The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

Weather, what weather???

Patience? HA! Nothing happened! I knew it would miss us. It always seems to... much to my dismay. No supercells, no tornados, not even any thunder and lightning... We have had nothing but a persistent, dreary rain. No severe weather. Nothing... Looks like some residual storms are passing just to the south of us now...

The surprising thing to me is that there was some flooding in the roads today. Have the public works folks not had adequate time to prepare for this by cleaning out the sewer drains? It's not as if we've had so much rain that it's full, they just neglected to clean the drains of leaves and debris. Flooding...with rain levels from a tenth to a quarter of an inch. Ridiculous!!!

I think I took this picture back in June. It's a really phenomenal storm moving in from the east behind my house.

I am going to need to get some new windshield wipers before my road trip this weekend. The forecast calls for rain , wouldn't you know it, on Friday and Sunday (my traveling days). Boy, do I hate driving long distances in the rain! It wears me out, as if the drive itself doesn't do that... The weekend will make it all worth it though.



  1. "patience"... as in waiting for as long as it takes for the right conditions to appear...Out of 50 storm fronts that pass though, only 3 might yield the weather you seek.
    This is what weeds out the real from the wannbees....Patience...

  2. I can wait as long as it takes... It's just frustrating to see it coming and have it all dissolve right before your eyes.

    I am definitely NOT a wannabe. I am as real as it gets.

  3. Then your patience shall be rewarded then...Good luck in your pursuit.

  4. Thanks, for the reminder and the encouragement. Patience has never been a talent of mine, but I'm working on it.

    I can only assume that you're after the same thing, so I guess good luck to you, as well, from one weather freak to another.
