W is for Weather

Oops! I knew that I fell behind but I found this post sitting in drafts!! I thought I had scheduled it.

Spring in the Midwest! It’s quite the experience. In the past two weeks we have experienced temperatures between the low 30’s through the upper 70’s. We’ve had sun, wind, torrential rain, and heavy snow. Yesterday we were outside enjoying a beautiful sunny day with blue skies and white fluffy clouds floating by and today brings gloomy gray skies and possibly snow. I can honestly say that we have experienced all four seasons in a two week period!!

  • “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”   -John Ruskin
  • “A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” ~Carl Reiner
  • “The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.” ~Patrick Young
  • “Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.” ~Kin Hubbard

A to Z Challenge


Hope the weather is just as you like it in your part of the world!

One Word Photo Challenge: Storm

This week’s topic for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge is Storm.

Magic Kingdom Storm Epcot

Although my first intention was to get creative with the prompt “storm”, these photos kept jumping up and waving their hands like kids in a classroom- “Pick me! Pick me!”

And so I did.

These were taken on our Disney vacation last summer. They were taken on three different days and each time they preceded or followed a glorious storm. No cheerful Disney rain showers one minute, sun shining the next for us. Despite the volatile weather, we had fun. 🙂
