Demon Storm's Face For Monday Mystery...

You know how we sometimes get the feeling that our storms and bad weather is actually alive? Want to see a picture of one such event?

Now, I realize that this is only a coincidence, but it's pretty spooky just the same. I may never look at a weather map again without seeing something like this watching me.

Matthew’s Face

Hurricane Matthew arrived near the end of 2016, the first Category 5 storm since Felix in 2007. Matthew caused catastrophic damage and severe loss of life numbering in the hundreds. The impoverished island nation of Haiti bore the brunt, with casualty estimates ranging from around 500 to over 1,300 people.

As Matthew made landfall in Haiti on October 4, the infrared image above was rendered by a NASA weather satellite. The storm’s shape bears an obvious resemblance to that of a grinning skull, seen in profile, with the figurative “eye” of the skull being the literal eye of the storm.Coincidence? Certainly. Spooky as hell? We will let you be the judge.

I hate to say it, but here in Houston, we have dodged the bullet for several years now. The law of averages say that this may just be the year we get hit with another big storm. I hope not!

Coffee out on the patio this morning.

Yikes! Spooky is right. You always come up with some good stuff, HJ.

That looks like an evil monster ready to pounce. Sure hope you don't get hit with a bad hurricane.

JO said...

Now that is scary. I remember as a kid living in NJ the hurricanes that came through were fierce.

See you on the patio while the bearable weather holds.

Hey Momlady...
It is kinda spooky, isn't it? Downright scary, in fact!
Thanks for stopping by today!


Hey Linda...
Knowing that it was designed by Mother Nature makes it even worse, I think.
Thanks for coming over today!


Hey Jo...
Looks pretty bad, doesn't it? Hope we don't get one like that coming into the Gulf. We sure don't need it!
Thanks, sweetie, for dropping by today!

That is a nasty looking storm!

Houston & hurricanes... I'm reminded of that long parking lot that the roads out of Houston turned into when Katrina came by.

Hey Rob...
Boy howdy...that was a mess, for sure! Sure don't want to see another one like that!
Thanks for the visit today!

Hey Bubba, hope when it is our turn it doesn't come looking like that! Too close to looking like the devil himself for my taste. But interesting ~

Big Hugs

Hey Sis...
Not very pretty, is it? Truly is a glimpse of Hell on earth. Bad thing is...there is no way to hide from it.
Thanks for coming over this morning!

Just about as opposite as one can get from "The Eye Of God" photographed in the far outer reaches of space. I don't think man could draw that any plainer, could he? I usually enjoy a good storm (not hurricanes)although I always think of Mom. Kinda glad she never saw this! I might not enjoy the next storm as much though. Love you.

Hey B...
I can go to sleep with the sound of rain coming down, but when a hurricane is around, I stay awake. Don't want to get flooded out. That hasn't been a problem since they worked on the street in front of the house.
Thanks for the visit today, B.

That storm sure does have a mean, ugly face!! You post a huge face and posted pics of faces on trees. You think bigger than I do. . .

HermitJim said...

Hey Dizzy...
I reckon I'm just more strange and weird than you. Maybe a mite more twisted?
Thanks for stopping by today, my friend!
