SkyWatch Friday (my fourth) -- Edouard, the little storm that barely could, before and during

Out our front door (Montgomery, Texas), facing the north. Generally we don't see pretty red sunrises in the north, they are in the east-north-east in the summertime, east-south-east in the winter.

What caused this was that the sun was already up at 5:37. However the sky was so dark in the east with
Tropical Storm Edouard that its red rays would only shine through the clouds way over here, and to the north of us!

You might call it The Day of Edouard. That storm pretty much fizzled before it even got here, inland about 80 miles from where it entered.

And this picture of the rain is from our balcony. It started about 10:00 AM and lasted until almost dark. The picture here was taken at 1:32 PM, after two and half hours of steady rain it still hadn't pooled on the golf course.

We were soooooo dry here that with a light rain like this it all soaked in for quite a while.

And no, we didn't lose electricity, and the wind barely blew.

Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- Adi can . . . . . . . . . . . Play wanna be traffic cop

[large picture] [super sized]

Adi is playing queen of the sidewalk and wanna be traffic cop here. She just knows this fellow coming is going too fast to stop. [I, the intelligent human being, know he doesn't intend to stop.]

I missed getting a picture of Adi closing her eys and putting her paws over her ears!

Sure enough, this guy did run the stop sign! Right in broad daylight, he broke the law! Worse yet he could have run over some of us pedistrians on that golf cart path/sidewalk. Or cars coming out, it was a blind intersection for him.


I thought I'd tell you about the rules of RUBY TUESDAY.
They are real simple:

On Tuesdays you can post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED.

I will might post a NEW Ruby Tuesday each some Tuesdays.

Your photo can contain lots of RED

or a little bit of RED

AND (please) post your link here with MaryT
