What colors do you see? Repeat Saturday

What colors do you see?

In the movie Pearl Earring the artist Vermeer asked his maid who was modeling for him. “Look at the clouds what colors do you see?”
She replied “white” he told her to squint and look again. She saw many colors then.
What colors do you see when you look at the Snow?

USCG Pendant Gloucester, Ma In Warmer Times

 USCG Pendant Update

Tuesday the Coast Guard Cutter ‪#‎Pendant‬ started flooding due to a breached hull from all her thick ice-breaking. The crew quickly did damage control, and stopped the leak.

The Massachusetts State Police provided divers to get her back out to sea with less than 24 hours lost. BZ Pendant Crew and Mass State Troopers!

The Pendant was commissioned in August 1963. ‪#‎opRENEW‬
