Orange : You Glad

This is the part winter, not the holiday and the days still short and the nights still long and the weather is, well….wintery. Time to look for some hope, some gladness, some orange.

Orange, of course, is the New Black.

Right now, in between the snow banks you might find a traffic cone to keep you out of the potholes that have sprung up.Subcat_Black_Base_Cones

Orange is also the color of buoys and lifejackets and lifesavers, which you won’t be seeing much of round here unless you work in a marine shop or travel away from here to someplace warmer.

Orange is also the color of Foul Weather Gear, the kind you wear if you’re in a working boat this time of year so if you do fall in they have half a chance of finding you. (Commercial fishing is so restricted now, I’m not sure if anyone is going out for anything in January these days).

Hunters wear orange. People who have pick-up trucks who don’t necessarily hunt often have some orange, to give them some ‘off-road’ cred.

and Snow shovels.

I have been spend FAR TOO MUCH TIME with snow shovels lately. I just got a new one, that claims to be unbreakable for life. I save the receipt and the outrageous claim label. Will it get through this winter?

There’s more….but this is enough for now.
