I think I may have mentioned before that the Goodyear Blimp lives just north of me, and I can even read the giant “Goodyear” printed on the side of the hanger from my balcony. The blimp usually cruises up and down the beach for the tourists, but occasionally I’ll hear the buzzing noise it makes and be able to look outside in time to see it fly right over my building. Kind of a cool and unusual thing to see. So if you’re following this blog like you should be (wink*wink), you can expect to see a picture of it every now and again. Here it is putting itself to bed…
The sun sets in the Everglades here. So I could hardly believe what I was seeing when this massive gator head appeared one night! I can only imagine what the Seminoles would have thought if the gods presented something like this to them years ago.
This is the view looking north from my balcony. It was the only evidence that the sun actually set that night, since the rest of it was blocked by clouds of a passing storm. This is what it looks like when the sun sets in the north instead of the west.
Another wet grey day here in the Sunshine state, so I thought I’d keep the sunless theme going. I took this one a while back when I was driving back from the beach in Dania. Not sure what that blue streak is, I have never seen anything like it before. A friend suggested it might be a chemtrail (for all you conspiracy theorist) which makes sense considering the location of the airport is right around there.
Today was a day of rain. Not the usual crazy stormy weather rain, but just plain old rain…constant all day rain. It was enough to spark a flood watch for most of South Florida and to cause Fort Lauderdale to cancel the final day of the air show. Seeing grey days like this makes me wonder how I did it so long in Oregon where it would rain like this for weeks on end without a break. It’s not easy to live without the sun, but many have learned to do it. I know I did, but obviously I could only do it for so long. Here’s a sunless sunset pic and a reminder of what’s on the other side of the clouds.
