Partly Cloudy

Big cloud is big...

Big cloud is big…

picture dayIt’s Wednesday, which means its time to take a humpday journey into The Nest’s eyesore of a photo album for another Picture Day post.  Oh, I see many of you are already prepared and have your eyes covered….

This week’s photos were taken by me at the baseball game I attended on August 24th of this year between the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals.  From my vantage point in the bleachers, I was treated to a great view of this rather imposing looking cloud lingering over the top of Busch Stadium to the south.  Geez… what kind of nasty weather might be in a towering cloud with those kind of heights and an anvil formation?

Bob Ross better get out that barn brush for this one....

Bob Ross better get out that barn brush for this one….

As the huge mass of upper air water vapor closed in overhead, it became more and more obvious it was just part of a relatively harmless high cloud formation.  Attention grabbing and serious looking, but nothing to seek cover from…

In flipping through my photos this morning, I thought my cloud pictures were a decent enough metaphor for our current situation.  I seem to remember this same storm cloud was also spotted looming on the horizon eight years ago.  And eight years before that.  And eight years before that. And twelve years…….

Well, you get the picture.

It takes all kinds to make the world go round.

It takes all kinds to make the world go round.

As long as we remain a country where our leaders are elected by people with diverse viewpoints and different challenges to their everyday life, regime change is going to be inevitable.  As are the frightening looking clouds that always accompany it, yet proceed to pass by with all of us still here, ready to move on to what’s next.  And I think we’ll be around to see the next cluster of cumulonimbus change build up in the western sky whenever that may be….

Keep calm and fuck it all!

Keep calm and just fuck it all!

I’ll be back with another photo lecture next Wednesday…

  1. In my nightmares, President Trump kinda looks like that last picture and he’s saying “Trust me! I’ll make everything great again”

  2. I saw a rainbow while riding through the storm in the morning… it looked a little like photoshoppen it was nearly too perfect… but I take it for a good sign for all of us (no, there was no pot of gold, not even a check. but a dead hedgehog…… we can’t have all what we want, right?

    Well, it’s finally all over after all those months. Now it’s time for the aftermath!

    Very cool cloud pictures! The few times I went to major league games, I think I spent more time watching clouds and airplanes than I did the game. Open stadiums give such a wonderful view of the sky.

    I think angry koala should have a place in the new administration. Something that terrifying might keep people on their best behavior!

    • As long as you’re not sitting within range of getting beaned by a baseball, cloud watching is an excellent way to pass time between the action! I took a handful of pictures of it for about an inning or so because as it kept getting higher and higher in the sky, it got neater and neater looking!

      Cross Koala and Rainy Skunk would make a great tag team in government. I shoulda wrote the koala in as her running mate!

    The could looks like a dog, I really thought that you were going to make that the point of the post! I could say that was still the point of the post, but that would be an insult to dogs…..

  6. Keep calm and stay in the car.

    While the rest of the country was electing Trump, we were legalizing pot in Massachusetts. It’s important to have ones priorities in proper order.

  7. All I can say is that koala definitely has WAY better hair…………..way.
