Catastrophic Conditions Forecast For Today

I took a photo of the moon last night. Vince spat the dummy a bit as he couldn't get a clear, crisp photo but luckily no such perfectionism got in my way. So here it is for what it's worth. It doesn't even look particularly huge. But what is more interesting is that, although till yesterday the weather was cool but getting warmer, yesterday was hot (35C) and today 13 schools in Western Australia have been closed because of catastrophic weather conditions (heat and strong winds). Seems like summer is here.

That is a strange thing to happen. Nice pic though. We have had rain and clouds all day here, so no moon for us.

They don't often close the schools but everyone is really concerned about fires after the dreadful ones of the last few years.

@JudyEv There are many fires, some arsons, burning in the southeastern US too. I can't understand arsonists.

@JamesHxstatic There is a big one on the south coast so they were right in their predictions. It was starting by lightning. Arsonists are pretty common here too.

It seemed bigger the night before actually. But it was nice to see it.

Last night my daughter an I were watching a spectacular moonrise. Today was a mild November day. I went for a walk (not barefoot) on the beach.

@JudyEv Some of my family and I stood out with my telescope and waited for it to rise. It is always amazing looking at the moon and the sky in general with a telescope but I must admit....I've seen the moon bigger before. There was nothing really super about it. It was still big and magnificent while rising though. Just not as big as the hype from the news led me to believe. We stood out there for 3 hours and it looked even better when the sun was completely down but yeah like I said, I've seen it much bigger before on a normal night. My cousin got a photo of the moon though. Pretty cool. He has some really good camera / telescope thing that he can search the sky and take photos with.

Although it's bigger than it's ever been (since 1948 anyway) it's still only going to be a bit bigger than at other times. It seemed to be really huge here the night before but I was half asleep when it was full on my face and I didn't think about getting out of bed to take a photo.

I saw it last night also, but not yet so big because it was quite early yet. So it is summer in your place?

The hot weather is just beginning. It seems to have been a very long winter and spring but temperatures are rising now.

Your picture of the moon turned out beautifully. It seems just as your weather is getting warmer, ours is getting colder.

@JudyEv Even though I love Autumn, it is a little too cold for me and I am already wishing for spring.

@JudyEv I had a look before I went to bed last night and it looked a tad larger.

We heard an hour or so ago of a massive fire at Hopetoun where we used to go to swim when we lived in Ravensthorpe. It's well to the east of us - almost to the border - but from all the warnings it is big and dangerous.

@JudyEv - I hate it when we get those big dangerous fires in California. Fire can be so destructive.

@DeborahDiane There seems to be no stopping them nowadays. They are just so intense. They destroy everything in their path. It's really scary.

We had a good view of it for sure but I think you might need a certain type of camera to get the best shots.

We have done just the opposite and gone from summer weather to cooler temps.

Thanks. I quite liked the bits of trees around it - much better than a plain old moon.

I like your photo and that is what mine looked like this morning, hazy up in the sky. My early morning photos include the forest behind my house. Very interesting about the weather.

That's a nice one too. I was happy enough with mine although it wasn't very crisp and clear.

I didn't think the moon was all that special. Perhaps it depended where you lived..

We had the mildest fall I can remember in a long time. Still have flowers blooming in the garden and I'm in the Chicago area. Strange indeed. Hiya Judy good to see you. I had to take some time off from here.

when i read spat the dummy, i somehow thought it meant to smoke a bit. then when i looked it up and remembered that dummy is how you call a baby's pacifier, i can't help giggling and imagining vince. heehee. last night, when i mentioned the ring around the moon, i was told it meant rain and, yes, it rained here, today, not much, but still welcome since it's been hot and dry lately.
