Is Severe Weather Becoming A Way Of LIfe?

September 12, 2013

Good afternoon.  Gosh, I've been watching the Weather Channel all morning about the awful flooding in Colorado.  My heart goes out to those folks.  They still have several days of rain coming before any water can begin to recede. 

The scenes I am watching on the TV screen are horrible.  Three people have already died.  Roads are caving in, with cars and trucks falling into deep waters.  So far, the people in the vehicles have all managed to get out safely.  Mandatory evacuations have begun in several areas, and their Governor has finally declared it a disaster so that government aid can be requested.

I just don't understand the severe weather that we are getting now.  It just keeps coming with no let up.  I think that whatever harm man has done to the outer atmosphere is something we cannot fix or undo.  It makes me very sad.  We may not have a beautiful earth to leave to our grandchildren.

At the moment, we are getting "severe thunderstorm" warnings for our area due to a storm coming up through Rhode Island.   We are expecting thunderstorms on and off through the night and tomorrow morning.   I have to work tomorrow, but at least I will have Pogo with me.  He doesn't mind the weather, but the loud thunder and lightning does scare him.

Enough gloom and doom.  I have some nice photos of the gulls at our local park.  They are really quite beautiful to watch.

Now I  think I'll try to accomplish a few things here.  Before you know it suppertime will be here.  Tonight my favorite TV program is on (Project Runway) and after that I'm hoping that the sandman will pay a visit so that I can sleep  through the night.  That would be nice.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I hear ya in regards to the weather. After having an abnormally warm winter but also with lots of rain we have now been warned to prepare for a hotter than average summer.

New South Wales are already experiencing bushfires and North Queensland's temperatures have been hotter than usual.

There are still many sceptics around that don't believe in this climate change thing, but too much is happening around the globe and especially in America for there not to be something going on.

Hope you manage to get a good nights sleep and your working day is an enjoyable one. At least you'll have Pogo with you.

Also saw on the news the floods in Colorado. Then there are still the bushfires in Califonia, other parts of the world are having weather troubles too, it is horrible.
And nature always is stronger than human beings, we can try to defend ourselves against water, sun, wind and everything, but we can never beat it.
Good thing you have Pogo with you at work when there is expected thunder and lightning.
Pets never are happy with thunder.
And although the lightning can be magnificent to watch it is a frightning thing too.
Stay safe.
