AUGUST 10th – AS THE WORLD ROLLS ON

Share Your World – August 7, 2017


What was the last URL that you bookmarked or saved?

Wunderground.com. It’s the local weather station. Local for everyone, actually because it’s based on everyone’s private little weather station in backyards, fields, and other non-official places.

I often get better information from them for my immediate area. The bigger weather stations give me the weather for the region, generally Worcester or northern Rhode Island … but we live some miles away.

Even a few miles and the weather can be surprisingly different. It may be pouring  five miles up the road and sunny here. Or vice versa, of course.

Do you believe in the afterlife?  Reincarnation?

I don’t know. I really don’t know. I stopped thinking about it because I haven’t the slightest idea. No one has come back from the other side to tell me, so … until then? I haven’t any idea.

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?

These days, blogs are fine. I’ve written technical manuals. Instructional books. One novel. Lots of short stories. Mountains of letters.

Whatever I’m writing, it’s the right thing for me to write. So, for now, this is the right thing for me to write but maybe next week, it’ll be something entirely different.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Nothing inspired me this week. A few things genuinely pissed me off, but that’s not what you want to hear. So we’ll stick with “sorry, not an inspirational week.”

  3. Weather?? I listen to my bones creaking and then look out the window for confirmation.

  4. I have local weather on my phone and iPad, but looking out the window is all I need. Mr. Swiss is the “expert”. Sometimes it rains at the front of the appartment and we have clear skies on the other side.

    • In this region, looking out the window remains the best guess. TV station are often embarrassed because they use complicated predictions, but FAIL to look out the window. Not noticing that there’s a heavy rain while predicting hazy sun is such a no-no.

      We lost the head of Israel’s meteorological department after he announced further drought while a massive rain storm with the power to wash cars from the parking lot was coming down. That’s a literally true story.

      They should stop building weather stations without windows!
