Clouds


The night of January 31 up to early morning February 1, 2018

https://www.space.com/39552-super-blue-blood-moon-eclipse-thrills-spectactors.html

Today’s lunar eclipse was the first to coincide with a Blue Moon – a second full moon in one month – in North America in over 150 years. It was also the second “supermoon” of 2018, with the moon appearing slightly bigger and brighter than usual due to its closeness to Earth. And to top it off, the supermoon passed through Earth’s shadow this morning, casting a reddish hue on the lunar surface for more than 4 hours.

After this awesome display, I woke up, got ready to go to school for the first before school care session. Opening my front door I saw the following daybreak.

That Thursday afternoon all hell broke loose over New Zealand with a cyclone battering the country.  There were King tides after the moon’s display the night before.

We survived but some people were not so lucky.

    1. Hy is nie spam toe nie. Maar ek wel gesien op n stadium kon ek nie by julle kommentaar lewer nie. Ek dink daar was so n paar hick-ups.

    1. Jong ek is nie te “out going” nie. My Toek-Tokkels het baie punte al blootgestel. Ek en Kameel praat met tye diep dinge op haar blog wat ek nie sommer op myne wil oopstel nie. Ek waardeer dit dat jy belangstel. Daar is maar n paar geraamtes in die kas wat my steeds gereeld onkant vang.

  3. It was overcast here so we missed the superblood/blue moon. Beautiful sunset, though, Ineke! I missed hearing about your mini cyclone. That doesn’t sound like fun.

    1. It was cloudy here too. I did not set my alarm to wake up because I had to start school again. The cyclone happened that first day back. WE did not have that much wind and rain as in Wellington .

    1. Beslis, as ek so my gordyn oopmaak en die lug so sien dan is ek telkens dankbaar om so vry en ongebonde te mag opstaan en n dag te begin.

    1. Ja, die wind was woes en die reën het op n stadiums met emmers neergekom. Gelukkig was dit nie so erg soos in Wellington self nie en ook in Suid Eiland. Was die middag by die skool toe dit werklik getref het. Hoe was die weer verlede week in Bali? Ons het voor sikloon n hittegolf gehad wat ergste was vandat dit aangeteken is
