Dreary Fall Day...

Today was just downright depressing.  The meteorologists all said there was a storm front coming in, but I didn't realize it was going to be a depressing one!

This tree must be a Packers fan... I must chop it down immediately! =)
Louisville has needed rain for quite some time now, and I'm pretty sure we're getting our fair share.  Seeing that is hasn't stopped raining since about 10:45 this morning!  And it's bloody windy out too!

It got really dark, really quick!
Oh yeah, not to mention I spent about 30-45 minutes on the bottom floor of the Life Sciences building at school today... crammed with other students from all 3 floors!  That's not a lot of personal space, if you're trying to imagine yourself a picture.  Why, you ask?  Because of a severe tornado warning!  The only good thing about that, is that we got saved from having to take a pop quiz!  But seriously, the midwest is nuts.  It wasn't even that bad outside.  Well... 80 mph winds are kinda bad, and seeing as thought I don't weigh all that much, it was good to be prevented from going outside and being blown away.

And the storm clouds are still out there... greenish clouds are no good (or so I'm told!)
Anyway, I just wanted to vent about today's crazy weather escapades... and I took a few pictures outside when I got home... wish I had a wide angle lens to capture the scenery properly, but oh well... you get the gist! 

I don't think that tree was THAT bent this morning!

I'm gonna go finish this Powerpoint presentation that I've got due on Thursday (almost done, just need to add my resources!) and make some Chicken Curry Pot Pie because it just sounds great on a day like today!  Be back tomorrow with a delicious recipe!

Looks like we have some potential casualties


  1. I have to say that when I hear stories about weather like this, I'm very glad to live in California!
    Your chicken curry pot pie sounds wonderful...can't wait to see the recipe. I had a frozen chicken pot pie for lunch yesterday and it didn't quite do the trick. Homemade are SO good.

  2. mmmm curry chicken pot pie! I am going to need you to post that ASAP!

  3. Oh dear. We've been having summer like weather here in Austin. It is still in the upper eighties! I can get so down when the weather "goes south". I need to be able to get outside. Thanks for sharing, and I also can't wait for that pie recipe!

  4. There is nothing better for such weather than a good hearty food like the one you made.

  5. Sorry about your depressing day! You took some beautiful pictures though...

  6. Oh, I know exactly what you are talking about! I grew up in the midwest and I remember so many summer days or evenings hunkered down in the basement waiting for a tornado or storm to pass. Not fun. I do love your pictures though. Nice to see some leaves changing, unlike here in Houston. bleck.
