Thunderstorms and Tornado Warnings Change Our Plans

4/3/14 Thursday Arley, AL (Hidden Cove-TT/MA)

We were close to leaving this morning when we saw they were serious about the cold front coming from the West, possible tornadoes along with the thunderstorms due in Memphis area today. Memphis area is our destination. Okay, it’s possible the weather could just disintegrate into simple rain storms. Still, why drive into possible winds/rain/tornadoes if you don’t have to? So I talked John into staying here until Saturday, when the weather predictions are for sun and nice weather. Besides, we have sewer here (won’t in Cherokee Landing) and satellite reception (may not at our next place). So we have 2 days to just take it easy. Thus it took much of the morning to get a call through (thought of our Wilson cell phone booster to help get reception) to TT to get our reservation dates changed.

We just sat around in one form or another all the rest of the day. The sun even showed up late afternoon. Got lots of laundry done while I could.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
