Thanks to hosts: Klaus Sandy Sylvia Wren Louise Fishing Guy
This is a shot from our recent anniversary trip to South Carolina. Specifically, it was taken on Charleston's Waterfront Park Pier, while we were out looking at the bay there. There were people everywhere. All of the swings were taken. Kids were actually playing in the water fountain (BRR!). It was so much fun. My wonderful groom derives pleasure from messing with the minds of animals, whether he's teasing them with feeding gestures (without offering any food) or trying to mimic their mating calls, he's always doing something. Here, he is throwing fake food in the air as the gulls swoop down in a fury. He's such a meanie. What struck me was the amazing sky. It was an intense blue sky that day, with a dusting of mare's tail cirrus clouds whipping up the sky.It was the perfect day for sightseeing there in Charleston. I absolutely love spring, the severe weather, the flowers (not a fan of the pollen, but the colors and the fragrance), the mild temperatures, the smell of a spring rain on the asphalt, and all the wonderful new life that pops up. My wonderful groom was working in the yard some yesterday afternoon, and he sent us these two shots from our yard.Too cool.
As I mentioned, spring means severe weather, and as I mentioned yesterday, things are lining up for approaching severe weather, today, tomorrow, Saturday. We expect to see it today in the plains, and the threat creeps eastward as the days progress into the weekend, with Sunday being our day if the activity preceding hasn't sucked the system dry and stabilized everything. For now, the Georgia members of the Southern Weather Brigade are pursuing a chasetunity on Sunday, the last hoorah for Meso Mike, PCSing in early May to Korea with a follow on to Italia. That said, we really don't need the Dewvoid to erode our plans and void Mike of his last US chase for many years to come. You know?That's right folks, they are presenting a day 4 activity area, and I am smack dab in the middle of it!!!
SEVERE WEATHER FOCUS IS ON THE MIDDLE AND SRN ATLANTIC COAST/SOUTHEAST U.S. DAY 4 /SUN. APR. 25/.VERY STRONG FLOW ALOFT IS FORECAST TO REMAIN ATOP THE WARM SECTOR...PROVIDING SHEAR FAVORABLE FOR SUPERCELLS. THIS COMBINED WITH A MOIST ENVIRONMENT DESTABILIZING THROUGH THE AFTERNOON APPEARS SUPPORTIVE OF THE POTENTIAL FOR WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER ACROSS THIS AREA.It's CHASE TIME!
