The POET Ethanol plant located in Hanlontown, IA, Connie’s home town, decorates this tree along Highway 9 and it has become a local attraction. We drove to see it tonight and got there as the sun was setting. It is spectacular! I’ve only seen pictures of it and no picture does it justice. It is breathtaking!
This year it was all restrung with new LED lights – I just loved it!!!
The Christmas star was also very visible to my amateur eye – very bright with rings showing to the upper right side – I was driving while seeing it so hope that’s about right.
I can’t help but think of the pastor who married us, Darrell Weber, who was so interested in astronomy! I’ll bet he’s watching this event closely from his own telescope.
I played for a funeral this morning of a beloved man in our church – everybody called him one of their best friends and he gave candy to everybody. He always gave my mom Hershey bars and then Becky and me, too, along with anybody else he knew! We’re all going to miss you, Al DeWitt!
