Sunshine And Rainbows

The first drops of life roll out of the sky… A sign of things to come… Cold fronts coming from the west… But the clouds are from the south… Puffy and cumulus… Probably full of rain… Coming to wash the earth… Of the filth and pain…

Winter weather often lacks moisture… Because the forest lacks leaves… powerful cold fronts crawl across the country… And tap into the gulf of mexico… Warm moist air is pulled up the east coast… Mixing with the cold… And we have snow…

Sometimes this front originates in the south… Starts off as heavy tropical rains… Eventually the storm will break free of the tropics… And rush up the coast… When the warm gulf air meets the icy grip of the north… We have snow… We have a nor’easter…

Tracking is everything… And computers make observation easy… When you know bad weather is coming… Go out and observe… Observe the trees… Observe the animals… Observe the energy… It’s all around you… You just have to learn how to see… The weatherman has taken all of the guesswork out of the equation… We now know when it is going to storm… Now take that computer information and relate it to real life… Fill in the natural blanks… Learn how to read natures map…

Distant rain has a smell… Wind often pushes that smell out in front of the storm… One of the first signs of things to come… Something I always notice… Something you should too… Because it’s not always sunshine and rainbows… When it rains it pours… But nature always informs those who listen…

Learn that a rainbow doesn’t always signify the end of the storm… It can also signify the start… Not every storm is destructive… Not all destruction is bad… It’s possible that destruction… Can create beauty and life…
