Skywatch Friday - 27 August 2020 Edition

Reverse Sunset in Tulsa

Welcome to the latest edition of Skywatch Friday. Hurricane Laura made landfall last night in western Louisiana and as I write this is deep in central Louisiana and is still a category two hurricane. I have no idea what that would be like. Years ago I lived in Conroe, Texas, 100 miles north of Galveston when a very weak Hurricane Alicia went through Galveston and Houston and came to my neighborhood, very much weakened. It was about as much fun as I could stand. Next time I vowed I would go to Nebraska. How about you, have you ever sheltered in place during a hurricane?

Skywatch Friday - 20 August 2020 Edition


Welcome back to Skywatch Friday. Had a great sunrise the other day in the neighborhood and I posted it on Instagram and Facebook. I thought it looked pretty good but most of  the comments were about the big dent in my neighbor's car.  It has been that way for so long that I didn't even notice it. And no, I don't know what happened except that he has two teenage drives so it might have been anything!!

I hope everybody has had a good week!! Lets see some sky posts!!

Skywatch Friday - 13 August 2020 Edition


Oklahoma continues to have a lot of weather lately, no tornadoes so far, but lots of rain. It almost reminds me of when I lived in Houston when in the summer it would cloud up and rain every afternoon. It's keeping everything nice and green here but not muddy. My yard loves it, I cut it and a few days later it needs cutting again. If I wait too long I risk having to get a hay crew in to cut and bale it. I'll take rainy weather any time. I lived too long in the west to take rain and the water it brings for granted. At least it is not the deluges we had last year that caused so much flooding.

Skywatch Friday - 6 August 2020 Edition


Welcome to a new edition of Skywatch Friday. It's the dog days of summer here. Here in Oklahoma some of the schools have started and there are lots of options virtual, real, hybrid. Parents have a lot of decisions to make.  At least being outside with our cameras is pretty safe, I would think, especially  especially if we keep our distance from others.
