August has kicked off with more of those crepuscular ray evenings.
I notice that one of the colloquial names for this phenomenon is 'Jacob's Ladder', which is coincidentally the name of a track by Rush, a Canadian rock band, whose music is often entwined with happenings at Tense Towers*.
'Jacob's Ladder' is featured on their Permanent Waves album, along with 'Natural Sciences' which popped up in the Comments section of a recent blogpost, thanks to some prompting by fellow blogger Mark.
Lyrics for Jacob's Ladder.
* Most evenings, just after ten past nine, do you notice that it's 2112? No? Just me, then.
