September Skies

Keeping September is usually our rainy month, and has not let us down this year in the Coastal Bend. The skies have put on a show of their own. These were snapped with my phone, but you can see the cloud formations are really cool.

Padre Island: Where Snow Birds come to Warm Up and Sea Turtles get Stunned?

Winter Texans: We Love You, but Please Leave the Arctic Cold Back Home

The crazy harsh North winds were whipping up clouds on the still warm water.

Wow! It is only November and we just had our second Arctic Blast. Normally, in November, we get a “Norther” which normally results in a highs in the 60’s during the day. We had a dramatic drop 30 something degrees which resulted in highs in the low 40’s. The waters on the Oso Bay and Laguna Madre were literally being swept by whipping winds resulting in strange clouds whipping up over the water. The wild thunderstorms just added to the drama.

Now, Winter Texans, you are more than welcome here in the Coastal Bend, but please the crazy cold weather back home! Brrrrr! However, later in the week, we are expecting highs in the low 70’s again. 🙂
