Skywatch Friday - 27 May 2021 Edition

Sunset over Tulsa_HDR

A drone shot from south Tulsa pointing northwest. Rainy weather is making my wife's flowers grow fast and provides for great skies at sunset.

I hope everybody has a great holiday weekend (in the USA it is Memorial Day on Monday.)

Skywatch Friday - 20 May 2021


It's getting kind of swampy here in northeast Oklahoma. Temperatures are still cool but we are getting lots of rain. The good kind of soft rain not the hard unrelenting rain that causes floods. The mosquitoes love it. I don't hate it. I launch my drone up in between rains and capture the cloudy skies. I am not worried. It will be hot here soon enough.

I hope that everybody is staying safe.

Skywatch Friday - 13 May 2021 Edition


Here in Oklahoma the weather is grand. I went on a bike ride in Osage County on a rail to trail route and it was wonderful. The weather was cool and sunny. It was just me, the trail, lots of birds, squirrels, old oil wells and cattle. It doesn't get much better than that.
I am hoping that everybody gets outside and enjoys the weather this week.

Skywatch Friday - 6 May 2021 Edition

Lafortune Park Skies

Here in Mid-America the temperatures are still a little low and we have had lots of rain. So much so that even though we activated our sprinkler system at the house we haven't had to water the yard yet. We get this cycle of rain followed by intense sunshine and it looks as though the grass is just throwing itself up into the air. And then the mosquitoes come out. You let the grass go without mowing too long and you'll need to hire a hay mower to come out and harvest a crop of hay. I have to tell you that I earned money during high school and college by yard work, mowing and gardening. I kind of halfway enjoy mowing but I had my fill of gardening and get no pleasure from it. I do like the results though. I know lots of people do though and I salute them!!.
