Changes on the Way Posted on September 20, 2017 by Debbie The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, nineteenth century American poet Gathering storm clouds Hurricane remnants perhaps? No, just a cold front Related
Oh, my. “Just” a cold front? There are hundreds — or hundreds of thousands — of people down here who would pay you big bucks if you could manage to send that our way. Hot, humid, hotter, and ghastly is what we’re facing for another little while. It’s the Gulf coast, and it’s supposed to be this way. But we’re starting to feel like northerners feel when winter drags on just a little too long.
Linda, I wish it had brought some COLD. Or more rain. We, too, have been awfully hot and dry (90s days and no rain to speak of for weeks). The weather folks called this a “cold front,’ but all it did was shift around the clouds. I hate to say it, but this time of year, only a hurricane in the Gulf provides us much relief — and no way do we need more of them!!
Debbie, and you know, I LOVE this time of the year when we move in Autumn and the temperatures drop. We’ve had a very hot and humid summer, so I look forward to the season change. I was in Starbucks the other day and smiled when I saw that they are now serving their Autumn drinks and pumpkin scones 🙂
*doing the happy dance*
Beautiful photograph of the storm clouds!
Enjoy the rest of your week, my friend!
That’s right, you’re a pumpkin-lover, too! I picked up some candy corn and candy pumpkins the other day when I was grocery shopping. I have to PULL myself away from scarfing down the whole bag, ha!
I’m really looking forward to Fall. Some of our trees are starting to turn — probably from stress over too much heat and lack of rain, actually. Eventually, we’ll bring out the corduroy and flannel. Happy dance is right!
Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned! xo
Nice Haiku, Debbie. We always hope for a cold front since it signals the end of Hurricane season.
I think the end of hurricane season can’t come soon enough this year. Wow, what an unprecedented amount of activity the Atlantic and Gulf have had!
I know right?
Lovely sky! I guess what’s happening to various people around the world with extreme weather events at the moment is making us lucky people who live in relatively temperate zones think twice before complaining about our own weather!
You know, FF, I fear this is going to be a hard winter for us. For too long, we’ve been sitting pretty while all around us has been misery. Hurricanes, wildfires, drought, you name it. I suppose Mother Nature will get even with us eventually!
HARD to cope w/ sometimes.))) xxx
So true, Kim. The good thing is, I’m not shoveling snow, haha!! 😉
Great haiku, Debbie. We’re gonna see rain here, too. Fab photo, as well.
Thank you, Miss Audrey. We had a few drops, and that was all. We need way more to fill up the cracks in my backyard!
We’re supposed to get a bunch over the weekend. Guess we’ll see. It’s dry here, too.
Beautiful blue sky and clouds, Debbie. Nature is truly awe inspiring. We have been having some horrible 100 degree days, blinding sun and heat. I’m hoping that October will bring some cooler weather maybe even a taste of fall. Hope you have a lovely and enjoyable season!
Thanks, Lana. We’ve been beastly hot too — up in the 90s with tropical humidity. I thought this would give us some relief, but I was wrong. Happy weekend anyway!
