Trying to outrun a storm....

We have some bad weather in Florida sometimes.

This storm caught me by surprise.

 I made it to a store and went to the rear of the store when all hell broke loose. It rained so hard you couldn't see the parking lot or hear anyone talk.

(((Scary!)))

Thanks for stopping by.

Alphabe~Thursday the Letter G

Gee!

I must have missed A,B,C,D,E and F.

G is for Going Green.

We are the only living creatures that create trash.

And Gee we certainly create a lot of it.

How do we solve that problem?

Well Virginia Beach, VA came up with a solution for their growing pile of trash. They created a park out of it. They called it Mount Trashmore Park.
Here is a link to some interesting facts about Mount Trashmore Park :
