For centuries, full moons have been given specific names by various cultures and civilizations from around the world. These special moon names helped people keep track of the seasons and were often inspired by nature and agriculture.
Since the heaviest snow usually falls during the month of February, Native American tribes of the north and east most often called this month’s full moon the Full Snow Moon.
The moon controls tides and people too! My bother was a policeman in Utah and he said that most cities beef up the police force on the night of the full moon.
Today is no exception!
I was sitting at my desk this morning when all of us heard the screech of tires and the sickening sound of crunching metal. I work on the 7th floor of a building in downtown Dallas. We ran to the windows to witness the accident that had just happened below us. I guess someone trying to run a red light t-boned another car and that car knocked down the turn signal pole.
Then a few hours later, we hear the same thing again! And almost in the exact spot. By then the day was already in crazy mode. Weird and unusual requests from clients. Coworkers in very unusual moods and just random things happening.
In the evening I went to pick up the bike from the REI shop (the last crash messed up the derailleur, again). And I saw more emergency vehicles than usual out on the roads. Weird people were out on the streets.
Just as I'm writing this I hear police sirens in my usually quiet neighborhood!
Where ever the evening finds you, be a bit crazy if you want to, but be safe!
Happy weekend y'all!
