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?

Kansas has a shot

SKY WATCH FRIDAY time! Thanks to Dot and Tom, never forgotten founders of this great event. Come on, come fly with us!
Thanks to hosts: Klaus Sandy Sylvia Wren Louise Fishing Guy

My days (actually minutes) of being able to head my Sky Watch posts this way are numbered, but I want to do it while I can. Dealing with IT Nazis can be challenging and frustrating. I just wish this blog wasn’t such a treasured escape from the blah of my cinder block prison. I know, I know, so atypical of me, posting a picture of a bird, not something weather related, but in order to post a weather-related picture, I would need weather (you can check out my archive special storm shot posted below if you like… it’s more along the lines of what you usually see from me.) This is a special hawk though. He landed on a tree, just on the other side of my cinder block prison, ignoring the taunts of the bold (stupid) mockingbirds that swooped in to terrorize him for apparently treading on their territory. I can understand wanting to protect your babies, but eek, who’s going to feed those babies when the irritated hawk bites your head off??? Anyways, a co-worker was out there and saw it land and came running in, beckoning me to come quick and bring my camera (she must know me…) So, there you have it, dewdropweather is posting a bird.

Speaking of weather though… (what? You didn’t think I would stay off weather all together, did you?), there is a slight risk smack dab in the middle of the plains today, which has Vortex 2 chomping at the bit for some action. Unfortunately for them, it doesn’t look like tornadoes are a big part of the severe forecast for the day, so they may end up just chasing hail, but at least they’ll have something.

The tornado hatched area is only about 2% likely to have tornadoes, but I would imagine that Vortex 2 is camped out in northwestern Kansas with their fingers crossed.

Be safe!


  1. Oh you have to mix up the SW posting sometimes, you know, especially if it's a special visitor like this one.
