Corner view: Rain

This week's corner view theme Rain is perfectly timed. It has been raining and raining and raining.

More corner views about rain here.

In my previous post Orange Monday I wrote that there was orange alert. In Spain they use these weather warning definitions:

Missing, insufficient, outdated or suspicious data.

No particular awareness of the weather is required.

The weather is potentially dangerous. The weather phenomena that have been forecast are not unusual, but be attentive if you intend to practice activities exposed to meteorological risks. Keep informed about the expected meteorological conditions and do not take any avoidable risk.

The weather is dangerous. Unusual meteorological phenomena have been forecast. Damage and casualties are likely to happen. Be very vigilant and keep regularly informed about the detailed expected meteorological conditions. Be aware of the risks that might be unavoidable. Follow any advice given by your authorities.

The weather is very dangerous. Exceptionally intense meteorological phenomena have been forecast. Major damage and accidents are likely, in many cases with threat to life and limb, over a wide area. Keep frequently informed about detailed expected meteorological conditions and risks. Follow orders and any advice given by your authorities under all circumstances, be prepared for extraordinary measures.

  8. Palm trees, Malaga? Stay dry Dorte!

  9. Hi Dorte! Oh! Loved it all, the stormy beach with the rain, and all of the meteorological admonitions (admonitions is my word for the week). if I had not experienced some quite violent weather in my lifetime, I would find all those warnings quite funny!

    I've been so busy and not visited for awhile but what a treasure trove of things now I'm back! (Where to start?!) Anyway, all your pictures quite beautiful with food, or without! Any chance I could borrow/post your turquoise pictures (with credit to you) sometime next week? I know someone who would like them.......Keep snapping! xo

    About the weather warning definitions:

    White- Missing, insufficient, outdated or suspicious data. Like life itself.
    Green- No particular awareness of the weather is required. Just walk around in a fog.
    Yellow- The weather is potentially dangerous. So true.
    Orange- Follow any advice given by your authorities. Very bad advice.
    Red- be prepared for extraordinary measures. I like this one the best!!

  13. Very funny Don! Sorry if there is any danger. I can't help but find it so beautiful though.
