The Three Sisters Sitting in The Tree

Wheat Ridge, Colorado
November 23, 2021 8:49am CST
I managed to somehow get this hard won photo last evening. At that time, my phone was playing up like mad. Somehow it got locked and I was furiously trying to unlock it to snap a photo. Though it is a bit shaky this one and not on the right settings I wanted, it will do. You can see clearly the lovely 3 Sisters Stars, as they are called. Had you ever had your phone locked by accident? I thought it had gotten hacked, but no, it was my own mistake that I later figured out somehow.

When I hear "Three Sisters" I think of the coal-fired power plant a mile down at the end of my street when I was a kid. It had LAKEVIEW in big light turquoise letters across the top of the main building. Then they added a fourth chimney sometime after we moved, so it was referred to as the Four Sisters. Then there was the war on acid rain in the 80s and by the early 2000s it was decomissioned and imploded it in 2006. THEY BLOWED UP MY LANDMARK!

I don't think so, but one time I got some kind of vocal menu locked on there. That was weird. Even a restart wouldn't fix it. I had to call my carrier.

You took a really good photo. Funny how they are just in a perfect line as if they were in the tree. This morning it is clear and bright, and I finally caught a glimpse of the not so full anymore moon.
