Melancholy Sunday

I am sad for some reason. Don't know why. I haven't felt like writing or posting photos, tho' many have been taken. Tonight, I sat outside and enjoyed the weather. Hurricane Ida is coming in. I love the storms until I have to clean up the aftermath. I think that most people don't know what really happened with Katrina. New Orleans just got drowned. After the fact. When you live in a soup bowl, you are going to get water. Figure it out. And plan ahead.

Mississippi got swiped over. A paw that flattened everything on the Coast. We lost 80% of our trees. God insured that none hit our home. Safe and sound. But it was worse than an Oklahoma tornado, which I have lived through several. Tornados come unexpectedly. You have no time to prepare. Hurricanes give plenty of notice. There is no reason to not be ready!
Wishing all who may be in Ida's path a safe passing.


  1. Hello,

    I hope your Monday is going well. I think it is totally normal to get the 'blues' from time to time. I know I do. Being outside and enjoying nature is preferable to me then sitting at computer.

    You have been through so many natural disasters that I have not. I grew up in California and have been through lots of earthquakes, but that is the extent of my natural disasters. I too, hope that the hurricane does not cause damage.

  2. We used to live in Nebraska and had some near misses. I used to have nightmares about Tornadoes. I am glad we moved!
    I am sending you some (((hugs))) and hope you are lighter in heart soon.
    Be safe!
