Lately, over the past couple of months, I have crossed paths with the wind, the rain, the hail, the snow, the sunshine, the night owls and nature’s musical dawn awakening.
Spring brought a flood of water standing in the neighbors yard when the drain clogged.
Rain kept coming and going as I photographed images in between the raindrops.
Rain brought the hail which was larger than life, causing damage to roofs, house siding, cars and whatever it came in contact with.
Kayaking by the rivers edge shows evidence of erosion caused by flooded waters along the Illinois River.
Of course living in the Midwest, I have witnessed how much nature does not keep a calendar on the weather patterns. We saw snow fall in the typical Spring months this year on April 27th.
And… of course after the rain, the rainbow…..
Nature’s musical dawn awakening came from the singing birds of feathers and other prey from the skies above or on the ground. The mosquitos were quiet 🤫 and did the most damage. “Wake up,” they must have been thinking.
You can see evidence of the snow from up in the air at the end of April 2019.
Plenty of unexpected weather around the globe has wreaked havoc, destroyed homes and caused casualties.
Here in my area, when you hear a tornado siren warning or emergency alert to take cover, please do so.
