Inclement Weather

I don't remember storms like this in August. It's so wet, windy, and wild in Chicagoland. I had to stop and take a couple of photos as I was driving. And as I write this now, the late afternoon skies have turned black. God help.

Great photos. My daughter called from Evanston on the way home, saying that there was a tornado. A tornado in Evanston. Trees were down all the way through Wilmette. Wow. They had a tornado in Brooklyn the other day also.

And we have been freezing for days on end in New York. All this can be sung to the tune of:

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fiiiiiinnnneeeee

Ya Haqq!

Subhan Allah. Reminds me of Surah Dukhan. Makes me feel like being under the ground. Also makes me wonder what it would be like to hover in the midst of those clouds (without the aid of a helicoptor or something). No mediation.

I guess physics is no friend to me here.

I'm glad the photo represented a glimpse of the moment. I was wondering if that would be possible with a photo or two. It was just before the rains fell (walls of water crashing down) and thunder moving closer and lightning bolts coming straight downward perpendicular, right over head. Well, it’s official: this has been the stormiest August on record. What a word “record”! Statistics bother me sometimes because they rob one of the wondrous nature of things and our receptivity of the signs and ultimate power behind them. Thank you all for your comments.
