Today's Weather Just Can't Make Up Its Mind

October 24, 2018

Good morning.  Tis gray with temps in the mid forties, and there's a wee bit of a breeze.  We still have puddles left over from yesterday.  They're not big enough to be needing a canoe, but they are big enough for the birds and the small critters to play and bathe in. 

Yesterday was quite a day for weather.  We had wind and rain, sometimes coming down heavy.  And for about an hour and a half we were under tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings.  I kept the Weather Channel on, and took a couple photos from the TV screen.

This first photo shows the storm in Raynham, MA.  There was some damage reported, although I don't think there was a lot.  (I hope)

This next photo shows the funnel clouds over Cape Cod by the Bourne Bridge.

There were other funnel clouds and a few water funnels reported (and shown on TV).  We were lucky in our area.  We had no hail or tornadoes, just wind and rain and thunder and lightning.  For this, I'm thankful. 

Pogo and I were able to stand out on the porch and watch a lot of the weather yesterday.  I did notice that my Imperial Tree is almost naked now.  It is covered with new nuts, but very few leaves left on it. 

I'm noticing that some of the leaves on my big trees out front are beginning to turn a yellowy green.   This part makes me a little sad because it means that soon all the leaves will turn yellow and fall to the ground.   The trees are so beautiful with all their grassy green leaves.

I just went out to meet the mailman, and I noticed that my car is covered with rain drops.  However, as I look out my door now, the sun is shining and things are looking brighter.  Even when it is cold, it always feels better when the sun is shining. 

Today I have a new quick page for you.  This one is another from my Halloween collection.  Have some fun with it.

Here is your download link:

My coffee cup is empty now, and I think I'm going to make myself a cup of hot apple cider.  As I'm looking out my door, the sun has gone behind the clouds and it is raining again.  Yup, I think I need that hot apple cider.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Wow! I did not hear about the tornadoes in New England. How terrible! I'm so glad you and Pogo are safe. But so much rain! I wish I could send you some of our sunshine. It's cold, but at least the sun is out.
