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?
-Job 37:15

The Majesty of His Power

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

As I was saying, hurricane season is not over till it's over. We've now got a 1,2,3 line up of tropical action, all siblings off the coast of Africa barreling across the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane Danielle category 2Hurricane Danielle, now, once again a category 2 hurricane after some interaction with dry air has rebounded to be quite a storm, now showing indications of eyewall development. She is actually forecast to become a major hurricane, but I would expect her to become a fish storm, staying out to sea. Unfortunately, her little brother, Tropical Storm Earl, hot on her heels, is also forecast to get close to major hurricane strength, but he is expected to take a more southern track, which makes him a contender for some US action. I can almost hear the headlines... "Goodbye Earl!" "Earl's Gotta Die!" What a storm to impact the US... sigh. The third system, still just is wave (an impressive wave!), is hot off the coast of Africa, but some are already talking Fiona...It looks pretty impressive to me!

Tuesday was a crazy day for me. I had a wonderful afternoon excursion over lunch with my wonderful groom, and we went and explored in the jeep some! It was yet another great adventure for the two of us. We saw some really interesting things along the way including crews working to break down some rail cars that had de-railed. I had never seen that before, so it was really neat. Then, I went to the doctor’s and got some icky news about a test he wants to run. I’ll survive it, but I am not excited about it. As I was leaving from Wally World, someone backed into my van… bumped in the side door. It’s only cosmetic… no one was injured and the mechanics of the door were unaffected, but seriously… what a day! I had a great meeting at church after that, but then, when I went to pick up Mini-Dew from practice, the sky had a hint of mammatus clouds popping. Of course, I stuck around out there, shooting a few pics until they were no longer visible. The pretty much fizzled out, just in time for sunset. Doesn’t that figure? I went in to get Mini-Dew and when I came out… KAPLOW!Awesome post dusk mammatus clouds... and then it followed me home!!! What a spectacular demonstration of God's awesomeness. He has a beautiful way of encouraging me, in the perfect way. I love my little love letters from God! Wasn’t it sensational?!

Have a mammatus-ful day!
