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