then again, yesterday, I spent the day in a dank, smelly basement tracing out telephone wires.  In the end, it all evens out.
