Weekly photo challenges – Trasformation

In Texas we have a transformation period that is going on right now. Will it be cold or hot? Super cloudy or super sunny? But in the afternoon sometimes we get blessed with the most beautiful clouds and sunsets.

I have several pictures of these beautiful times during the transformations of the seasons in Texas.

The people who stayed when Harvey said it was time to go

I have watched so many videos of people who are staying in evacuated areas from hurricane Harvey. I feel a lot better knowing that the people who wanted to be safe had the chance to get out but my heart worries for these jokers.

I am in North Texas and I don’t think we will get barely any bad weather here. But if it does get bad enough for an evacuation notice then I will be getting the **** out of dodge.

With hurricane Harvey now being a category 4 I hope that these people will heed the warning of the national weather service and get out of there.

I might be a boring person compared to these thrill seekers but when it comes to danger of my personal safety I say “no thank you not today” lol

I watched the solar eclipse today

Well I did not actually watch it because of the sun damaging effects but II did watch from my patio that is right under the sun. It looked like a post apocalypse and all the shadows looked so cool.

beautiful clouds

I post entirely to many posts about the weather haha like what am I , in my golden years, all I have to talk about is the weather hahaha not really but I know I post a lot about the weather. It is just so beautiful sometimes like breathtaking. There are no buildings higher than 2 levels high in a 15 mile radius around me and I think that gives me an advantage to see what Texas rolls in. This night it was really lightening like crazy. Like a spiderweb something I hadn’t really seen but in pictures and videos. But I caught it on video. Lol I think I sound so funny like I am so proud of myself lol

 

This picture did not turn out so well but I thought it was cool.TimePhoto_20170806_202507.jpg

I lost power during a crazy storm

It was an entire grid square that lost power for about 8 hours. The crazy part is we lost power like an hour after the storm had ended. It blew a sign down at my job during the bad part but and hour later the power goes out.  I was so happy that at least it was not crazy hot during this blistering summer because the rain had cooled it down. But it was definitely no fun waiting out this power outage.

This one is just funny cause it was just too dark to take a picture.

This is how low key the weather was when we lost power.

 

A crazy storm blew the sign down at my job

These last few weeks we have had some crazy weather in Texas. But this time it knocked the side of our sign off. It is about six feet wide and I think it is a miracle it did not hit a car. I heard the noise of it falling but I assumed someone opened a car door and the wind pushed it open and made it hit something. The wind did get so crazy for a while. It made the power go out.TimePhoto_20170707_153236.jpgTimePhoto_20170707_153232.jpg

Beautiful clouds

We had a beautiful sunset today. I know I put all of posts on here about the weather and my camera doesn’t do the sky Justice. I just want share something that I thought was breath taking.
