The Sky Right Now

As is typical for Edmonton weather, we have another thunderstorm. The forecast says thunderstorms all day until about 11 pm. This is the sky right now:

Nice, huh? The clouds are behaving like a very slow boil. They’re moving around a bit, but slowly. It’s interesting to look at, but since it’s started raining, it’s hard to see how the clouds really look.

Well, tomorrow is Canada Day, and we’re hoping to see some fireworks. Thankfully, the forecast is good for tomorrow. But it’s the only good day over the next six days. Every other day is expected to be stormy.

It’s a good thing my daughter now says she likes thunderstorms. She’s not afraid during the day.

We Had a Great Thunderstorm, My Daughter Disagrees

Watch this video. Watch it all the way through. There’s a surprise ending you may enjoy.

It was an interesting night. She refused to go into her bedroom or the master bathroom. She could see lightning. She fell asleep on our bed with my arms around her and her face buried in my chest. She was scared!

Funny thing that I didn’t mention is that my mom was sitting near the window, and my wife told my daughter that she was a superhero because she’s close to the window. My daughter said she can’t be a superhero. Only Daddy is a superhero.

I guess I’m her superhero.

I hope you enjoyed the video. Comments are always welcome!

I Love Weather

As a Canadian, I love to talk about weather.  I guess it’s because it’s so changeable in Canada.  Here in Japan, it tends to be more stable.  Summer days are hot, sunny, and humid.  Winter days are sunny and cool.  But spring and fall can bring rain with some instability.  September tends to be quite stormy with typhoons coming through (one coming next week).  Last Saturday, we had quite the storm. Take a look.  Keep watching, especially to the second half of the video.  I was very surprised about what happened.

I love a good thunderstorm.  It’s one of my favourite kinds of weather.  What kind of weather do you like?
