I cannot say that at fifty-three degrees it is winter, though the weather man is telling me – just wait a while.

And then promises me cold.

From the local news feed:

WICHITA, Kan. –

“It’s been a weird day!” Freddy Fernandez says.

The weirdness began Tuesday morning when the pond outside his Wichita house took on a pinkish color.  Within a few hours, it had turned blood red.

Fernandez says the pond is full of fish, and there’s no indication any have died because of this.  There’s also no odor.

Fernandez took a photo last week of the pond when it was frozen-over.  At that time, an unusual pink pattern had formed in the ice.

“I just don’t want any zombies  coming out of there!” he says.

In spite of my efforts to avoid all things current fad, zombies yet.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
