Stormy weather


I was about to get into my car to go to the office to drop some things off yesterday, but the bright, cheerful sunny skies had suddenly turned into this:
It was windy and downright scary – especially since I had to convince an adult daughter to get her butt in the house – she was on the swing ferchrisssakes! Sheesh! Of course Mom was a doofus, too, standing outside and taking pictures during a thunderstorm- brilliant, huh? But I did get some fun pictures in.  Luckily there was no twister, but it wouldn’t have surprised me if it had turned to a small one as fast as the wind was starting up and as loud as it got for a while there.   Thankfully (!!!) this part of the country rarely gets such weather phenomena, but it has  happened a few times since we’ve lived in Merlin, so you never know.
This morning I got up super early to get to the office before an 8:30 meeting I thought was happening at the courthouse, but apparently had been canceled (serves me right for missing the last meeting!).  So, I was uncharacteristically up at 5:30 and out the door by 7 and in and out of the office by 8.  When I realized I was going to be leaving Towson at a very very bad traffic time, I took the back woods way home and it was lovely.
Lately, the mornings are so sunny and bright.  Birds are chirping, there’s a breeze in the air. You’d swear it was May! But now that it’s later in the afternoon, it looks like rain.  I said to Joanna that it looks like we’ve switched weathers with the Northwest.  And I am NOT complaining! (but Joanna is!).

Am about to head out the door to play my weekly Ring Around the Beltway to visit clients and will be missing Sip N Knit again, so I thought I’d console myself by posting some pics of my
progress on the Sandrine. I’ve frogged twice and so far it feels like the third time is the charm. Well, dear readers, God be with you ’til we meet again!

Wife of one, mother of six, gram of five (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!

  1. Wow! That looks like a pretty exciting storm. I love them as long as I am snugly tucked inside at home. Otherwise, they can be a little on the icky side too get around in.
    The current knitting looks very nice.

  5. Joanna – I am with you – snugly tucked inside with a book, knitting and/or fire in the fireplace (assuming there is one in the house, LOL!)
    and maybe a wee cup of coffee or a glass of vino,depending on the time of day!
    Colin – 30F???That is awful! I wonder if it's an effect of global warming???
