~ wild winter ~

~ wild winter ~
*

high winds and rain continue to rage
Mother Nature's not happy as we turn the page
snow has fallen to add to the fears
of people now flooded and are full of tears
who can blame them when they look and see
their lives around them forever gone it seems
Mother Nature addresses the scene
last year it was hot ~ long time ago now it seems
but now we are deluged with no end in sight
sadly an Island and in a terrible plight
troops are now helping to secure and make safe
homes deserted but open to theft
this is a terrible thing to behold
we are/were a civilised nation ~ or so I am told !
my heart goes out to the wildlife too
little creatures suffer just as we do
today is wild as wild as can be
all we can do sadly is wait and see .........................................!

*

a hurricane is on its way this is so so serious for us all . . .

o0o yes indeed Nadine our poor trees sadly will perish in this fllooding
as willows are able to cope of course but our older treasured trees in
our countryside alas will not, we cannot replace these wonderful old old
trees, its very sad. o0o

o0o Hello Norbert ... your understanding of our plight is appreciated,
and for so many ... they have lost their homes .. are terribly distressed
and of course there has been loss of life ... of businesses and homes
and animals ... it seems there is no let up in sight ... more and more is
on its way ... tonight gales reaching over 100 miles an hour have been
recorded ... over Ireland and West Wales ... and we get our weather
system in the midlands where I am ... from Wales .. we are catching this
storm here, right now ... and its very very worrying oOo

please do your sunshine dance for us please as the rain dance
worked ... but now we need the sun ;-) please help ;-)

Certainly depicts the crazy weather we are having, as I listen and hope our roof stays in one piece!

beverleyplaya has replied to Simons-Photography
o0o it feels and sounds as if our windows are going to be blown in ...
I dare not think about the roof ... hope all is ok for you ... we are catching
the weather system that is sweeping across Ireland and Wales and
always we catch the weather system from Wales ... at one point I
thought we really were going to have damage to the house .. for now
all is well ... they say it will die down overnight and then there will be
ice ... I dread to think what the roads will be like .. how can they grit
and salt ...? it will all be washed away ... a nightmare ... hope Harry
is ok ... a stroke from me ;-) oOo

beverleyplaya has replied to Larry Drummond
o0o thanks Larry a rather watery sky as they say
taken through the car window whilst travelling
and then zoom effect and it seemed to fit the
mood of the weather as it is right now, although
this morning a respite and its calm ~ just for
now, but more on the way sadly oOo

I like the zoom
and feel the gloom.
The wind makes a frightening sound.
You're blessed to be on high ground.

My prayers for your safety, Bev. You're in the midst of a wild night.
We deal well with the bitter cold and snow here, but flooding is a nightmare.

beverleyplaya has replied to Dave Linscheid
o0o Hi Dave, yes high ground thankfully but the gales
whistled through the roof and lifted the loft cover which
is very unusual indeed. We are safe but many are not oOo

o0o many thanks, and yes the movement in the car travelling
did set the scene and the x'tra zoom have it a mood that was
perfect for yesterday ~ what a terrible day and evening it was
but today a brief respite thank goodness ... and pleased you
like it ... I actually do not do hardly any editing at all other than
the frame and adding my name and so this time I used the
zoom effect and was pleased most certainly it was perfect
for yesterday ;-) oOo in more ways than one !

o0o Hello .. so far so good but the weather is terrible and starting overnight
we are due to have another bad day of gales worse than the other day and
more rain and snow and there seems no let up to all of this ... it is a worry
