Be safe – Be Considerate – Wear A Mask

Welcome, family and friends to our daily journal. Share it with your friends. It is a way of remembrance for us and a point of connection for you.

Too cloudy to see Venus or Mars this morning.The darkness before the dawn.


The tropical depression developing in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to become Tropical Storm Hermine sometime on Wednesday. TODAY’s Dylan Dreyer says there are hurricane watches in Florida cities along the Gulf, with the possibility of storm surges and flooding. –NBC News

The first year that we wintered in Texas, they were in a multi-year severe drought. Sitting for coffee with a group of fellow RVers, some snowbirds and some Texans, the topic of the drought was brought up. One of the Texans said, “We need a good hurricane.” I commented that I’d never heard those two words put together before.He explained that a big storm in the gulf could bring much needed rain into Texas. That would make It a “good hurricane.” “It is an I’ll wind that blows no one any good.”*Looking at our futurecast, there may be just such a good hurricane coming. Now I just hope the winds and waves prove to not be destructive elsewhere while bringing moisture our way.God bless and g‘day.

‘it’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good’. This is first recorded in John Heywood’s A dialogue conteinyng the nomber in effect of all the prouerbes in the Englishe tongue, 1546:

“As you be muche the worse. and I cast awaie.

An yll wynde, that blowth no man to good, men saie.
Wel (quoth he) euery wind blowth not down the corn
I hope (I saie) good hap [luck] be not all out worn.”
