It Might be that it is the last of May 2012 we can prognosticate “in these-here parts”!
Never-mind not watching television for the past two-plus years.
I ask my neighbor what the weather is to be?
I forget judiciously,
To dial it up on the PC.
He says, “About a hundred percent chance of rain!”
Then I drive to gas-up my “for sale” to-get-to-Nina (reason), car!

Tonight’s feature is a reality show and main event is the group thunder, , lightning and rain moving in seemingly from all directions.
I let my mind and right hand sync, flying freely to write this account, Of the precipitous action,
As occasional lightning illuminates my writing pad.
Thinking of Nina’s “flat” as I wrote the word “pad”, lol, I briefly remember accurately another of our many Skype “dates”.
I know, you ask, “have you ever really MET her?” To that I say “Yes.”
Now back to the air, moving with distant thunder rumbles which do not threaten me.
Heck, I always was one to like to sit outside in the face of a storm moving in!
It is similar to daily living as an adult!
Wind gusts sway the tall trees to and fro; widely and like a windshield wiper.
Similar trees close to my front stoop,
Protect me as my canopy.

Only a sideways wind occasionally makes the raindrop kiss my flesh as I wish Nina would forevermore, truth be known.
I’ll tell anyone the truth!
Blow, wind blow!
Take away my pollen-induced shortness of breath Asthma wheeze. It is why I welcome you!
Wondering how a Ukrainian thunder storm would go;
Hand-in-hand with her holding me close.
Lost car ambles down my dead-end street;
Gustafo makes sway after it.
“Lost In Space”, I always call these vehicles who come this way.
Sometime I say, “Damn, Life!” because I am not where and with who I want and need it not to be this way.
“Work WITH me for a change!”
I survive the initial onsloaught of heavy rain on a Thursday night;
Still not wet under my natural umbrella.
Why can’t I just go at-will where I want to be?
Then just as I look up on a clear night and the moon and distant planets remind me;
Mother Nature has final say as distant, hated plaintive freight trains announce their approval again.

                                               By the time you read this, the sun may have peeked through long enough that these words are moot.  Or maybe where you are reading this from it is sunny most of the time unlike here in most of the eastern half of the U.S. and especially the southeast where I only remember one sunny and springlike day since this month began,  and that was Monday March 1st.

I hate when it is cloudy all the time with temperatures steady in the mid-40s;  I am one of those people for whom sunshine is a necessity.  It is bad enough that I moved to a state that is landlocked several years ago for the first time in my life, and that I miss the ocean like a long-lost friend, but these clouds day-after-day is beginning to wear on me.  And it is not even  raining! At least if it is going to be cloudy, then it should RAIN!! [I’m sorry, lost it for a minute…] It is just freakin’ cloudy, dreary, boring, depressing and difficult to imagine that the first day of spring is only days away and St. Patrick’s day is tomorrow.  Green looks so much better under sunny skies. What has happened?  Has the atmosphere stopped moving the weather form west to east?  Is the Earth now becoming more like our nearest neighbor, Venus?

When the weather is stagnant like this, I don’t even want to get out of bed; mood melancholia magnified sapping my motivation, and January-like hibernation beckons again.  In short, “this weather sucks!”and the timing couldn’t be worse with so many of us needing some really good news because we are so financially fragile nowadays.

I remember when I was a kid back in the 1960s and there was a rumor that they were seeding the clouds to make it rain because of a perceived “drought” over much of the country and this makes me wonder about that all over again. Or the “old wives tale” that when they shoot the space shuttle up over the earth, it messes up the weather patterns for weeks, the vapor trails disrupting the flow of the winds.  Is there a shuttle in orbit right now?  Hmmm.

The weather channel guy says  there is a “blocking northeastern low pressure system in the upper levels of the atmosphere”, yeah well get it out of there! This is when a practical application of science needs to be applied to help unblock the weather and move things along. This IS “the future” right? Can’t they do something constructive like  keep ample sunshine peeking through for me and you?
