More Eclipse Info

. . . and the Moon Will Turn Blood Red

Eclipses usually foretold disaster.  The Norse believed the wolf Hati devoured the moon and we were seeing her blood.  The blood moon will begin tonight and last for several hours in different phases across the US.  This blood moon also coordinates with Passover and the exodus of Egypt and the plagues that hit Egypt.  Now we understand that the shadow of the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon, casting it into shadow.  The work of the atmosphere does the rest.  Luckily, I have a better camera to get this one, barring a cloudy night sky, we will see.  After temps a couple days ago in the 80's, tonight will be a balmy 27 degrees.

Ah . . . Kansas

Where else can you have wind screaming all day, chance of severe storms with large hail and maybe snow.  It's in the 70's now, high tomorrow of 40's, and a deep freeze Monday night with temps in the 20's.

Denton, Texas Tornado

Tornadoes can be a scary thing.  Especially when wall clouds are less than four miles from your house and the storm just hit a local college.

Special thanks to Ruminators John DeNovellis and Michelle Durkin for keeping me in the loop.

Finally, some rain . . . Storm Chase April 2, 2014

The first storm of the season started while I was selling an old vehicle.  I stood in a parking lot watching a beautiful anvil go up and watched the lightning fall.  The second week of March was the latest I remembered hearing thunder in the new year.  Today There was a slight chance of adventure in the Wichita area.  Not too much to report.  Tomorrow could be nasty for Missouri and Arkansas.
