Fall Has Fallen

We had a frost warning. Ragnarok approaches.

Because of some strangeness with recent power outages, I signed up for severe weather alerts and school closings to come to my phone via text message. When I woke up this morning, I saw a frost alert for 2:00 am through 9:00 am sent to my phone at 4:45 am.

Perhaps it would have been more effective if sent earlier?

We had our first frost here last night.

I'm so proud of myself that I know, now, what Ragnarok is. Also that I can applaud you on your use of Solar myth.

When I was a kid, I was always a bit freaked out by Ragnarok, because the Norse seemed to be OK with the idea that they knew exactly how the end of the universe would play out. I guess I didn't get exposed to the book of Revelation in my churchgoing days.

I forgot to turn down the volume on my cell, and heard the frost warning come in at 3 am.
