This weekend winter finally moved in with a big bang (for the south). We had a storm and temperatures dropped like thirty degrees in one day. We stayed at the house and watched Planet Earth, an 11-part series about our planet, filmed over a 5-year period in 200 different locations. We watched all five disks.
For anyone who hasn’t watched this series, it’s absolutely fantastic. I highly suggest you buy it, or rent it, or catch reruns on the Discovery channel. Just don’t get too attached to any of the animals you see. For every animal they show that makes you go “Awww, how cute!” there’s a predator that jumps out and snaps it’s neck, or devours it in one gulp. As beautiful and educational as this show may be, I realized within twenty minutes into it this is basically an animal snuff film in HD.1 Comment
