Weather watching is somewhat like…(insert your own thought here)..oh, my thought? (like it matters, eh;) I was thinking people watching. Some of us fragile life are unpredictable/moody like a threatening storm or mild/predictable…temperate…consistently nice/pleasant (aka boring? lol:)…nah, I don’t mind pleasant and nice. Nor do I mind the changing seasons and all there/their expressive glory.
Florida has been experiencing an unusual Winter…Tornadoes blew through earlier this week…we had rain and winds and also colder temps…in our neck of the woods–Port Charlotte–we had a transformer blow, lost power, internet, phone, etc at our house…For parts of Sun-day and Monday evening this week…our coldest night. of course mostly mourning our lost trees…a live wire fell and set three treetops on fire in our backyard. And Other trees were cut down..I think by FPL to fix wire, etc..(don’t know what damaged more trees the wind or man and his chainsaw)…I think the chainsaw made more of a mess than nature. (Nothing against all the workers, firefighters who came out to help the situation for which I am Thankful, they have to work within certain parameters…to get the safety job done:)
Take the wire and leave the trees please:(…Also, it’s VERY sad that humans died or die due to weather-related variables.:(
Friday we were on a severe thunderstorm watch, not complaining..explaining, while in Other places blizzards. Today, Saturday…it’s super windy..our canopy/gazebo..whatever the netting, canvas, metal structure is called over our outdoor table/chairs…is toppled/wrecked..that’s this temporary reality…butchered trees..all of us are weather-beaten in one manner or another…:(
…I’m sorta ticked off..at how humans seem (some of those in power)to be bent toward destruction and rampage and wreckage, war as solutions to problems…MUCH stupidity at work!! if you ask me. (Oh sorry, you weren’t asking.)
No, actually I consider myself an optimistic realist. If i wIsh trees to flourish, I don’t go to the chainsaw (aka as a dead end: don’t experienced drivers avoid dead-ends??)..go to the sun and rain. If I wIsh Peace..go to war mongers?..Go to the pursuers/promoters of Peace/Friends of Peace/Life.
me, trying my best to show (by my choices big and small on a daily basis) a consistent pattern of mounting evidence…that I am a Friend of Peace.
A friend of compassion. A Friend of Yahweh. A Friend to Fellow-Fragile Life…a Friend and not a foe to this beautiful planet.
Be Safe Reader (from all kinds of weather)…and May You Continue to Grow (spiritually & Otherwise) like an uncut tree with plenty of rain and sun.:)
Interesting Song/Words of Ancient Advice…
1 Happy is the man who does not walk according to the advice of the wicked
And does not stand on the path of sinners
And does not sit in the seat of scoffers.
2 But his delight is in the law of Jehovah,
And he reads His law in an undertone day and night.
3 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water,
A tree that produces fruit in its season,
The foliage of which does not wither.
And everything he does will succeed.
