Well, with a busy work week and holiday, I’ve not been able to get back to the Civil War until today. They remembered it yesterday in Vicksburg, however:
It was 150 years ago today that Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant decreed to a war-weary Vicksburg that wouldn’t give up: Let the siege begin.
It’s a challenging goal, but I will try to get the week’s Civil War post completed (it’s about halfway there) today and also next week’s, for automatic publishing tomorrow on Memorial Day, if possible.
The Colossus of Puebla did not take a break over the last few days, either.
Fortunately the time-lapse program was on it except for some time yesterday when I had to go out. There is a week-long movie of it from the Tlamacas cam from last Saturday until yesterday, and a few more good images that I hope to get up in the live-blogging post today, as well.
At the moment, it is having a big explosion.
They are getting into the monsoon season in Mexico, and views of the volcano will be almost completely obscured by clouds soon, until around October.
