(Not Even Sort of) Wordless Wednesday: Storm Glass Fun

Those crystals apparently mean thunderstorms are coming. Or maybe just that the storm glass is in the bathroom. (Photo: Shala Howell)

Two days ago, I moved the storm glass into the master bathroom in preparation for the battery of tests we’re going to subject it to over the weekend. (I wanted the glass to have a couple of days to acclimate to its new environment before we starting changing things up around it.)

This morning I noticed that crystals had formed at the top of the glass. I’ve never seen that before. In theory, that means thunderstorms are headed our way. There’s nothing in the forecast about thunderstorms for the next couple of days, but the Weather Channel has betrayed me once or twice before. Guess we’ll see who’s right.

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
