Why is it that...


 Yesterday was a nice summer day, a little humid but the temperature wasn't too high. We had a few rain showers during the afternoon but we need rain so it wasn't too bad. Everything was fine, all seemed good, there were no weather warnings and then suddenly I heard thunder and saw this out my window.

 Feeling anxious instantly, I text my neighbor/friend, "why is it that lately every storm has to look like armageddon is approaching"? I figured if I'm going down, I wanted my final words to be smarty pants-ish, like me. I did my magic storm chanting, "go away, go away, go away, well at least it gives me something to do.


At least it was moving slowly, so that's a good sign at first, less likely to be a tornado hidden in there.


There was some thunder and lightning but not as bad as other storms, the weird thing was the colour of the sky, my camera was adjusting the weird pink colour and making it brighter than it actually was, in real life it was strange. My neighbour text back, "jeepers that's a crazy looking sky"!


 I know green sky means possible tornado coming but what does pink sky mean? Anyway the darkest clouds passed over relatively harmless, some wind but not that strong. The pink sky brought rain, a good shower for the rest of the evening but we really needed it so that was a bonus. I text my neighbour back, "thankfully it only brought rain, not the apocalypse"! Then I checked inside my pants, nope still dry, no wetness, I'm good to go. :D

Steven, pink means it was my impending arrival. I'm like Glinda the good witch of the north. Next time look for me in my big pink bubble....and when I land I may emerge dressed. Or not.

@Maddie- I vote for not! I keep picturing you in Glinda's big dress and it covers too much of that gorgeous bod, sugar! Now, a tight t-shirt and undies (I don't know where I got that idea, heh) would be perfect!
Stevie, Maddie's explanation makes more sense than mine. I was going with a gay tornado that decided not to rearrange your metaphorical furniture.

AHAHAHAAHAHAHAAAA! Maddie makes me laugh. Smarty-pants, now that's something I haven't heard since I was a kid, like 50 years ago. I would kill for rain right now. We are in our drought season and shouldn't get rain for at least another two or three months even though the weather guys are reporting a chance of rain next week. I'll believe it when I see it.

Maddie is so funny!
Anyhow, yes, where was I?
Your photographs really capture the power and the beauty.
Glad it wasn't too bad.
Here in Lancashire we have got flood warnings all over the place. The rain has been biblical!
Stay safe.

Maddie? As a GOOD witch?

We could use some of that rain too. Please stop hogging it all for yourself.

I'm guessing Maddie will not be dressed.

Maddie, I really don't know how to respond to this except for the last part... NOT! ;P

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Deedles, you started me laughing at the thought of Maddie in the big puffy dress!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Leanna, that's our Maddie, he's like a candy treat, sweet but nutty! I hope you get rain, grass was starting to die around here.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Christina, we haven't been getting any rain for a while now, we did get a good rain last evening.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Old Lurker, Maddie might be wicked but it's a different type of wicked! ;p

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Richard, probably not but the hoards of mosquitoes would probably change his mind real quick! Lol
