Papa’s World – on our first night staying with our daughters house – STORM rolls in!

We had arrived and settled in from Winchester – Lake Holiday – Cross Junction – our other daughters home.

The day was uneventful until late afternoon – the sky turned deep gray – and the clouds seemed to be rolling!

They were scary – rolling across the sky!

A storm was coming!

It was like this in front of the house also – the wind picked up and we could hear thunder in the distance

to the West.

In the distance – sort of pink clouds – but overhead – dark gray!

Lightening began and then the rain came!

The wind picked up – looking out the front window – I could see the major portion of the storm –

coming over the hills toward us – flashes and then the thunder.

Then the first time we lost all lights!

The electric went out!

The rain came in hard – beating against the front windows!

The lights came back on!

The thunder continued and flashes of lightening!

Did not seem to phase the newest member of the family – MARLEY!

The electric went out several times and came back on – the rain got harder – later we learned trees had come down

and one house was struck by lightening out Winchester way and burned down.

It was a severe storm – first one of the late spring – and then the lights went our for good!

We all decided after it calmed down – with no lights but still a little daylight to see –

to just go to bed while we still could see.

Later – the electric came back – I think it was out a couple hours – and then we had to get up and turn lights off!

A eventful first night back at our daughters house in Leesburg Va.

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!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

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 – Sheltering – warm days – seems normal!

We finally had some warm weather a couple days in a row!

Friday – Saturday and Sunday – low 70’s to low 80’s.

Beautiful skies – blue – white clouds and sunshine!

After Sunday supper – I sat down on the front porch and noticed

the clouds were coming in from the South West.

Going to storm I thought – but it was warm –

and I told Sherry if it does and the temps drop

we will have our first Spring Thunder and Lightening storm!

THE GRATEFUL DEAD
To all you deadheads out there!

We had watched our church service streamed live

enjoyed a great breakfast

and decided to walk to our town center 1 1/2 miles away.

So we could get in our three plus mile walk!

When we got over there after walking through the 15 acre park

we saw they had set up the Farmers Market –

with the whole width plus some – the street in between the booths

and each booth had yellow caution tape in front

so you could not get close.

You had to point and tell them what you wanted!

It was very well set up with a large table in the middle of the street

with hand sanitizer on it to disinfect your hands before and after

you made the purchase.

Since it was late and they were closing up –

I do not know if it was cash or credit card or both.

But – next week we are going as they had hanging baskets for $10.00

and Tomato plants for $2.50

( I always buy one to see if I can produce better than the Tower Garden)

I can’t!!!!!

The storm came in later at 10 PM. with lightening and Thunder

and a little bit of rain.

This morning it is warm 59 degrees.

Everything is lush – green and our roses are starting to bloom!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
