Smiley Sociology Study #7 - Weather

Image by Salvatore Vuono via

It is time once again for a Smiley Sociology Study...
perhaps a weather theme will interest you, blog buddy?

Have you written anything about the tornadoes?
Have you seen a rain storm drench a field of potatoes?

Is June your favorite weather month of the year?
Or is there a different season that you hold dear?

Have you dreamt of being a weather man for a living?
Or do you feel the forecasts are always misgiving?

 Whatever it is you think or feel about the weather,
let's write some posts about it and link up here together.

Non rhyming directions for the poetry challenged:

(1) Create a new post about weather or link to one that was already on your blog. Please note: your post does not need to be poetic. All styles of blogs are welcome as long as their post is about weather.

(2) Please include a link back to the Smiley Sociology Study within your post to help spread the word about the link exchange. The more "data" / posts I have to peruse, the better pseudo sociological results I can produce!

(3) copy the link for that post and paste link into Mister Linky below.
Please link directly to the post you want to share, not to your home page.
I will delete your link from the study if I cannot find a weather themed post to link to directly.

(4) leave a comment here to let me know you've posted a link

(5) read links left by others and tell them (nicely) what you think

    Whether to create a read
    Whether there is any need
    Whether to put on a show
    Whether to state what I know
    Whether to go in the sleet and hail
    Whether to pay your non rhyme instruction bail
    Whether to come on out
    Whether to sit and gloat
    Whether to jump
    Whether to get over this hump
    Whether to use the link
    Whether to have you hit the brink
    Whether I should stop
    Whether I should become a rhyme cop
    Whether I will win
    Whether I'll commit a sin
    Whether that's something I'll admit
    Whether it would give you a fit
    Yay I am the winner I declare
    Oh wait I did it wrong, no fair

    I was supposed to talk about the weather you say
    Whether I did that I still got a smile today
    So whether the weather blows around a feather
    Or whether your non rhyming directions screw me up

  15. the sky has been punctured
    pouring its life blood on
    our heads and in runnels
    to cool the crust we walk
    was 95 earlier, soon when
    empty we will sweat in the
    sauna of its remnants
