Postcards from Kentucky….Stormy Weather!

The past week….stormy weather in Louisville!

The thunder storms here….so….loud! Every time we get one of these storms I want to go back to the West!

I experienced the Monsoons of the desert (now they call them Nonsoons because of a lack thereof). A Monsoon storm can put you a bit on edge…but these storms here are crazy scary! I think I need some nerve tonic when these storms hit. Wait….I think they might call that Bourbon! Ah….now I understand why this is Bourbon country! Break out the Southern Bread Pudding and Bourbon Sauce!

This post is a quick ‘post card’…before and after the storm…

I have always said there is nothing like an Arizona Sunset. I haven’t seen one here in the South that comes close….but there are some beautiful colors in the sky after a storm. The last storm exited with a beautiful pink and orange hue in the sky. It made the barn look orange.

Take notice of the image on the side of the barn. It is Ivy growing through and up the side of the barn and it looks like a ghost!  See how scary these storms can be? Even the ghost looks scared!

This past week was also a storm of change. I started a new job…working in Property Management for a company in downtown Louisville. It will be a great opportunity to become more familiar with my new home…Louisville.

Other news from our Kentucky home…

Poppy has a birthday coming up. I haven’t been baking much lately because of the heat…but we have to bake birthday cake. Next post…Coconut Cake…Poppy’s favorite!

Until then….

Wishing you blessings and shelter from the storm….

and Happy Trails….

’til we meet again!

      Hi Darlene! Thank you! It is always great to know that the ‘shares’ are enjoyed by others. I enjoy yours also. I kept a praise journal for quite a while but not recently. You inspire me…thank you! Wishes for a blessed day for you as well. 🙂

  2. It is SUCH a stormy day here today btw, its SO cool!

    • Victoria says:

      Storms can be quite welcome…unless it is the tornado or severe kind! 😉 I love rain…just trying to get used to the extrremes here in Kentucky.
      Where are you?

      • Charelston SC, so we usually get those big end of the day humid thunderstorms that push through in 30 mins or less and are really cool to watch 😉

      • Victoria says:

        I hear Charleston is a beautiful place! I had a friend in Phoenix from there. I plan to visit some time. Enjoy the weather! 🙂 I will stop by this week to see what you are up to at your blog. Many blessings…thunderstorms and all! 🙂

      • Charleston is beautiful, it’s a fantastic place, I hope you get to see it soon! You have a great week too and I look forward to seeing what you’re up to too!

    Hello, Victoria. Thank you for visiting my blog in Spain and the comment. Nice photographs you have taken. We could do with some rain here. 🙂

    • Victoria says:

      You’re welcome Ralph! You live in a beautiful place..perhaps that will help with your challenges. Thanks for the compliments…and hey….doesn’t the rain in Spain… fall mainly on the plain? Maybe move to the plains? Thanks for the visit…have a blessed day!

      • Ralph says:

        Hi Victoria. Very boring on the plain. At least here in the mountains we have birds of all different sizes from buzzards to wrens. A rail train passes by ever so often and the views are terrific. Have a nice weekend, what’s left of it 😉

      • Victoria says:

        Ah yes…mountains are always good…I miss my Utah mountains! Enjoy your weekend as well! 🙂

  4. Sheryl says:

    Wonderful pictures! I can almost feel the storm coming and then intensifying as the pictures progress.

    • Victoria says:

      Thank you Sheryl! I’m glad that the photos did a nice job of depicting the movement of the storm….which was really ‘intense’. So glad you stopped by to enjoy the storm. 🙂 Wishes for a day full of blessings!
