" When I'm stuck with a day 
that's grey and lonely
I just stick up my chin 
and grin and say oh

The sun will come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on 'til tomorrow, 
come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow
You're always a day away "


A weather front 
came through our islands 
from the West
bringing rain and wind
from an unaccustomed direction.

When the winds grow strong
our electricity can be spotty.

Our trees, plants and roofs
are braced for 
North East Trade Winds. 
So a few trees, roofs 
& plants
blew away
taking wires down.

But NOT a Hurricane!

it's 71F [22C]

Maybe it's the years
I spent living aboard
our boat,
or our open-air coffee shack
back on the Big Island,
but big rain & wind
make me anxious.
[How many times
have I run from
tsunami threats,
or hurricane?]

Glad my snow days
are behind me!

So how are YOU doing?
Are You susceptible 
to weather?

Keep warm in your heart.
Here is all the sun I can send.
My love is enclosed-
               fondly, cloudia

Good Morning, Cloudia.. beautiful images and quotes. The weather seems to be crazy lately.. This morning we have temps in the minus figures..So a picnic indoors sounds lovely, lol. Have a happy Sunday!

It looks like a beautiful day for Hawaii! Right now we are braced for a blast of really cold weather this week, plus we had some power outages. Brrr...

Fireblossom said...

It was MINUS ten degrees when I woke up, and not supposed to rise above single digits all day!

That dish looks yummy.

TexWisGirl said...

hoping power can be restored to those who lost it, soon. but what a nice temperature to go with it!

I love the last picture looking up through the palm fronds. It was in the high 80s or low 90s yesterday and the day before. Today is in the 70s, so quite pleasant. When the weather was so hot we had a dry desert wind, which is unpleasant, but not scary.

I rather like gray and rainy days. I always did as a child because it meant I could stay in reading rather than having to work outside on the farm.

RedPat said...

The weather can be scary, Cloudia! It is -24˚C here at 11:30 am which is crazy cold. Hope your power comes back on soon!

Cloudia said...

Thanks Dears! <3

Aloha Cloudia, I know you're surely in sunshine today, (thank goodness you're not in harms way) your post this morn has warmed my deep freeze (I wish snow was behind me) I'm ready for any season that doesn't include winter! For me I'm living a double life- smack in middle of winter/dreaming of summertime. :)

Karen S. said...

Sometimes I think when the power goes out, that means, break time! and head out for a walk.... or candle light..... !

Weather front came through the D.C. area, too. 9 degrees out wind gusting to 45 mph, snow on the ground, etc.!

Love that comfort food.

Bob Bushell said...

The pics are excellent, cheers Cloudia.

Couture Carrie said...

Thanks for the sunshine, darling! And that dish looks so yummy :)

The pictures are a delight!

Laura said...

I think it must be easily as windy here today in NH… we survived yet another big snowfall, temps are dropping… so far we still have power. Glad you survived your stormy weather too!

William Kendall said...

I really like that Alice Walker quote!

We got to a high of -19C here today, with windchills making it feel in the low minus thirties.

I love each one of these images.
The top one is my favourite:)
