Rumor has it it’s supposed to be rainy this weekend. Stay tuned, I guess.

If you’re tuning in from America, or keep up on US current events, you’re probably aware of a massive winter storm bearing down on the east coast at the moment.
Last night the storm blew into town, dumping close to a foot of snow in my neighborhood in about 12 hours. The snow drifts on my windows this morning were pretty impressive to say the least.
This afternoon the storm switched to warm drizzling which helped pack down the snow a bit and then switched to freezing rain as the sun went down. Now the storm has switched back to heavy snow. Stay tuned, I guess…
It’s been a pretty perfect summer here in Charm City— a mix of hot and sunny with a healthy dose of rain. But I will admit it’s been a disappointing year so far for the big storms that blow in with hurricanes. The upside of course is everything has grown like a glorious jungle and swimming outside is just beautiful (I’ve been able to do laps out in the sun since April or May and look forward to doing so for several more weeks).
Despite the beautiful sunny weather, I still keep hoping for a nice big storm. So while I sit inside today working on a mix of things, I keep glancing out the window to see if the overcast skies have transitioned to storm clouds. No such luck as yet. In the meantime, here are some of my texture photos that make me think of the rainy days I keep hoping for:
So it’s hurricane season (or has been for weeks but has finally been picking up). And that means, among other things, potential for good storm clouds (perfect for watching and picture snapping). Having grown up with hurricanes, I actually look forward to the crazy storms. While I wait for this year’s batch of end-of-summer storms and ‘canes, here are a few of my favorite storm cloud pics from the recent past:
How about you guys? Do you like watching big storms?
It’s hard to believe, but today it was warm and sunny enough to be driving around town with the windows down. Even though it’s November, Baltimore is, as usual, somewhat reluctant to admit that it’s fall and that winter will be on the way soon enough.
The leaves are still hanging on though. And some flowers too….
Oh well. At least it’s fun while it lasts…
Update: Like these photos? Now they’re available printed on pillows & totes here on Print All Over Me.
For most of the day my neighborhood, usually a bustling mix of residences and local businesses, has been eerily empty. The rain has been falling steadily for a few hours now and the world outside my window remains ominous. I’ve seen, sailed and driven through plenty of bad storms, but the silent stillness is always the creepiest.
If you’re in Sandy’s path, readers, stay dry and stay safe.
It’s been a rainy, somewhat reluctant spring, weather-wise. Today was no exception, complete with tornado and flash flood warnings.. most other days are moody, stormy mornings with sunny afternoons and stormy nights. The cloudy skies have been beautiful though.
This past weekend brought the first peonies of the season though, which always puts a massive smile on my face:
Last night brought a snowstorm the likes of which the City has not seen in years… in ’96 I spent a week snowed in during the big storm… today does not look much different, except the snow keeps coming so much faster
The USPS lived up to their promise of “neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night” today, yay mail!
