Tag: <span>Mother Nature</span>

Gardening yesterday, had more planned for today but Mother Nature decided the plants needed watering. Typical. So we’re off to the cinema later so I can drool over Angelina Jolie and Louise can drool over Brad Pitt… and Angeline Jolie. In her own words it’s “great being a woman”. Personally I don’t think it’s fair and she’s just being greedy, and anyway Brad isn’t my type.

Big Blogger continues a pace. Rumours of me running naked around the garden may have some substance.

And now a little word about online etiquette.

I have a “Contact Me” link over there on the left, some people don’t and their comment box is the only way you can contact them. Trackbacks are for links to other posts that relate to the current post. Please don’t abuse any of the aforementioned methods of communication. Ithankeweverymuch.

Hg drives through a rainbow and reminds me that I didn’t mention the thunderstorm we had in Glasgow on Thursday. Didn’t last long but was directly overhead and loud enough to shake the windows.

It prompted the usual discussions about the most extreme examples of weather we had seen and a couple of people admitted they would love to become a stormchaser. My wife falls into that category, as do I but to a lesser degree.

It’s that whole “power of nature” thing proving that, ultimately we are very small and fragile and really had better stop pissing Mother Nature off. I get the same kind of feeling gazing into a starry sky, particularly from somewhere remote with little light pollution. Having your entire field of vision filled with one “thing” is quite something and I usually have an almost vertigo like reaction to it.

So, would YOU be a stormchaser? What’s the most extreme/unique/breathtaking weather phenomenon you’ve seen?
