Papa’s World – Red sky in the morning – Sailor take warning! It came in torrents – all day!

It was beautiful to start – soft pink glow – but you could feel it in the air – a storm was coming!

The sky was a soft pink color – but you also could see the strom clouds.

It was so peaceful walking outside to take some pictures – no sounds – not even birds.

My place to sit and sip my coffee – it is from here I walked out to take the pictures.
You could feel the storm in the air.

Later it began to rain – I was able to sit on the porch as the wind was coming from behind the house.

The rain turned heavy and the wind blew it away from me.

Later that afternoon we discovered a leak on the roof and reported it – they came the next day and repaired it!

I feel we were very lucky to have been home when this happened and not away on one of our trips.

It rained all day and into the night – stopping in the next morning for them to fix the roof.

RED SKY IN THE MORNING – SAILOR TAKE WARNING
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – early morning – cloudy – gray clouds – is a storm brewing? Yes – it rained all day!

Looking East – toward the sunrise – Ocean Isle Beach – four miles away.

It looked and felt like rain – warm – slight breeze –

there is one house left to build here on this street before the turn –

and they have already framed and covered it in with plywood and starting the shingles for the roof.

There are four maybe five more that are very close to closing

and then the construction continues beyond what you see –

and winds around to a dead end that we can see in a distance from our back yard.

You can just see through the woods where they are building.

Hoping that all the construction on the street back there is done by the end of the year!

Then it moves to the opposite – the West end where they are putting in infrastructure!

The stormclouds on the West side and at the end of the street is where the infrastrucure is now going in!
Looking SW and beyond those trees – far back is the new infrastructure – we can not see it!

That tree line is protected – and can not be cut back or down!

Which is one of the reasons we choose this location!

Full of wildlife – natures sounds and yes – I believe there are snakes in there!

So – I am always looking before I step = better to be safe – but this is also full of birds –

so we have now put up a bird feeder!

We love the natural setting!

The Sun made a effort to peak through – but the clouds kept coming!

So – it went – hour by hour and then a gentle rain started – getting a little bit heavier – and lasted all day!

A good soaking rain – no lightening or thunder!

Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

Papa’s World – morning sunrise – blue skies – late afternoon – thunder – lightening – RAIN!

Morning sunrise – calm – warm – partial clouds – then blue skies – a start of a beautiful day!

It started out with sunshine and we walked the beach – and the neighborhood –

But – the storm was out there – coming up from the South – West!

We did get all our steps in and had dinner – a beautiful day here in S.C. North Myrtle Beach – Ocean Keyes!

Our beach walk in the morning – on Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.
And then 12 hours later – it blew in and it started to rain!

The sky turned from blue to gray – clouds were rolling in – thunder and lightening!

The wind picked up – Sherry started to go out the front door – the side of the condo the storm was coming from!

She had a hard time holding the door so she closed it!

The lightening was bad and the thunder shook us.

This was the first real storm in the day light we have had since being here!

I have to admit – it got a little bit scary!

The wind just whipped the rain almost sideways!

This went on for a couple hours – and lightening on and off!

I do like a good storm to fall asleep with – lightening – thunder and rain – but can do without the wind!

Papa’s World- journey to University of Lynchburg – grand daughter- soccer!

The start of the game – cold – 35 degrees – steady rain – SOCCER!

We traveled five hours NW to Va. to Lynchburg –

our grand daughters first home contest of the delayed season!

Maddy Myers – number 13 – waiting for the start of the game!

As a Freshmen – she played in 13 games – now a Sophomore –

the first game she had a assist and two near misses in a 2-0 victory!

Out family – father Mike – Mother Debby – sister Ella and grandma – Sherry – Ella will be attending Randolph College in the Fall to play soccer – right across town and will compete against her sister for two years!
Hard to see but she is in the middle far side above the Y about to pass the ball!

She carries a HIGH GPA – and as a Sophomore – because of that GPA –

was able to have a room in the buildings right behind her!

She is a determined young lady – her last two years of travel –

she drove herself 65 miles each way so she could compete with the best in the

Metro D.C area in Loudoun County – a hot bed of recruiting for college soccer.

Steady rain – but we stayed watching her and the game.

The entire team waiting for the start of the game in the cold and rain!

Near the end of the game – a 4 to 1 victory and 2 – 0 on the young season!

Papa’s World – Fluffy clouds – Rainbows – storms are coming – watching the sky

I am a sky watcher – the sunrise and clouds –

Planes – blue skies – and dark skies.

I watch as storms roll in – only to disappoint – no rain!

Since coming here to our daughters and son in laws house

it would take me two hands to count the number of times

I looked up and there it was – A RAINBOW!

No rain – but it must be in the distance!

Sometimes I was able to get a picture –

other times not!

Watching the skies – billowing clouds –

You think – is that going to be rain?

And then you see –

Another rainbow – no it does not seem like rain!

But then –

Through the sunlight – comes the rain –

and behind the house was the rainbow.

FLUFFY CLOUDS -RAINBOWS – STORMS ARE COMING –

WATCHING THE SKIES!

Papa’s World – the skies of a storm coming – beautiful!

I walked outside – we are staying with Tammy and Marcus.

They were on vacation – Sherry & I were alone.

Everywhere I looked to the sky –

was just awesome!

OUT FRONT FROM THE PORCH!

Sherry told me that she had a weather alert!

That is when I walked out onto the front porch.

I turned to the left and saw this after looking straight to the West.

Our new car parked alongside the road

as they were sealing the driveway the next day!

Then I walked to the edn of the porch and snapped this picture.

It was different in every direction!

I then went back inside and out the back door –

Again it was different!

There was yellow – orange – purple – blue – white – gray

and some deep pink!

The storm was suppose to start around 9 PM.

Flash flood alerts –

Stay off the roads –

High winds and take shelter!

The calm and beauty before the storm.

Later that night it hit –

Lightening – thunder and lots of rain.

I love a storm – and it will drum me to sleep!

And this one did!

Midnight – Sherry thought to wake me up and move the car.

The next day we were suppose to have the driveway sealed.

So – I had parked by the road and ditch.

She was worried the ditch would fill –

So – after trying to wake me up to no success

Off she went in the rain and moved the car back to the driveway!

She is a angel – me – for some reason I would not wake up!

We had FIVE INCHES OF RAIN IN THREE HOURS!

She had 18 alerts on road closings –

wash outs and rescues being taken – nine people!

I slept right through it!

The calm before the storm got me!

Always loved a good storm –

Next time I vow to be more alert!

Papas World – with trees comes shade and “LEAVES”

We have beautiful trees- three Red maples

and one I do not know what it is!

They provide lots of shade along the side

and in front of the house.

We also have three evergreen trees-

one large pine and three crepe myrtles!

BUT – THIS TIME OF YEAR – ” LEAVES”!

The Sunrise
and all those trees alongside the house

So – we decided to blow them into a pile along the sidewalk.

And then we would pick them up and stuff into bags.

It was chilly – around 38 degrees – but the Sun was out –

blue skies – white puffy clouds –

a good day to rake and stuff!

Here I am with my stocking hat on
stuffing leaves into the paper bags

I had my blower and pushed the leaves onto the sidewalk

Note: This same sidewalk we have to shovel snow when we have it!

It runs in front of the house and along side about 150 feet!

Did I tell you I really do not like snow and ice! LOL

Plus no cold – snow or ice please!

It took us about one hour and we filled up SIX stuffed bags!

I had already done THREE bags a week ago!

Stuffed – ready to set out
on Tuesday
that is the day
they pick up lawn waste

The yard was green once again –

I had mowed the second leaf fall early last week

I do this to mulch them up and put nutrients

back into the ground!

It is all part of living
in a four season’s
part of the country

Now – to the present – Christmas lights are up

All three trees are decorated

All the mangers set up and the little lighted churches placed

The inside decorations are done

the storage tubs back in place in the garage

And for twenty four hours it rained!

I went out front to gather up the paper

and there it was –

” ON TOP OF MORE LEAVES “

The rain had brought down more leaves!

The leaves are all wet from the rain –

There are still leaves( about 20 % ) on the trees.

We will have to wait to blow them but I also am thinking

I will once again mow and mulch them!

I am not a TECHIE

We still have time – being retired – you have choices

Bundle up – go outside

mow or rake or gather

or just stay in – turn the fireplace on

turn on the lights on the trees ( NO LEAVES THERE)

grab a book and just relax

That is what I call
