This is the severe weather season.
Parts of the United States are flooding, including portions of a state I used to live in, Arkansas.
Meanwhile, on Monday, an area near where I live in upstate New York was hit by a possible tornado (this is still being investigated). While our county was not in the tornado area, my spouse (a weather enthusiast) thinks we may have been hit by a couple of microbursts.
There were downed trees everywhere, many lost power (fortunately, we didn't). My spouse peeked out the door just in time to see part of our neighbor's gutter sailing by. Co-workers had other stories.
My mother in law is still without power and probably won't have power until tonight.
And yet, earlier on Monday, it was so beautiful.
Monday (May 1) was such a pretty spring day in upstate New York. I took a number of pictures, and decided to make a collage. I had never used the collage making function of one of my iPhone software programs.
Here is my first collage, for your enjoyment. Some of the pictures were taken in downtown Binghamton and others in a residential neighborhood.
Enjoy the calm before the storm.
