Seeing clouds while practicing Social Distancing

IMG_20200421_110307481
On April 21, 2020, while I was staying home during the current Coronavirus Outbreak, I was able to see some clouds in the skies above South Fayette. The clouds were white, dark and grey … and I saw “blue holes” and some “grey holes” in the clouds.

On April 21, 2020, I was able to see some clouds in the skies above South Fayette.  I saw them from my window in my “computer room,” so, as you may have guessed, I was at home while I saw those clouds late that morning.  At the time, the clouds were white, dark and grey … and I saw “blue holes” and “grey holes” in the clouds.  It’s really neat to see clouds in the sky, especially whenever you can see them from a window in your home.  You can still see them outside whenever the weather is nice, but make sure you practice Social Distancing while you do just that.

I saw dark clouds and snow over the weekend!

Now, over the weekend, we had a little bit of everything in the skies above Pittsburgh.  Now, on two of those days, we had gloomy mornings and nice, sunny afternoons.  On Saturday, the skies were generally clear all day long, to say the least.  Now, let me show you what I saw on both Friday and on Sunday.

This past Friday morning, before I started working at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville, I saw a lot of dark clouds in the skies above Great Southern Shopping Center.  Now, in the two photos that I snapped that morning, I also saw some grey clouds and white clouds … and the skies were both grey and blue at that time.  Now, whenever I left work that afternoon, it was nice and sunny outside!  Friday ended up being a nice day after all.

Yesterday morning, I saw some snow on our property.  We didn’t get a whole lot of snow that morning … and I was still able to see some grass in our backyard.  There was a coating of snow on our deck as well … and the items that were on our deck were covered with snow as well.  Not long after I snapped these two pictures, the snow melted, the sun came out and it warmed up just a little bit.  As we get closer to Spring, let me remind you that on some days, we may get a little bit of everything in the same day.

Next time, I will write my 1,325th blog post … and I will give you a hint.  It will be about one of my favorite shirts ever.

Stay safe, my friends!

Look at this cloud!

IMG_20191118_170155644
On November 18, 2019, as the sun was setting in South Fayette, I saw a neat-looking cloud in the skies above the township. The sky here was grey, purple and pink. The cloud appeared to be either pink or grey whenever I snapped this photo.

Yesterday afternoon, while the sun was setting in South Fayette, I saw a rather neat-looking cloud in the sky.  The cloud is mainly grey and pink … and, at the time, the sky was grey, pink and purple.  I hope you guys like seeing this cloud as much as I like showing it to you.

I see some lines inside of a golden sky!

IMG_20191018_183235302_HDR
On October 18, 2019, while I was taking my evening walk, I saw a nice golden sky … and I also saw a few lines in the golden sky. The sky here is orange, pink and purple.

As you probably know already, the sun is starting to set before 5:30 in the afternoon … and I will begin to stop taking my evening walks for a while.  I’ll be doing that before this week is over, but I will try to walk during the day if I’m not too busy.

Now, back on October 18, 2019, while I was walking around National Hill, I saw a “golden sky” above the neighborhood.  The sky was orange, pink and purple.  I did see some nice-looking clouds while I saw the golden sky … and I also saw some lines in that golden sky.  It was probably one of the best things I ever saw.  I figured I would show you this since I won’t be taking too many more of my evening walks in 2019.  I’ll try to take more of my evening walks in 2020.

Here are some more clouds for you to see!

While I was taking my evening walk around National Hill on October 3, 2019, I saw some rather unique-looking clouds in the skies above National Hill.  The clouds here were white, grey and dark grey … and I also saw a shiny hole in the dark grey clouds while I was walking late that afternoon.  I did see some “blue holes” in some of the clouds while I was walking that afternoon.  I also saw some “grey holes” in the clouds just before I finished taking my evening walk this past Thursday.

 

I was able to see some nice-looking clouds in the sky while I was taking my evening walk this past Thursday.  Now, since it’s starting to get dark earlier and earlier, I won’t be taking too many more of my evening walks this year, but I will do my best to take my evening walks in 2020.

Seeing clouds in my neighborhood

As you probably know, I like seeing some nice-looking clouds in the skies about both Cuddy and National Hill.  If the clouds look really neat, I will snap a photo or two, if I’m able to do so.

Now, from July 17th until August 28th, I was able to snap some photos of the clouds that were in the skies above the two tiny towns … and the clouds were white, grey and dark … and they sometimes had either “blue holes” or “grey holes” in the clouds.

I snapped a picture of the clouds that were in the skies on July 17th.  The clouds were white, dark and grey … and the clouds had “grey holes” and “blue holes” in them.

I snapped five photos of the clouds that were in the skies on July 24th.  The clouds here were white, grey and dark grey … and I saw some “blue holes” in some of the clouds that day.

I snapped two photos of the clouds that were in the skies on July 30th.  The clouds here were white and grey … and I saw some “blue holes” in some of the clouds.  I also saw little grey clouds inside of the white clouds that day.

I snapped two photos of the clouds that were in the skies on July 31st.  The clouds were white and grey … and I saw some “grey holes” in the clouds that day.

I snapped two photos of the clouds that were in the skies on August 2nd.  The clouds were white, grey, dark grey and just dark.  I saw “grey holes” and “blue holes” in the clouds … and I saw a little dark cloud inside of a white cloud on that day.

I snapped three photos of the clouds that were in the skies on August 7th.  The clouds were white, grey, dark grey and dark.  I saw mainly “grey holes” in some of these clouds that day.

I snapped three photos of the clouds that were in the skies on August 8th.  The clouds were white, grey, dark grey and dark … and I saw some “blue holes” in some of the clouds on that day.

I snapped four photos of the clouds that were in the skies on August 28th.  The clouds were white, grey and dark grey.  I saw a lot of “blue holes” in the clouds on that day.

I hope you guys liked seeing the clouds that were in the skies above National Hill and Cuddy as much as I did.  I apologize if this post is somewhat long, but I wanted to show you the clouds that I saw over the Summer.  I was busy celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary from late July until late August.  That’s why I wasn’t able to show you these clouds until today.  Thank you for your understanding.

Joseph Visits Kennywood On KDKA Summerblast Day (Part 1)

This week, I’m going to write a two-part blog post for you guys … and, this time, I’m going to talk about my trip to Kennywood, which occurred one month ago.  I went to Kennywood with my relatives for just over seven hours on July 26, 2019.  I went there on KDKA Summerblast Day … and I was able to see several of KDKA’s personalities while I was there.  I will talk about the personalities that I met there in the second part of this blog post, but, today, in the first part of this post, I will just talk about that exciting day in general.

IMG_20190726_124059915_HDR
On July 26, 2019, I went to Kennywood Park on KDKA Summerblast Day. I was there for seven hours that day. Both KDKA and Pittsburgh CW were there, but there were mainly KDKA personalities at the event.

I was at Kennywood Park from 12:30 in the afternoon until around 7:30 in the evening on July 26, 2019.  I was able to enjoy myself while I was at the park.  I went there with some of my relatives … and I was able to ride on the train, which is now part of Thomas Town.  Thomas Town is an attraction in Kennywood that features things from Thomas The Tank Engine.  Now, the train was the only thing that I rode on while I was there.  I just walked around the park and saw lots of exciting things while I was at Kennywood.

Now, while I’m talking about Thomas Town, I was able to see KDKA’s Mobile Weather Lab, which is located near Thomas Town.  I also snapped a selfie with the Mobile Weather Lab while I was there.  Now, KDKA sometimes uses the Mobile Weather Lab during its newscasts … and they generally use it a lot whenever we have bad weather events, like snow storms and things like that.

I saw some nice-looking clouds in the skies above Kennywood while I was there.  The clouds here are white, dark and grey … and I also saw some “blue holes” in the clouds as well.

While I was at Kennywood Park that evening, I bumped into three of my friends … and one of them is one of my neighbors on National Hill.  I bumped into Karen, Josh and Amanda Schultz while I was at Kennywood.  I sometimes see Josh and Amanda on National Hill … and Karen is one of my neighbors on National Hill.

Next time, I will wrap up this two-part blog post by telling you about some of the personalities that I saw while I was at Kennywood Park on July 26, 2019.  I will give you a hint right now.  One of them recently retired after working at KDKA for 37 years.

I have some more pictures of the clouds!

Happy Fourth of July, my friends!  I’d like to talk about some of the clouds that I saw over the past several weeks or so.  Now, in May, I snapped two photos of the clouds while I was walking around National Hill one afternoon.  I zoomed in on the clouds so that you can see them clearly.

Now, on June 19, 2019, I snapped a photo of some clouds, which were in the skies above Cuddy and National Hill.  The clouds are mostly grey, but some clouds were white and some clouds were dark as well.

I saw more clouds and more blue holes recently!

Happy Easter, my friends!  Today, I’d like to talk about the clouds that I saw in the skies above both Cuddy and National Hill earlier this month … and I would like to talk about the “blue holes” that were in some of those clouds.

First, I’m going to show you photos that I took of some clouds and “blue holes” back on April 6th.  The clouds are white, dark and grey … and you may see a “blue hole” or two in some of these clouds.  I also zoomed in on some neat-looking clouds as well.  There may be a little cloud inside of the big clouds also.

On April 9th, I snapped more photos of the clouds that were in the skies above Cuddy and National Hill.  The clouds that I saw on that day were also white, grey and dark … and there were “blue holes” in these clouds as well.

I hope you guys liked looking at the clouds and the “blue holes” as much as I liked showing them to you.  Enjoy your Easter!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on our around April 21st in previous years …
