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.
