Schrödinger's Pussy
Observing a box has never been this much fun

We live on a heavily wooded street. Brian and I have noticed something about a property just a few lots west of ours. Most of the thick stands of trees have a good understory and when you pass by them and look up, you can see dappled light even though it's still relatively dark from shade.

But this one stand of trees is different. There is no understory. And it's spooky dark. Unnaturally dark. Like there's a heavy shadow over the shade. I swear it's even colder right there. Sooooo dark. Always. Even on the brightest of days.

I'm sure it can be explained by a denser leaf cover, but I don't know. I wonder if the area has a history. If I were watching a scary movie, this is the patch of woods that would be haunted or occupied by the mask wearing psycho.

Just saying, but whenever we are on the bike and pass a forest preserve with a lot of trees, its colder, a LOT colder. It's referred to as tree cold. It has to do with the moisture, oxygen.. or so it's been explained to me.

This is a winter photo of our street just past the dark woods.

I do understand "tree cold", but this one area is so much more (cold, dark, dense, ominous) than the other spots on any side o f it. I'm not the first to notice it, it seems out of place for the area. An interesting anomaly!
