YouTube and other things

Feb 8, 2020

There’s been some changes made… which is a good thing! All of the links – except amazon – have been added to the side bar. Plus one, YouTube.

(No Fishing Aquarium Ornament)

I finally made the jump to youtube, and if you would like to see what I have, just click on the image to the right that is labeled “YouTube”. I might put amazon on the side bar as well, when I get the chance.

I’ve only got a few videos and/or slideshows their at the moment – but, like always, I will be adding more as I have time.

(zombie fish aquarium ornament)

And since I’ve been busy doing this, I haven’t gone out to take any photos with my cell phone today! I know, it’s Saturday and I know how you oh look forward to today, but it is what it is! Nothing I can do about it!

🙂

Oh well, progress has been made and I’m a happy girl! There’s some other changes, which you will get to see tomorrow, as well.

I’ve gotten so used to adding photos and links to Picfair and Pinterest that I don’t know what to do anymore… 😦 …ah, yeah, this gives me time to actually focus on what I came here to do in the first place – my photos!

Tomorrow is…

National Cut The Cord Day
National Toothache Day
National Bagel and Lox Day

What’s left…?

Feb 7, 2020

You’ve seen the picture of the day…

breaking news…well, local news anyway…cell phone photos

and even some words by me…

so what could possibly be left to share?
On this day Friday, February 7 of the year 2020?
Well…

something you haven’t seen before
taken in 1996, Utah, USA

Today is…

the 38th day of the year
the 6th Friday of 2020
the 48th day of winter
There are 321 days til Christmas
And there are 42 days left til spring
The zodiac is Aquarius
And the birthstone is Amethyst

Today…

Today was the day, in 1959, when Buddy Holly’s funeral was held in Lubbock, Texas (He died Feb 3, 1959 in a plane crash – the day the music died.)

And that’s not all
There is so much more
More to see
More to do
More to explore
That is not all there is
On this Feb 7, 2020

The wind has been whipping today, but like I said earlier…it could be so much worse. We could have two or three feet of snow on the ground (some places got 18+ inches today), trees could be blown over (in some areas there are trees down), we could have no power (it was reported earlier that there were over 5,000 Marylanders without power), we are safe and dry.

So no matter how bad things seem
It could be worse
There is always something
to be grateful/thankful for

Tomorrow is…

National Boy Scouts Day
National Iowa Day
National Kite Flying Day
Global Movie Day

Hope you have a great day!

no. . . winds of change

Feb 7, 2020

no words
no thoughts
no description
no

winds of change
~ HCMorris ~

So we’re still under a high wind advisery… there haven’t been any trees or major branches come down. So all is good, for now anyway! I’m thinking – for the most part – mother nature has done her job in cleaning out the trees in the last couple of years. Plus cutting down the dead ones. . .

The winds have been gusting to around 40 MPH here, and there have been reports of tornados south and east of here. But we’re good and safe here!

So until next time…

Hope you have a great day!

Photo animation

Feb 7, 2020

Pretty cool! It was pouring when I took this photo and the animation on my phone, applied to the photo, just kind of proves it!

They’re still calling for high winds, but so far no damage! Which is a good thing

😀

Hope you’re having a great day so far!

Tornado warning/high wind advisory…

Feb 7, 2020

ugg…what weather! At least it’s not snow, I guess! If it were snowing, we’d have three or four feet (or more) on the ground right now! They say about one foot of snow for every inch of rain…I’d say we’ve gotten about three inches of rain.

So any way, we’ are definitely keeping an eye on the sky today!

Frederick Wind Advisory Wind Advisory in effect from 9:00 AM EST until 6:00 PM EST. (2-7-2020) Source: U.S. National Weather Service Less …WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM EST THIS EVENING… …DENSE FOG ADVISORY IS CANCELLED… * WHAT…West winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts around 50 to 55 mph expected. * WHERE…Northern Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick MD, Southeast Harford, Northwest Harford and Northwest Howard Counties. * WHEN…Until 6 PM EST this evening. * IMPACTS…Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects. Tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects.

Both my son and boyfriend got tornado warnings on their phones, but the notice above is all I’ve gotten. So… what to do? Just pay attention. What else can I do?

All photos were taken with my cell phone

Of course, I went out and took pics…and got drenched! I should have worn my boots.

We definitely don’t have to worry about too little water…maybe too much!

That is a river that I definitely do see. But don’t worry, it’s mostly away from the house. Remember the berm? We have one that we made to help divert the flood waters away from the house. I was going to link to my post FLOODING, but I can’t find it.

I might head back out, as long as it’s not pouring and the winds aren’t too bad, and take some more photos!

I’ll keep you updated – but for now, know that we are safe (The tornado warning for our area has been taken down, but we still have high winds.)

Hope you have a great day!

Squirrels…

Feb 6, 2020

It’s such a dreary, gray, rainy day… I went out and took a photo with my cell phone, but I didn’t like it. So you get squirrels instead!

Hope you enjoy!!

Stop in the field

(I may snap at any moment funny photographer tee)

while driving
exploring
the country side
in Pennsylvania
we saw this sign
a remnant
of what used to be
STOP!
the field
doesn’t want you here
~ HCMorris ~

I’d love to show you here what I have linked to in the photo above, but I can’t do that as of yet. So, if you want to see it you will have to click on the photo above. Eventually, I’ll be able to add amazon in the side bar, but I haven’t figured out how yet! Sorry about that!)
