Here There and Everywhere

Daytime Weather Drama

No sooner had I sent the last post than all hell broke loose. The sky opened up and the rain poured down, Qatteri Cat hid under the table, the lightning danced out over the Gulf, two, three strikes at a time, the wind blew, the thunder roared and my camera had a hard time knowing where to focus. I am running around, trying to capture some of the drama, and eventually things start to lighten up. Qatteri Cat has resumed his spot on the table and watches as things calm down.


I download my shots and attempt to upload – only to discover – we lost our Internet.

I run the diagnostic programs and it tells me it is the server, nothing I can do, so I work on other projects and come back – maybe an hour later – to discover I’m back up again.

So here is a little of what we saw:

Torrents – real torrents of rain, sheets of rain:

And here are some drops being blown by the wind:


And all those little white things? Those things you can see against the dark of the trees? Those are raindrops, except they are more like very long drops!


I feel like a little kid. It was fun. It was wonderful. I want more! I want more! More!

  1. Nice pictures Intlxpatr….esp the curious look of QC and the trees being battered. The second pic of the clouds n torrents…reminded me of the movie…..’The Perfect Storm’.
