A Note From the Road: Philosophical Meanderings - Hurricanes and Storms - Bella Vista Arkansas

Stormy Pacific - a.d. elliott

Here I am, waiting on a hurricane  Henry -

Although I suppose Gordon is just a storm now.  I am looking forward to it, I love the storms. 

I say this from someone who hasn't lived through a hurricane, although I wonder, for those who have a good generator, a few weeks of food and water, and zero risk of flooding, enjoy the awesomeness of the storm?  I suspect a little bit.

Gordon is about an hour late though.  I have noticed storms lack any respect for standard timekeeping. I suspect this is because weather science, like so many other sciences, are more educated guesses than fact.

I believe, this time, that I am in a position to just "enjoy the storm" rather than "suffer through the storm", and I am grateful to be able to say so.

A Note From the Road: In the Garden - Dahlia in the Rain - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Dear Henry,
It has been raining buckets here today, but for a brief moment it stopped and I was able to run outside to take pictures of the raindrops.
I love how the dahlia turned out, I think I am going to make an art print out of it.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Is That A Ghost? - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Nevada - Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

Look, Mom! No cars!


Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (otherwise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!
