WEATHER RADAR RESULTS

WEATHER RADAR RESULTS

Looking at a mass of moving green

Splitting in the middle (us between)…

Instead of deluge

Or a sudden summer cruise,

We may be missed as it can be seen.

Not the first time storms will separate,

One lobe still could hit, it’s bearing straight…

Toward this humble nest,

No lower than the rest,

Roll up windows before it’s too late!

GLEEFUL ANTICIPATION

GLEEFUL ANTICIPATION

(to the tune of: ON THE TOP OF OLD SMOKEY)

Out in the Berkshires*

Weather radar shows…

A rip-snorting rain storm

With thunderous throes!

It;s sweeping right for us,

Will be here by morn

With this modern radar

We keep well-informed!

‘Though a soaking rain’s better,

We’ll take what we get…

Now I hear in forty minutes

We’ll all be wet!!!!

* The Berkshires….a lower part of the Appalacian Range, in Western Massachusetts.

PRELUDE TO DOWNPOUR?

PRELUDE TO DOWNPOUR?

Lightning and thunder around,

Portraying just light and sound…

So when will the rains

Pitter-pattering refrain

Come and moisten the ground?

Anticipation nears,

As animals show their fears…

Hiding under beds

Covering their heads,

Possibly shaking their ears?

To the radar most people go,

Whether it is rain or snow…

Technology

Should know, you see,

So that forecasters can crow!

AWAITING WEATHER PATTERNS

AWAITING WEATHER PATTERNS

Feeling so hot and muggy,

The waiting is driving us buggy…

It feels like a storm

When  this warm,

The “delay” is starting to bug me.

It clouds up afternoons

And overnight, hiding new moons…

Weather radar

Says storms are far,

Away from where one assumes.

A cyclone’s strong rotating

People’s lives are exasperating…

Just one bad storm

Makes folks mourn

Evacuation  hesitating!
