Skywatch Friday - Monsoon Edition

Parade of Homes Skywatch

We've got kind of a monsoon thing going on in Oklahoma right now after a very dry June. It clouds up and rains almost every afternoon. If I don't get a dry day then I'm going to have to get somebody that cuts hay to come cut my grass. So the grass and mosquitoes are thick but we have some beautiful skies. I like blue skies as much as anybody but give me some big ole flat fluffy clouds any time.

Skywatch Friday - 23 July 2020 Edition


Welcome to another edition of Skywatch Friday where bloggers (and the occasional instagrammer) display their best sky photos from all over the world.

It is full blown hot muggy summertime right now in Oklahoma. If we have to do outside we do it early or late and we welcome the fronts with the dry weather behind them. I have major respect for construction, yard, roofing, and other people who work outside in the full sun. You know they are earning their pay this time of year.

Skywatch Friday - 16 July 2020 Edition

DSCF0156 </ br> </ br> Welcome to another edition of Skywatch Friday. We are in the dog days of summer here in Oklahoma. It is hot and humid, every day. Not complaining because it was this way long before global warming was ever heard of by anybody. It is refreshing to read the posts from our friends in the southern hemisphere because they are having winter!! I am still trying to figure out how the flat earth crowd explains that. Everybody stay safe and have a great week. </ br> </ br>

Skywatch Friday - 9 July 2020 Edition


Welcome to Skywatch Friday and thank you for participating. You might have to bear with me a little bit here because blogger is not showing the "HTML" mode so I am not exactly sure how I am going to get the linky to work. You know how computers and software is right? When they work as intended, it is wonderful. When they don't work it is maddening. So I am going to do the usual things. Save this post. Shut everything down and reboot and see what happens.

Okay so I did all that and nothing changed but aha!! I reverted to "Legacy Blogger" mode and there I can get the HTML mode!! Maybe next week the new improved blogger html mode will be working. So for this week we are stepping back in time. In keeping with that I changed the photo from a current one to back to the mid 1990's. It's a geyser at Yellowstone National Park. Which one? I don't remember. Sorry. It probably doesn't look too much different today except you go these days you'll see lots of selfie sticks. Back then you didn't have selfies. Not that many people had cell phones. Those that did didn't take selfies with them. They talked on them, they didn't stare at them all day. Sounds like the good old days to me.

Skywatch Friday - 2020 Independence Day Edition


July 4th is Independence Day in the USA when we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Usually its a day of family get togethers, parades, speeches, music, and of course fireworks. This year will be a little different many of the community events, including most fireworks, are cancelled due to the pandemic. Personally our family will celebrate with just ourselves, the epidemiologists are expecting a spike in cases after the weekend. I hope everybody uses some common sense!!

Stay safe everybody!!
