Weather Widgets and the Eyeball of the Storm

Can you see the eye?

Northern Narratives has a weather widget on her blog, and I wondered why she did that. But the more I thought about it, the more sense it makes.  In fact, I think it enhances her blog in a number of ways.  When you know what someone is experiencing weather-wise, like snow or rain or a bright beautiful day, you get a better idea of what might be behind their writing.  Weather affects almost everything we do.  Here in Florida, we can spend weeks indoors or risk being toasted by the intense sun.

Rainy days, my favorite, make me creative and spur me to read more blogs, write comments, generate new projects, and bake up anything with cinnamon in it.

Yesterday was sunny and in the 70’s.  It was so perfect, I was compelled to share the day with pictures of pink roses.  They are still open and happy, by the way.

Wondering about the weather of who you’re reading is pretty common.  Don’t we all ask our distant friends about their weather?  And let’s not forget the weather has been newsworthy in another more important way.  It’s not just something to talk about, but rather something to keep an eye on and prepare for.  I had many friends who experienced two storms last month, each having a significant impact.

So I like this widget, and will search for it, or one like it, for my own post.  Soon many of you will be wishing you were in sunny Florida, but I assure you I’ll be wishing I was somewhere with snow on the ground, wearing a hat, breathing crisp, dry air, and watching a crow fly by.

Here is a small gallery of some of the ordinary and extraordinary weather we get here.  All of these were taken by me from my back porch, or as Floridians call them…lanais.  Look for the Eyeball of the Storm.  (Click images to enlarge.)  I hope you enjoy these.

    I love the photos! I lived in Florida for a while (less than a year was all I could take. lol) and can attest to seeing some of the most amazing skies. It was fascinating to watch.

    I saw the weather widget on another blog and liked it! And when it is minus 20F this winter, you will know that is the day for you to come and visit 🙂 Judy
