"FEELS" HAS BEEN A LEGIT TERM SINCE AT LEAST 1782:
— The Duchess, by Amanda Foreman.
Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, really wrote a real letter to her mother complaining about the feels in 1782.
I love everything.
Animal encounters often come in clusters — one month there are deer bounding constantly through the woods, another month brings several badger sightings in a row or the frog population exploding in the pond or hedgehogs appearing under every hedge…
A beautiful post from Terri Windling on the ponies of Dartmoor.
An ice circle (also called ice disc or ice pan) occurs in slow moving water in cold climates. It is thought that ice circles are formed when surface ice gathers in the center of a body of water rather than the edges. A slow moving river current can create a slow turning eddy, which rotates, forming an ice disc. Very slowly the edges are ground down until a gap is formed between the eddy and the surrounding ice.
The gif is from Evan Gregg’s capture of a ice circle in England on January 26th 2013.
