A fog full of frogs. Drizzle fell, then the fog came and remained all night, while the frogs continued to croak. Fog seldom remains for more than an hour or two here, so I was pleased to have it for so long. Naturally, this meant that I was outside much of the night, and got damp. I also got nothing done. Both consequences were well worth it.

The fog has thinned now, but still veils the dawn. The frogs are now silent, but the morning birds are doing their best to provide appropriate musical accompaniment for the gray scene. I don't think they have quite the frogs' knack for it. Croaks more effectively capture the mood than do chirps.

Meantime, I'm downloading a bunch of photos and drawings of Irving Gill's Dodge House, an architectural monument in Hollywood demolished some years ago to make room for a school which was then never built. These particular records are from Built in America, one of the collections at the Library of Congress web site. I'm quite pleased with the very large floor plans available as (surprisingly small) TIFF files. I've only ever seen the small reproductions of the plans typically published in books. Yay Int3rnets (for a change.)

Oh, smell of woodsmoke drifting from morning fires, sound of geese flying. I hope there's more rain today.
