Tiny Flowers

The tiny flowers bloomed on a bush along my driveway, I didn’t know the bush would produce them. The palm photo was also taken today when it was nice and sunny and about 72 degrees. Now it’s overcast, super windy and there are rain squalls over the valley that are shooting bolts of lightning to the ground. Our weather is on drugs…

Another Street View

This photo was taken on a different street in my neighborhood but still looking west. Those clouds are looking more and more ominous this afternoon! Yet no rain? I can always hear the rain beginning via my skylight over the dining room… Wait, I hear raindrops now! 😂🌴

A Quick Trip

I made a very quick trip the the Seven Eleven this morning, grabbed these admittedly redundant photos along my path. The streets weren’t completely deserted but certainly had much less traffic. The dark clouds are beautiful aren’t they? I hope you are safe and well!

Stormy Sunny Morning

Good morning from the valley. I walked to the end of the driveway to dump some recyclable items in the recycle bin and noticed this very attractive photo opportunity so in the house quickly for the Nikon! Above 6500 foot there are weather alerts for heavy snowfall in both the Spring Mountains and the Sheep Range. Down here all we get is rain but there hasn’t been too much rain overnight which is a good thing. My home is at 2800 feet above sea level. I hope it doesn’t rain hard here since I have minor flooding on the side of the house!

This Was Yesterday

The screen shot of the National Weather Service website’s forecast for Las Vegas shows a very different weather pattern for the next several days. Honestly, I don’t want the rain here as badly as it’s needed here in the desert southwest. It reminds me of the daily gloomy conditions of Michigan too much… Rain Rain go the hell away. Don’t come back any other day.

Tiny Weather Station

Here’s a look at the weather situation a couple hours ago, still the same just now, the windows are open allowing a really nice breeze through the house. 😎❤️

Sunny Fronds

I spent some time in the backyard today soaking up the wonderful 82 degree breeze and sunshine. My Latino neighbours behind me playing some traditional Latino music but not too loud for a change.

Other neighbours outdoors working on their yards also enjoying the sunshine. A quick chat about my electric leaf blower from much more than six foot apart. My windows open allowing a soft warm breeze through the house.

I thought why not grab the Z6 and take a few more redundant palm tree photos? Another wonderful day in my little piece of Las Vegas. 🌴🌵🌞

People Are Out and About

Las Vegas is a city of about two million people, many of them are still out and about doing their daily things. My drug store and pharmacy now has signs taped to the floor with blue tape forming a line with a six foot spacing. Why six foot? Overall things seem very much normal around my area of the city which I’m grateful for but let’s keep things in perspective, be safe.

Today is sunny with 82 degrees. 🌴🌞😎

The World is Still Beautiful…

Today I set out for a few items which I did find, then headed back home for more self-imposed isolation. It was wonderful to get the heck out of the house for a change of scenery! As you can see there are many folks out and about today, in the next set I drove through the park and was amazed at how many folks were out and about today. The world is still beautiful!

If you noticed the banding in my photos recently you’ve got a good eye. This is because I now reduce image sizes way down to around 200kb rather than upload them at more than twice that size which has already saved a ton of storage space in my account. Sorry, I think this sucks as it’s not displaying my amateur photographs as well as I would to see them on this blog.

Palmy Skies

These photos were taken yesterday around mid afternoon after a few rain showers had moved out of the valley. The palm tree looks really nice at this angle doesn’t it? This morning I made a food, water and beer run and found good success at a local chain market store. I added more water to the supply I have stashed and bought several new food items to add to my stockpile. Wow, how things have changed. I believe this situation will pass in time. Be safe my friends!
