Lately we are back in the winter!
It is spring and it should be an average of 15/20degrees Celsius (59/68 Fahrenheit).
The weather is playing with us!
I guess we should not complain as we are largely responsible of that mess!
In the other hand payback time is hard despite our effort ( I speak in my family name, recycling, not using pesticides etc… But traveling…).
And 8 Degrees Celcius (46 degrees Fahrenheit ) are hard to bare, when your Vitamine D is at its lowest point, and you are longing for sun and warm weather.
All that to see Escape in the sky, when ray of lights are scattering the clouds !
(Tomorrow they predict a 32 degrees Fahrenheit / 0 degrees Celcius….escape is needed….)
Yet Let’s remain positive : what a beautiful image Nature decides to offer us…
That opens up to a reflexion… Are difficult time necessary to lead to better things… I know bad weather is not such a difficulty even if it does affect our good mood, it a more general reflection…. Sister to a french proverbe “après la pluie le beau temps” ( good weather will come after the rain)
Here in the US, we’ve had some very turbulent spring weather as well. I feel for the people in Moore, Oklahoma, who suffered through that traumatizing tornado. Tonight, I think we are having the outliers of that storm here in Virginia. There was a tornado warning in an area two hrs from us, and here, we are having the strangest cloud formations, thunder, sun, rain, all at once…. oh, and frost coming tomorrow night… so covering up the little plants that have popped out of the ground in the garden will be a major job…..
I know, it is so sad and horrible, we followed that on tv, city of Moore. I was once under a tornado when I was 9 years old, in a child holiday camp in Bordeaux, with my sister 7 years old. Thanks to the adults we reached on time the basement of an old castle, trees were falling down as we were walking, water was falling So hard that the level of water was rising as we were walking!
We were all saved but once we got out the basement the next day, every thing was destroyed! And I ll always remember the dead bats all over the floor outside.
It is so courageous of the teacher to protect the children in Oklahoma, yet it is the good side of human being.
My reflexion was meant to reflect this sad and difficult actuality !
And I hope all in trouble and who lost what can not be replace ( life) will find the strength to continue.
Material damages are sad but can be overcome, with a little help of all, and solidarity it can go even faster!
Look at what happened around NY end 2012, my cousin had her house torn away, but luckily no human loss!
If we think about actuality, it is horrible, even if I think we should not give publicity to such acts ( the inhuman treatment that received this poor soldier in the UK 2 days ago), the people doing such inhuman things looking for publicity we should not give them what they want!
But I hereby, send all my though to the soldier and his family!
I hope things will get better where you are as well!
Ps: I have nothing for bats and of course human loss is incomparable !
I was just mentioning it to show the absence of life! After such a climatic disaster.
I can not imagine the horror of seeing human without life !
Pps: while driving yesterday night towards Amsterdam from Luxembourg, snow flakes fell yesterday in the Ardennes ( Belgium)
