I foresee a certain person fishing off this pier in the near future. We actually passed a man and his son who said they sometimes catch stripers.

For years I’ve been lucky enough to live in a Victorian house that has a window with old glass producing a rippled view if you stand in just the right place. I’ve watched the seasons change through this window. This is Spring … or at least Spring in my neighborhood … lots of branches with buds waiting to open. Today’s downpour is probably something the trees and shrubs need though I would have preferred a bit more sunshine. I’ll keep my camera handy for when the blooms burst forth.

… vortex shedding in action. Ahem. In fluid dynamics, vortex shedding is an oscillating flow that takes place when a fluid, in this case water droplets from an humidifier, flows past a bluff body, which in this case I think are the leaves of the plants I have surrounding the humidifier. Hmmm. Anyway, when you’re stuck inside with a plasma physicist … well, I’ve learned that there are things I see as beautiful … and he does too … but he’s seeing something completely different from what I’m seeing and so I have learned when I see some cool effect to drag him away from whatever he is doing, point at my cool thing and ask, “So what’s happening here?” And in this case, he said matter of factly, “Oh, I think that’s vortex shedding. See the vortices forming there …oh, and over there …!”

And so it goes in our household at the moment. 🙂
