What we now know: A solar Eclipse occurred on August 21st, 2017, an event that was described as the “Great American Eclipse.” It was the last total solar eclipse since February 26th, 1979. Scientists have predicted that the next total eclipse in the US will be April 8th, 2024. Wow! The weather prognosticators have been spot on when it comes to predictable weather patterns.
The Gurus of hurricane tracking and predictability, have kept you and I updated on the latest and most powerful hurricanes to visit our generation. Texans and Floridians have braced themselves for two of the most horrific storms to ever pass our way, Harvey and Irma. The National Weather Service has been vehemently urging people to take cover.
In the wake of Irma’s diabolical journey toward the US, I must say, she is not welcome here! Since the start of hurricane season, so far, we have had eight hurricanes baring down on us from all over the place. As well as earthquakes that have caused significant damage as well.
The best story line in the midst of all the atmospheric chaos, is the story Harvey and Irma Schluter, who have been married for 75 years! He is 104 and Irma will turn 93 in November. The Schluters have been retired for many years, and happily retired I might add. Given the ferocity of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017, this will probably be the first and last time the names appear in tandem. And that is absolutely perfect with me!
To the Bride and Groom, Harvey and Irma, enjoy your twilight, as we enjoy the daylight and better weather conditions. We give thanks that we are still Standing on the Rock!
