こんにちは. How’s it going?

Today’s photo is of the sunset and clouds that I enjoyed as I drove back to Austin from Houston. Often when I make this drive, it’s already dark, but today I left a little earlier which worked out nicely! I even set up the GoPro to take this “TimeWarp” video:

I hope you had a nice day! またね~

Texas Sunset Snapshot at the HEB

Today’s photo is a snapshot of a very common sight (at least for me). It’s a sunset from the HEB parking lot. I guess it’s just timing and the really cool clouds we have in Texas, but I get a ton of these shots. I’m very happy about this. 😀

Speaking of HEB (technically H-E-B), I think its near legendary status in the Twitterverse is rightly earned. When I first moved to Texas 20 years ago, I would have said… nah. But now when I travel back to Los Angeles and visit a Ralphs or Vons… wow, those supermarkets just cannot compare to HEB. Not only are HEBs bright, clean, usually with wide aisles, and renovated regularly, but their own brands of food are awesome, especially the Mi Comida line. My HEB has so many Mexican cheeses that are unfamiliar to me, but are all great. And the HEB “Creamy Creations” ice creams are generally awesome.

They also have a reputation of being a good employer, and their community outreach programs are also well-regarded, like their relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of these factors, I’ve definitely joined the legions of HEB fans!

Normally I’d think this afternoon’s clouds look like waves rolling in, but I’m craving BBQ a bit, so they look more like a rack of babyback ribs. 😂

We were treated to some beautiful clouds plus nice contrails this evening. They even look good captured with my phone camera. 😀

Does it looks like a phoenix or dragon flying?
