Storm Warning

GOD hates Toronto

Through reading Cordelia’s Mom’s submissions, (as well as her other fun and interesting posts) I have been introduced to another entertaining and helpful lady.  Marilyn Armstrong, over at her Serendipity blog site, occasionally posts a photo prompt as an inspiration.

She calls it the Serendipitous Photo Story Prompt.  You can write a short story, or a long one, about her picture.  It can be fact or fiction, or even poetry.  It’s okay if it inspires you to use one of your own photos, or a picture you found on the internet.  It’s even acceptable if you post an interesting picture with just a caption, or a comment.  Hey, if that isn’t Serendipitous, I don’t know what is.

Locally, May was one of the driest on record – no rain for the first 29 days – then we got an entire month’s precipitation in two days.  It wasn’t as bad as Texas, or Germany, but it had its moments.

I got the above picture from the son’s friend, who had to be in Toronto.  We were 75 miles away when this happened, and I’m glad!

  1. That’s quite a picture. Yikes. We had a similar May here. Dry all month and on the 31st — Graduation Day for my granddaughter (wouldn’t you know it?), the heavens opened and a month or two of rain fell out. It had (to no one’s surprise), a seriously dampening effect on the festivities. Good story. I’m going to link this to the most recent post so more people will see it!! Thanks for participating!

      Thanx for linking me in. I hope to do this occasionally, using your photo prompts, but I wanted to publish this picture first, because it was just so awe-inspiring. 🙂

    That’s a UFO using clouds as camouflage.


  3. The monsoon’s started here. Pune is not getting the normal rain while Mumbai is flooded again this year. It’s a man-made disaster. Mumbai was at one time a series of islands. There’s been massive landfill and building over the years. That filled in much of the natural drainage of rain water to the sea, blocking it up. Today it’s been raining all day. I hope it keeps up as the reservoirs need filling. Our Society of flats is high and dry thank goodness.

      You reminded me of ‘The Rains of Ranchipur’, which I watched in 1955.
      I just saw a video about the Mumbai-thing happening somewhere in Colombia. The poor filled in ditches and built shacks, and flooded half a town – and still complained when officials razed the slum and drained the water. Keep as dry as you can. 🙂

    When the aliens came, it was from another dimension. They had waited until the right moment because they knew what effect the demensional-transporter would have on weather. It was not subtle.
