Good Morning Everyone,
This morning I woke up to a quiet rain that made me want to stay in bed and sleep. It wasn't long before the softness turned into a downpour with thunder and lightening.
As a kid I grew up in a farming community and often the weather was a topic of discussion. Farmers worried constantly about too little, or too much rain; too much sun, or not enough for their crops. They were apprehensive if their crops would survive a storm.
It seems everyone has an interest in the weather these days with so many towns and cities being hit by tornadoes, hurricanes, sunamis, earthquakes and other natural disasters. When I was a kid, we stood out in the front yard and watched tornadoes hit in the countryside. These days it's not safe to do that, and we run for cover.
Part of the reason so many towns and cities are being hit by disasters is because we have built up the countryside and there's not nearly as many open spaces for these calamities to hit.
Here in the midwest, I see a drastic change in the weather patterns. Many things can be causing it. Modernization may be one of the big culprits.
What's the weather like in your area? Here in the midwest the weather may be forty one then seventy or ninety the next. We are having huge swings in our temperatures.
Have a good week. See you next Sunday.
Sandy AKA Sandra K. Marshall
