Afterthoughts

I sheltered inside most of the day. Waited for Hurricane Michael to pass through–for better or worse.

Clouds rotated counterclockwise from north to south. Verification of meteorologist’s predictions, that we were on the “safer” west side of the storm.

From a few early morning sprinkles, came heavy rain. What was yet to come?

This evening, the sun peeked out. It was not as bad as it could have been.

A sobering thought, because my good fortune, meant others weren’t as fortunate.

Television meteorologists struggled to stand, when Michael came ashore. Their tenacity, to cover the weather event, defied logic.

A few remnant, scud clouds, raced counterclockwise, in the evening sky. On the northeast horizon, an ominous cloud wall, left in a rush of madness.

Waiting For Michael

Just when you couldn’t stand any more tropical weather systems, along came Michael.

Expected to become a Cat 3 hurricane before landfall. So far, I’m projected to be outside the Western edge of the cone.

Be vigilant, and respond accordingly, seems to be the normal course of action. Uncertainty is always the worst part. Nature has been known to pull last-minute surprises.

As of this posting, no plans to evacuate. Lawn chairs, barbecue grills, loose, lawn items will be stored away.

After Michael blows through, it’s supposed to finally be fall. I could use some fall weather and cooler nights.  All those affected, stay safe!
