Super-Sized Phenomenons in 2014.

08-12-14

These days, it’s not just fries and soda that are super-sized! Well, yesterday I wanted to write about Sunday’s Super Moon and my walk on Monday morning, however, my boss, who was wending his way back from the Upper Peninsula, had a work emergency, so we began our Monday at 7:00 a.m. with over-the-phone dictation. We finished up, and, though I had an agenda, one quick glance outside told me the rain was moving in earlier than the mid-afternoon time frame the weather folks had predicted. I didn’t even go walking, and, when the rain started a short time later, as you know, it never stopped. I think I counted three, if not four, back-to-back torrential downpours, and, as I write this blog post, still another storm is brewing. I feel for the people with flooded basements as we lost alot of furniture and belongings when we had a bad storm like yesterday’s in the late 60s. I wonder if the weather forecasters look into their respective crystal balls and see any more super-sized weather disasters besides the dire predictions that I’ve already heard for this coming Winter? It seems we will plunge into another polar freeze, but not as much snow. Sigh. Speaking of super-sized phenomenons, even the moon goes into that category. I hope you caught a glimpse of it Sunday evening because the conditions sure were not wonderful to see it last night. I took a picture but it didn’t do it justice. Our next Super Moon is September 9th and I sure hope there are no other fractious weather disturbances simultaneous with its arrival. Looking at that big ol’ moon, it seemed like you could reach up and touch it – it was that close. It kind of made me wonder why, as a child, I really believed my folks when they told me the moon was made of cheese. Hmmm. Swiss? Pass the crackers please.

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.
