Mother Nature Rules

Leave a comment

Mother Nature can create such devastation and at the same time, she creates such beauty that all you can do is marvel at both of them. As hurricane Ida hits the south I think of the strongest winds I ever saw in my life and that was just this past summer when a tropical storm passed over Ocean City. And that was nothing compared to what a hurricane can provide.

After that one episode, I have a respect for wind that I didn’t before. Living where we do the chances are fairly remote but if one does head this way, I’ll be getting out of its way.

With rain in the forecast for the next several days, I think I’ll concentrate on some indoor shooting.

I’m mesmerized by the storm footage. The power and scope of this storm are impressive. Or maybe they all are and we are just seeing more footage now because everyone has a camera. I try to do my part to capture nature’s beauty. But I’ve also captured its nastiness, with local flood shots.

Lots of people needing lots of help. Think I’ll start with the Red Cross.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I wish for the safety of all the personell who stay during the storm to police, attend to the injured and those who open the streets and restore power in the Gulf Coast.
  • The good thing is everyone has an opinion. The bad thing is not everyone deserves one.
  • Wishing my two teachers in the family a good and safe year.
  • I can’t wait to hear those magic words, PaPa.
