Skywatch Friday - 25 March 2021 Edition


It's been raining, and then the winds come and dry everything out and we have grass fires, then it rains again. Yep, it is springtime in Oklahoma. Until we get some green grass we'll have the cycles. And it is strangely cool. Things are all messed up.

I hope everybody is having a great week.

Skywatch Friday 18 March 2020 Edition


Welcome to another week of Skywatch Friday. Here in the USA we had two events that made us bleery eyed this week. Daylight Savings Time started early Sunday morning and Saint Patrick's Day was yesterday. I hope everybody survived those things. I am still not used to the change in time. I do all my Saint Patrick's Day celebrating at home these days. And there is another thing in US, it is Spring Break time. I drove to western Oklahoma and picked up son yesterday from college. That sky above is from that trip. It turned kind of stormy later on but hey we made it.

And as an aside, now the kid is here and he has a Zoom class coming up. Which is taking in his pajamas and is hair is all over the place. I got grumped at when I said something, hah. Kids haven't changed much over the years.

Thanks for participating and I hope everybody has a great week!

Skywatch Friday - 11 March 2021 Edition


We are getting deeper into early Spring here in Oklahoma. We have nice, sunny, warm days, then some rain, then hot dry winds where it gets so dry that grass fires start. In fact, the family of Oklahoma's most famous blogger, Ree Drummond, of the Pioneer Woman blog, has a tragedy recently. Her husband and nephew had a head on collision driving fire trucks battling a grass fire on their ranch. Her husband refused treatment but the nephew is in a hospital with severe injuries. We send our thoughts and prayers to the family.

Be safe everybody!! Thank you for participating.
