When technology is king, you judge the impending apocalypse by twitter

Aug 02, 2010



Yesterday all across Western Washington people were coming out of their homes, looking up at the sky and saying things like, “Well, hu. Look-it that strange coloring the sun’s got.” And, “Weird sky today, aint it?” And, “Sure hope an atom bomb didn’t go off somewhere.”


Because that’s the sort of smart-talking fast-thinking people we are.

What’s worse? My reply: “Oh, no, I’m sure it’s not the apocalypse. I went on twitter today. Certainly someone would’ve tweeted about it.”

Then I went on facebook and posted pictures of a vegetable platter.

The world is truly coming to an end. Even if it’s not via atom bomb, our brains are certainly melting.

**Good thing we were so concerned. Apparently the smoke was from some forest fires in BC.

***I actually did learn this from twitter.

***I am not proud of this fact.

****But I do thank Linda and Jeff for the fabulous pictures in which nobody died or had acid rain dumped on them from fall out.


  1. Love the pictures. Some one should make a postcard out of them to say: see, I was here and you weren’t…NeNrNeNr.

  5. Great picture! It shows exactly what you?re talking about. I recently relocated from Mukilteo, after having lived in Washington State for fourteen years, so I can relate to your snapshot. I?m sure I would have been one of the people who would have been looking up at the sky too! Thanks for its reason otherwise one might really overreact to its awesome sight! Why is it that such stunning color strikes possible panic in humans? Let?s hope that it?s good common sense, while taking in its unreal beauty. I?ll always remember Washington State?s beauty.
