Green Hills Park

A hill is an unusual thing in Raleigh.  These "green hills" are manmade.  They cover a huge landfill.  The hills are dotted with these valves to control the methane release.
Landfills are more than just trash heaps, (see here).

Incoming weather

The clouds moved in, the wind whipped up, and the sun disappeared as the weather moved in.

How many deer do you see?

I counted three when I took this picture.  After I got it on the computer screen, I saw the fourth.   Do you see it?

Buttermilk Sky


I've always called these clouds a buttermilk sky.  Another name is a Mackerel sky.  I get the curdled buttermilk, but naming it after a fish?
(see here) (or here for the hit song, or here or here)  
I don't think a song about a Mackerel sky would go very far.
