Wind and Wunder Blogging

By: quartzfireweatherblo , 4:37 AM GMT on December 29, 2016


Today is the only day there is. Be kind and gentle but never allow those who would seek to hurt you to be anything else than monsters in human disguise n.b. as spoken by the most wonderful human being I have had the pleasure to know and love.

Idabel 1-day Average 4-inch Plant Available Water yesterday 0.74 posted 6.30 am Today

The 1-day Average 4-inch Plant Available Water map is based on the 24-hour-averaged plant available water for the top 4 inches (10 cm) of soil under the existing vegetation at each Mesonet site for the previous day. Plant available water under other vegetation types may differ. Plant available water is the amount of water in the soil that is potentially available for plant uptake. Technically, it is calculated as the amount of soil water at matric potentials above -1500 kPa. The maximum possible plant available water varies between sites due to soil differences. Most plants experience water stress when less than 50% of the maximum plant available water remains in the active root zone. This map is updated once each day between 7 and 8 AM Eastern Time.

QF - Today i have started the episodes of the " beginning of the end" for our Wulife

Friends and bloggers hops from one blog to another saying goodbye and sending us off with good wishes
below is what i did in update today i wanted to share it here most especially to you both who was the reason to be here.

Now that the end is drawing near id like to thank everyone for having me here. Thank you WU for the opportunity .given to us to have a place to share and exchange information on weather, photos and all other topics that interests us and we feel we want to share thinking others would also get interested into . We have shared a portion of who and what we are and found friends here too. We shared our worries for each other each time we get severe weather. I could never forget how i was able to tell my friends to brace and prepare because i heard that typhoon Hiaiyan would be category 5 and it was the first time they heard about a category 5 typhoon and they never believed me but they did take Yolanda seriously. The next day they told me how did i know it since it was then all over the news that it was a category 5 typhoon. I told them i learned about it in here and then they too became lurkers here. I was proud showing them around WU and showing them typhoon tracks..
Soon a portion of what we used to love doing here would be gone and i think all we can do when we come is is like getting inside the library and just read with out making a sound - the librarian would say hussssh even before we open our fingers to type. Here in this type city we are typekative as we are talkative in talk city. ^_^.. I know we all loved what we were doing here and so I would like to remind everyone that in times of trouble when we are most a alone, the memory of love will see us through..

John Denver %u2013 Perhaps Love Lyrics

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don't know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it's cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you
Songwriters: J DENVER
Perhaps Love lyrics %uFFFD BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT US, LLC, Reservoir One Music, RESERVOIR MEDIA MANAGEMENT INC

and this is YellowOrangeRose aka YOR signing out
soon

Yes Soon
"Soon"

Soon, oh soon the light
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you
Our reason to be here

Soon, oh soon the time
All we move to gain will reach and calm
Our heart is open
Our reason to be here

Long ago, set into rhyme

Soon, oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here

Soon, oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here

I have loved this song since first time you had me listen to it - listen how lovely are the instrumentals. . . love it much.

WATCH: A bright green meteor just streaked above the USFlash... boom. It took just seconds for a bright green fireball - and apparent meteor - to streak across the dark sky over Wisconsin at about 1:31am Monday morning.

But thanks to the magic (and paranoia) of our digital age, there's tonnes of security and dash-cam video of the event, and it's already all over the internet.

oh, my goodness. It allows me to see a choice to enter your blog again.

The profile editing might be fixed now, if you wish to try it again.




Partly. When I set my location and clicked it in the profile area it went to a Personal Weather Station in Idabel, OK

Lastly: Are there any apps to measure Snowfall amounts? I went to some NWS site last night and it said no recent snow in Idabel but there are 2 or 3 inches on my lawn melting slowly. I also tried this snow melt to Liquid Water and nothing there too!
