Weather Wonders!

[22] And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
[23] And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
[24] So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
[25] And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
[26] Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

I like to use a global weather program called Ventusky.com and today, just for something different to do, I looked at wave heights around the world.  Was I surprised!  Up north, between Canada and England, there’s a place that looks like it’s impossible to navigate a ship through.  Today, it has 32 foot waves!  Look!

You can discover what the weather for your area will be like, up to 9 days  ahead of time.  Snow, waves, wind speeds, temperatures, many choices.   I used this last year during hurricane season, to see what the predictions were for my area.

Look at how fast the winds are going, high up over the world: 

JOB 28: [23] God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
[24] For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
[25] To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
[26] When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
[27] Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
[28] And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Early Spring Gardening

Today I planted some Echinacea seeds from Ferry Morse, in a 70 pellet Jiffy Seed Starter tray I got from Lowe’s.  The tray is super easy to use, just pour water in the empty spaces on each side, and let the pellets plump up.  Then, you might need to tear back some of the netting, to plant each seed, but after that, set the tray outdoors for sun, and keep the pellets watered.

These seeds should sprout in about 10-12 days.  Hoping.

I’m hoping to get all of these plants into the ground this week, and get the garden weeded and mulched.  Here in the South it’s spring, and pollen time, and time to plant your gardens.  Flowers for the garden:
