One-Liner Wednesday – Weather

“Gray skies are gonna clear up – put on a happy face!”

11-22-16fcastOK, so it doesn’t look like they are going to clear up, there’s still reason for a happy face. This may be my closest to one-line one-liner Wednesday ever! I’ll just be paying my respects, offering you some photos and giving you two songs to think about, if you’re also living under gray skies today.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday.

About Dan Antion

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.

    I can’t believe it, but we’ve been having the perfect autumn here in south FL!! That doesn’t happen very often, we’re usually swimming still! But these cool fronts coming through are actually putting me in the Christmas spirit early, which hasn’t happened in a very long time!! Hope your weather clears up soon!

    November grey skies don’t bother me. My oldest son was born in October and during that first magical month with a newborn, I came to appreciate the beauty in dark skies. Your photos remind me of that wonderful time.

      They don’t bother me much either Joanne. It’s why I got up early to catch some photos of the sunrise behind the clouds. A lot of folks around me have been complaining, but I really enjoy looking at clouds.

    I really liked your 10,000 maniacs song, Dan. You definitely displayed a beautiful array of gray skies which will luckily clear up eventually! They are a perpetual art display in their many colors!
    Have a marvelous and warm Thanksgiving to you, Faith and wife! <3

      Thanks Robin. I’m glad you like that song. That’s how I feel on days where I have to go to work. Otherwise, the clouds don’t bother me much. They are beautiful, and, although I did a poor job capturing it, the bright sun behind dark clouds was mesmerizing yesterday morning.

    Loved the Dick Van Dyke clip. (For what it’s worth, it reminded me of Singing in the Rain, which is one of my favorite movies of all time.)

    Slapping on that smile and heading off to work. It has been sunny but a tad cold here in the Panhandle of sunny FL. Happy Thanksgiving, Dan!

    Nice photos, Dan. More clouds will be heading your way. It’s supposed to be rainy here today, snow in northern WI.

    You are going to give Linda heart palpitations with your short post. She will be wondering if an alien took over your computer.

  10. Who are you really and what did you do with Dan? :-) Cloudy and rainy, at least of and on, here in northern Illinois, but we’ll be leaving later for Ohio…and it likely will be the same there. Ahh, well, it’s almost Thanksgiving and there’s so much for which to be thankful. I hope you and your family have a wonderful day tomorrow, Dan, (and today, too, of course.) Clouds can make for some great photos, too.

    Wow, Dan, great shots!! Those gray skies add drama and dimension. LOVE the lights from the buildings against the skies. Even though some of us would prefer sunshine, grey skies do have a purpose too!!! It’s sunny here today (YAY) and the small amount of snow left on the ground bye bye! (YAY!) Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I have a post for Thanksgiving coming but it will have comments closed. I intend and I urge others as well, to spend Thanksgiving with Loved Ones and not WP. My stomach is already complaining on the amount of food that is coming. I am on the side of a light eaters but hey sometimes I really indulge. Thanksgiving is one of those times. *burp* Excuse me! Told you my stomach is complaining! LOL <3

  15. I love that Van Dyke and Janet Leigh clip. I love old musicals like that one. I also loved your image of Hartford from the bridge. A beautiful golden cityscape!

    The gray skies with sun peeking out are lovely. It’s time for some good books, movies, and FOOD!
    I hope you don’t have a gloomy week-end in spirit just the skies!

      Never in spirit, Deborah. I got up early to take these photos. I love when the sun breaks trough the clouds. I do enjoy old musicals. There were tons of versions of this song but I liked that the best. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    Dan, “sunny” happy face here most days! We’ll get our winter rain & cold beginning 2017. Weird that many of us in SoCal like the clouds & rainy season. Always check CT & MA weather! Family lives there. Happy Thanksgiving to you & family. 💛Christine

    Those are the grayest skies I’ve seen in some time. Where I lived this time of year is either brilliant sunshine or heavy snow, not much in between. So far we’re still enjoying sunshine, which is making folks nervous — especially those who own skis or ski resorts.

    Lovely photos Dan. While I love all kinds of weather, Hurricane Otto has given me some gray moments. ☹️️And we couldn’t get a last minute reservation to our favorite Thanksgiving dinner at our favorite restaurant. Sigh. Looking forward to Christmas now and a visit from two of my sons. Hope your gray skies clear up! Stay warm.
