One Liner Wednesday–Weather

Based on satellite imagery and surface observations, the risk of tropical-storm-force winds reaching the coastline appears now to be minimal.”

The seagulls aren’t buying that.

These guys are usually flying and landing in the river. Today, they had no interest in leaving the ground or the shore.

We never got the rain they were predicting. We really wanted some rain. We need rain. We did, however get some very strong wind gusts during the night.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun series One-Liner Wednesday. Check out Linda’s post and all the other one-liners

One Liner Wednesday.


  1. You could have some of the rain from yesterday and the flooding rains some parts are supposed to get today. I would share that with you. On the other hand, I’m glad you didn’t get damaging storms. That could have been worse than the dryness.

    • Thanks for the offer, Mary. We were happy not to have too high winds. The trees are in danger of breaking and falling due to lack of water this year. There has been a lot of emergency tree trimming late this summer. If we get a bad storm, they are expecting lots of damage.

      • Oh boy, that’s not good. We had a storm in the area several years ago with straight line winds. It had been raining quite a bit before the winds came along, so they uprooted many trees in the area, some of them fairly large trees. It was a pretty sad sight, so I hope that doesn’t happen to your area.

    • Thanks Wendy. At this point, I’d take rain in almost any form. Slow and steady would be the best, but we really do need rain. I have a lot of red sky at morning photos lately, but we haven’t had any weather the sailors would worry about. We did have a beautiful day after that evening red sky though.


  2. Like the colors in the sky of that one picture. Yeah, the seagulls know more than we do for sure. Well, at least when it comes to weather. Not too sure what else they know but if it is something good, I wish they’d speak up. Rain is important, especially when it comes in manageable bouts. Wind on the other hand is never good when its so strong. I hope the trees hold out!

  3. rain…rain…so abundant in some areas….so little in others!! We just had the remnants from the Mexico hurricane role through….nice steady rain for most of the day….parts of AZ got quite a bit, but Phoenix area…just enough….felt like I was living elsewhere with such a nice rainy day……

  4. The weatherman tonight on the 6 pm news said ‘no rain tonight, it’s going to pass by us’. About 30 minutes ago a MAJOR thunderstorm started to roll through. It’s still pouring buckets outside and I’m doing a happy dance. We too really, really need the rain.

    This is one time I’m SOOO happy the weatherman was wrong. Completely, totally, utterly wrong.


  5. I was traveling yesterday and did not have the time to respond. I liked this first-hand report on the storm. It is too bad that you didn’t at least get some rain out of it. We have that problem as well. All the predictions and none of the follow through. Beautiful photos.


  6. I wrote three messages yesterday and on each blog they didn’t show up! Funky cell phone is no longer identified. Hopefully, there is an errant comment in the WP pending approval section.
    I liked the sky photograph the best (surprise!) but also enjoyed the other serene scenes, Dan.
    The blue water, sea gulls up on Lake Erie were a source of pleasure over Labor Day weekend with my brother, Randy, and grandson Micah taking it all in. Hope you get torrential rain to help prepare the New England autumn leaves presentation! :)


  7. The best way to find out what the weather is doing is to go to your front door and step out onto your porch or stoop. You look up at the sky and at the trees. Then look around to see what doesn’t look usual. You have your up-to-date weather report.
