When I saw this on FB I wanted to save it, because what a week it has been. Actually, less than a week from the eclipse to the hurricane. Wild!

I hope anyone in Hurricane Harvey’s path is staying safe.

When we looked at the sky on Monday, we thought we might see a bit of the eclipse. We were supposed to have about 75 percent of it here. But, the day was overcast and the clouds were pretty thick. We took a photo, but there was just a bright spot in amongst a bunch of clouds. We have since had some rain, with thunder and lightning, but not from the hurricane. We’re a bit too far north to get any effects from it. Now, we do get some of the outflow from hurricanes, when they are on the west side of Mexico. They usually bring a lot of rain to us here.

When we were in south Texas, close to Corpus Christi, there was one predicted to hit, but it changed directions or something. Everyone was getting prepared beforehand, though, just in case.

When we were in south Texas, too, there was an eclipse. We were on the edge of totality, I think. This was 1984, if I remember. That time everything got pretty dark that mid morning, and the streetlights came on. It looked very eerie.

When we were in Japan, we were in a Catagory 5 Typhoon. That was Typhoon Tip. We had trees blown down, and lots of rain.

When extreme weather is happening anywhere, I really am interested in it all. I think that is because of the F5 Tornado I was in here, in 1970.

When I looked out the back door just now, I see that it is pouring down rain!

ONE LINER WEDNESDAY – DID I JUST HEAR THAT?

Standard

ONE LINER WEDNESDAY – DID I JUST HEAR THAT?

“The sun is being regurgitated.”

“The clouds will start to coagulate…”

“…wear your rain sufficient dressing…”

I’m lumping these one liners together, because they all came from television weather newscasters in the last couple of days. What they said really made us do a double-take, and ask, “Did I just hear that?” We had to laugh!

On viewing the eclipse, one national weather news person remarked, “The sun is being regurgitated.” This was after totality, and the sun became visible again.

Our local weather person, just ad-libbing during the weather report, said the following on two different days. “The clouds will start to coagulate together to bring us rain.” and “Make sure you wear your rain sufficient dressing today.”

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 12/17

Today’s prompt word for SOCS is ‘guess’. To join in, and also see other entries, click the above link.

***

Guess what? I don’t know what to write about, today.

Guess what? It is pouring down rain, at the moment. It wasn’t a few minuets ago, when I went out to feed the cats. Maybe they got a bite or two before it started raining.

Guess what? Family from out of state are here visiting.

Guess what? Whatever we find to do today, it will be done in the rain…unless it stops raining.

Guess what? I’ve already had my morning coffee, and now I’m drinking iced tea.

Guess what? I probably should go get something on besides my pjs, in case we find something to do, or somewhere to go…in the rain.

Guess what? I wish you all a lovely day! 🙂

We had a weird week, so it was good for taking some odd-ball photos.

First, we saw some cows, close up! Then, we were almost home, and had a tire blow-out. Turns out there were 2 of them, one on each side. Finally got them fixed.

Last evening we had a much needed downpour of rain, and some hail. The rain running down on the glass storm door made for some interesting effects.

Then, for fun, I was trying to make shadows on the wall. Looks kinda creepy! 🙂

Weekly Weather: Rain

***

Today’s topic is Rain. Guess it was a good time for it, as it has started to rain here today. The first 3 photos I took looking out my back door, the kitchen window, with my plant, and another of the back storm door. You can see rain droplets on there, along with some fun stickers my grand-son put on the glass. 🙂 The last one was from a while back, when we had very heavy rain. Our yard and street flooded. It looks like a brown river flowing down the street in front of the house.  All these were taken on my iphone.
