Not sure what's up with Mother Nature, but two straight days of Tornado Watches is exceedingly uncommon around here, not to mention scary. And the constant Severe Thunderstorm Warnings all day... Got drenched earlier coming back from the store. Yowza!

So what crazy / uncommon weather has there been around you??

This is due to lack of rain recently. It's been in the 100s and dry. I wasn't in SC when Hugo happened and was a little too young to remember, too.

@niffler that's crazy!  I never remember it being THAT hot in all the years I was down there.  I'll have to see if I can redirect all the rain we got here to help you out down there!

WARNING: There are spoilers below, so if you haven't seen Avengers: Endgame yet, DO NOT READ FURTHER!

Before I begin, a question: For those that have access to them, do you prefer IMAX or Dolby Digital Cinema? Just curious what people think of the two different formats.

So, finally got to see Avengers: Endgame this weekend, and it did not disappoint. Even though it...

Thank you to @SIRENA for tagging me for this challenge.

I had to think first for a good picture of me and this is still one of my favorites.

This was taken during a friends wedding we attended in Monk Fryston, UK. My daughter (who stole the show during the reception) was only 2 and a half at the time (she's 15 ½ now

For those in North America, how are you handling the significant change in the weather the past couple of days? I know where I am, it was a nearly 40 degree change in weather from yesterday. It was a nice 48F here yesterday morning, but only 9F this morning, made worse with the high winds. We also 'lucked out' and stayed on the rain side...

Well, first, I'm sorry I didn't post this update sooner. Been really busy between work and other home stuff.

From my last post, My Dad had been hospitalized the last week in August for what turned out to be pneumonia and sepsis. We went over to see him for the Labor Day holiday (9/2 - 9/3). Honestly, he looked really bad and...

So, who has see the new SG features that were rolled out today?? It threw me off at first. I was in looking at my notifications and saw a new section about "Your Account is Empty" and "Add Money", then another section for "Transactions Only".

It didn't make sense until I went into one of the sets and there is a new "Tip" button...

Happy Birthday to me! Yes, my birthday was yesterday and was one of the big milestones.... 50! I'm half a century old!! Ugh! When did this happen! Overall, it was a pretty good day and had a nice dinner at the local Japanese Hibachi restaurant. Hopefully 50 will be better than 49!

Well, it's supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year....

Spent the weekend getting the tree up and the first set of present wrapped. Of course, that was after running around doing last minute shopping and sending my FitBit to heights it usually doesn't see! Then again, I'm paying for all the extra walking and shopping.

Thought we had a

@midnight - I was phenomenal, but it makes me want to time travel to next May to see Avengers 4!  I think some of the best parts were seeing the interactions between the characters... Thor and Rocket, Spidey and Strange, etc.  Of course, they keep saying Ant-Man 2  (in 2 weeks!) holds part of the key to Avengers 4, and Captain Marvel (next March) is the other part.  Can't wait to see all three of them!
midnight:
YES the interaction was certainly the best part. I also loved the comedy I really appreciate the more laughs these newer avenger movies seem to produce hehe. So glad I found another fan!!

@user8992 The clouds one was 'supposed' to be of the solar eclipse, but didn't have the right filter on....
