Yesterday's Storms Clear the Air

Last Update: April 12, 2021

We had a wild and stormy Sunday

Yesterday, much of the southeast, including Florida, weathered some pretty intense storms. Although we were on the edge and didn't get the intense hail or any tornadoes, we had some pretty good winds (measured around 60 mph gusts) and a lot of rain. The lightening strikes were considerate though. None of them caused our electric to go out.

This morning, it's warmer and the air feels so different. We'll get more rain this week. And we need it, so I'm not complaining.And I have to admit that I actually enjoy the energy I feel from those thunderstorms. The lightning show is pretty good, too.

Life is like that. Sometimes we need a little stormy activity to clear the air and provide some much needed cleansing.

I find that's true with my websites, too. Sometimes I need to see through the storms and allow for some renewing. I look at those trials as opportunity, a way to avoid the mundane.

How do you manage those stormy times? Do they challenge you to find the clarity? How do you avoid feeling defeated? Or do you feel the energy from them and use it to burst forward with that renewal?



Sometimes the greatest storms bring out the greatest beauty...Life can be a storm, but your hope is a rainbow and your friends and family are the gold. ---Steve Maraboli









Keep working through the storms-- the rainbow awaits!

Look at that rainbow - its been so long since I ever seen one of those of nature's beauties.

That been said unfortunately, sometimes the storms stay too long- like we are still experiencing here. For our business path, getting through the storms that will come is always easier and better if you have the support like we do on here at WA.

The rainbows, ala green paper monster, awaits if you get through the storm of challenges and never quit. To that great mindset 💪

When my wife and I finally got settled in after being discharged from the service, other than Clothes we owned 2 things. Our Car and a television set that we purchased from Sear's in Alaska. We were staying at our in-lays place until we found an apartment. We had some chores to take care of. Lightening struck a pole down the street when the television was on. Now we were down to the car only. Ever since then when an electrical storms is coming I turn of all television's even though they are on a protected Strip. then I read a book.

That's a good point, Ed. Shortly after we moved to Florida, we had a major T-storm that took out a few electronics in my husband's office. Since that point, everything is on surge suppressors and battery backup units. He runs a computer business--fried equipment is not an option 🙂

So true, Diane. Your post reminded me of that great song, originally by Gerry and the Pacemakers - "You'll Never Walk Alone". Particularly of the line - "At the end of the storm, there's a golden sky". We should all definitely focus on that when encountering stormy weather!

Hi Diane, I was watching that on the news last night. It sure did wreak havoc.

I love the saying by, Steve Maraboli.

All the best,

Yes, those storms were quite something, Michael. If it weren't for the damage and even one death (a teen stepped out of her car and onto a live power line) they might have been even more incentivizing. Still, I reap the energy.
