Light up a light (easyweimaraner reblog)

(Comment I made on my friend Easy’s blog)

A great message to start my day! What I am trying to do here is fill the “voids” with love. Love is light to cast into the voids of the unknowns of this life. To illuminate what may seem unlovable and see people, places and things differently. Like A flashlight beam into a cave. As Maya Angelou says, “we are more alike than we are unalike.” Hugs to you all there.

… and celebrate with us….

Today we join Aunty Yam for Divali, the fest of the light where the good beats the evil.  We think our world needs more light what can chase back all shadows and the darkness….

The interesting thing is that nearly all cultures and religions  have such a fest where the light conquers the darkness… there is  Divali the fest of light in Hinduism, Sankt Martin and the Lucia Day and Christmas  the fests of light in Christianity, Mevlid Kandili, the birthday of the prophet  in Islamism, Hanukkah in Judaism and Pavarana the fest of light in Buddhism.

… it seems we have more in common than we think… and couldn’t be that  a reason to see each other not by our religion, color or nationality but as the people we are?

May our candle (battery operated, of course) bring the light of friendship to all…

Healer of the Broken Hearted (reblog Rachel Mankowitz post)

Personal stories about what violence like happened in Pittsburgh does to people and communities are not isolated to the point of impact but the radius that spreads from the point of impact. Violence of this magnitude is like the detonation of a bomb or any other form of violence against one, against oneself or the many….it spreads one way or another to us all.  When I read Rachel’s story and message, had to pass it on!  She is a beautiful example of courage and not letting fear determine the course of her life.

My comment to Rachel’s post best expresses how I see this:

“The phrase “staying in the warm space” came to mind reading this. “What do you love the most?” energy is what we were taught to tap into during my Quantum Touch Energy healing training. Pure, unconditional love, which our pet family often teaches us about the best, is what we need to take out into the world to help other see what love looks like. Many people in this world have no idea and so they turn to what they know and sadly that is often hate, bigotry and violence. They were taught this. I’m so sorry you and members of the spiritual world you are part of are having to endure this lesser aspect of human nature. Remember, they are broken. It’s easy to pray and love our family and friends, not so much the broken. I have to remind myself about this each day. Love and hugs to you sweet girl.”

(I’m currently reading A Wind In the Door by Madeline L’Engle and ironically loving your enemies is one of Margaret’s lessons.  When you love someone who seems unlovable, sometimes all that is unlovable ceases to exist to reveal who the person underneath all the hate and darkness truly is…worthy of love.  They always were lovable but their existence, for whatever reasons, made them forget.)

A question I have been asking myself a lot lately, “What brings you joy?”  Do I feel my heart in the center of me radiating warmth and light or has it fallen into my stomach or is it stuck in my throat?  The place of fear or obstruction being the throat most times!  You can consciously move where your heart, your fragment of the sun sits within you with your thoughts, feelings and actions.  You have a personal barometer placed right in the center of you to help you navigate this life.  As my Quantum Touch teacher Carol Lee taught me, “If it ain’t light, it ain’t right!”

We had a solidarity service at my synagogue last Sunday, in the aftermath of the shootings at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Four synagogues came together in one building, and by the time Mom and I arrived, twenty minutes before the service started, there was no parking left. People had to stand along the sides of the sanctuary after all of the seats had been filled. The clergy of all four synagogues led the service, with readings by the rabbis and songs by the cantors. There was an enormous amount of crying, but I couldn’t cry. The music was beautiful. The presence of clergy from all of the local Christian denominations was meaningful (the local mosque was planning another service for the following day). But the words didn’t reach me. I just wanted to find comfort, and to feel something, but I couldn’t feel anything.

29 Oct 2018 Wonderful stars on the lawn

 

Hello to you.  I hope this finds you in a positive energy space wherever and whenever you are as you read this.

My inspiration this morning comes from our Link and how he responds lately to the word “Wonderful.”  His eyes light up, his ears perk up and sometimes he starts playing enthusiastically.  It’s absolutely….well…wonderful!  It sparks in me the wonder that comes from still having a child living inside this aging suite of flesh I am wearing that is named Jackie.   So he inspired me.  I went outside and inside I heard a nudging to think about what is wonderful to me.  There are many, many wonderful things on my list but near the top has always been dewdrops shining in the sunshine.  I even made a little phrase for it.  It’s changed over the years but basically this:

“Stars on the lawn shimmer in the morning sun and then their gone.”  (number value = 641)

I would ask you to consider talking to the child within yourself and ask, “What do you think is wonderful?”  What brings you a sense of wonder in this world?  When is the last time you took time with what wonderful is for you?

 Wonderful = 118

Wonder = 79  Full = 51 = 130

Shiny = 75 Shine = 55 = 130 (A little two word song I used to sing to our Sammy…..often crying as I did because I knew he had to leave me some day.)

Three= 56  Years = 68 = 124 (The length of time Kyle and I had to wait for Link to come to us)

A Miracle = 62

= 564

Sam = 33

Link = 46

= 79 + 564 = 643

25 Oct 2018 Blind Creator (Blade Runner 2049)

Yesterday it rained most of the day and I wasn’t feeling very well.  A good stay inside sort of day.  This morning we’ve had a slight break in things.  I got out back to visit our adorable neighbor Buster (a tiny Yorkie) through our shared fence.  He has peeked at me through the fence as long as we’ve known each other lol.  Now he has a gap wide enough so I can give him some attention and tell him how clever a boy he is.   He reminds me of Kyle’s parents much larger Yorkie and my Aunts little guy Tex.  Such sweet dogs!  His “Dad” is a very good neighbor.

23 Oct 2018 neighbor Yorkie Buster peeking through fence Alvarado TX DSC_0184

After time with Mr. Buster,  I had a thought I’ve had many times when I am listening to music and close my eyes, run my  hands through the air.  The thought was triggered by finally seeing Blade Runner 2049 the other night.  Kyle bought it along with Covenant (Aliens) and Beyond (Star Trek) at the Game XChange in Burleson (http://www.gogamexchange.com/stores/texas/burleson/).   I’ll be honest, we were disappointed with both Covenant and Blade Runner.  The original films are so ingrained into us that anything else just doesn’t have the same impact.  Blade Runner is my favorite science fiction film, one of Ridley Scott’s finest films in my opinion.  Kyle would say the original Alien is the best lol.  They are both really good lets just say!

There is a character, Niander Wallace  (Jared Leto) that as soon as I saw him made me think of Jesus.  He had the look of the Christ that has been painted and put before us through time.  Niander had to use technology as his eyes.  For those of you that have seen the movie, you know this character is a complete polar opposite to the Jesus of the Bible.   Niander was a Christ devoid of feeling or care for his creation.  They were a product.  They were expendable….a means to an end.

What has come to me many times is that what we see with our eyes is often a trick and deception.  Not quite a magic trick but close.  We focus on what we want to see and that is what we see even if their is tangible evidence that what we are seeing isn’t really there.  We just want it to be.   I think we are all guilty of this in one way or another be it politics, religion, sports, movies, music or other platforms where human beings are placed on the pedestal meant for God.

From what I’ve been able to figure out for myself, God doesn’t need eyes or a body to see….that’s what all of creation is for.   How else can God (energy) be everywhere at once?  This is why no one truly gets away with anything in the end.   You don’t have to have eyes (of your own) to “see” when you are God.

It doesn’t surprise me there isn’t a definitive origin for the name of God.  Knowing God for yourself, in your way, is a very personal relationship.  Just as you come up with names for special people, family, friends, pets etc. in your life, so do many have a name for the God of their understanding.  I have found it easier at this point in my life to just call God, God.  The God of my understanding isn’t confined to books, dogma or ritual.  For me, God is every single particle that is this existence.  Every breathe.  Every single aspect of what it means to be here on this planet is God.    We are all elements of God.

God has become for me like an actor who has 7 billion plus different costumes to choose from.  That is the best way I can describe it.  God looking at God in many different suites of clothes only made of flesh and blood.   Some aspects of God are light and some are shadow but all God.  Through us God is able to go from the intangible to the tangible.  God can be anyone.  God is not just human but presents themselves in all life on this planet. 

all the worlds a stage in Simple Gematria equals: 202

“All the world’s a stage” is a quote from Shakespeare’s play “As You Like It.“. It is one of many such quotes that is known by the vast majority of people, but is not always di…rectly recognized for its Shakespearean origins. In the play, the character Jaques says “All the world’s a stage,/ and all the men and women merely players.”.

An analogy that comes readily to mind as a person who enjoys playing video games now and again is this.  What I am perceiving is this life we share is a lot like video game avatars.  We are God’s avatars. 
One of my favorite things about playing an online MMO is character customization features.  For Kyle and I, the character customization part of an online game is one of the best parts.  After making a character and playing them for a period of time, I have experienced “alt-idis”.  For those who play these sorts of games, you know what I mean.  You grow bored with one character and make another without deleting the old one.  Sometimes it feels like this is the way of God as I’m beginning to understand them.  The Sims was very much like reality and that’s probably why I got bored with it.  It was tedious to have to worry about the characters physical needs and personal growth and development.  This often lead to some pretty awful deaths for many Sims just to spice things up.  Those of you that have played the Sims know exactly what I mean. 

Unlike digital characters and avatars, we have physical needs, we age, we get sick and we eventually die.  Like the digital characters we delete, when we die the billions of segments of data that made us a physical being in this world are broken down and taken back into the main program to be reconfigured and begin again.   This process seems to be the reset button, the great forgetting and then we are reborn.  I don’t believe we actually go anywhere after we die.  We return to God’s mainframe and are eventually reborn.

Where Did “God” Come From?

The English word God originated from an old Anglo-Saxon word which itself was derived from the Germanic word Gott which was used to refer to all sorts of “gods,” not necessarily the True God (just as “god” still is). In English-language translations of The Holy Bible (the Old Testament was written mostly in Hebrew, while the New Testament mostly in Greek) “God” is used to translate a number of actual Divine Names, specific to the True God, as recorded in the Scriptures. Using “God” as a name for God rather than a statement of what He is can perhaps be compared to calling your best friend “Human” instead of by their actual name.

Elohim

The Tetragram Elohim, from the Hebrew pronounced el-oh-heem, is the most frequently recorded name for God, more than 2,500 times in the Old Testament. Elohim is actually the plural form of its root word, but singular in usage – after all, there is only one God (see The Logos).

Examples where Elohim was translated as God:

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1 KJV)”And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness” (Genesis 1:26 KJV)

The Tetragram

The second most common Name for God is the YHVH, or “Tetragram” as it has been called. It is shown in the illustration along with the names of the Hebrew letters and their approximate sounds (note that Hebrew is written right to left).

The ancient pronunciation of the YHVH is uncertain, and there have been a number of interpretations. The most common is “Jehovah,” which some Bibles use in their translation, while others render the YHVH as “Lord.” For example, for Exodus 20:2-3, the American Standard Version has, “I Am Jehovah thy God, Who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me,” while the King James Version has, “I Am The Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.”

There are also a number of Names which use the YHVH in combination. Examples, using the “Jehovah” interpretation: Jehovah-ropheka, “Jehovah that heals” (Exodus 15:26), Jehovah-meqaddeshkem, “Jehovah Who sanctifies you” (Exodus 31:13), Jehovah-tsabaoth, “Jehovah of hosts” (1 Samuel 1:3), “Jehovah-elyon, “Jehovah Most High (Psalm 7:17), Jehovah-roi, “Jehovah my shepherd (Psalm 23:1)

El

El is used over 200 times as a Name for God, often in combination as El, Eloah and Elyon. Many of the faithful people of God had “el” in their name e.g. Elijah (“The Lord is God”), Daniel (“The Lord is my Judge”). Another name for Jesus Christ was Immamuel (Matthew 1:23) which means “The Lord is with us.”

Shaddai

Shaddai is found almost 50 times in the Old Testament, and is usually translated as Almighty. It was first recorded when God spoke to Abraham: “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, The Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I Am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be thou perfect. And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.” (Genesis 17:1-2 KJV)

Theos

In the New Testament “God” is used for the original Greek word Theos

Examples of Translations

“And Moses said unto God, “Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, ‘The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you’; and they shall say to me, ‘What is His Name?’, what shall I say unto them?” And God said unto Moses, “I AM THAT I AM:,” and He said, “Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” And God said moreover unto Moses, “Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is My Name for ever, and this is My memorial unto all generations.” (Exodus 3:13-15)”For thou shalt worship no other god: for The Lord, whose Name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods.” (Exodus 34:14-15 KJV)

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:9-13)

11 Sept 2018 Are you sorry you did something wrong or just sorry you got caught?

Kyle and I were talking today about whether or not most people are genuinely sorry when they have done something wrong.  Are they sorry about what they did or are they just sorry because they got caught.  It seems like there are so many laws that don’t get enforced or if they do they are not consistently enforced.  I honestly believe the lack of consistency goes to a lot more people are misbehaving than we have law enforcement to actually catch them at it.  I also suspect there are many laws on the books that really are either too complicated for the average person to understand or are out of step with our times.  Many people probably don’t even know they are even breaking a law there are so many of them and they are so complicated to understand.  The term “legalese” comes to mind.  I’ve tried to read some laws and it’s made my head hurt.  The language they use for a lot of laws are not the normal words that most of us use day to day.  Did they do that on purpose?  May be.

I’m going to take a break from here for a couple of days.  We are going to be having some extra four legged visitors for a few days and that will keep me pretty occupied!  Another reason I need to step away is I know I’m repeating myself.  I tried to draw today and I was empty – nothing came to me.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it does make for a disappointment for those of you who started following my blog for my art works!

Anyhew… here is my brainstorm.  It’s not all inclusive but it’s interesting to see some of the common terms in numbers.  I am doing something a little different and making sure the dividing by 2 happens all the way through.  It’s interesting to see how some of these items really are not straight-forward and require analysis, which is pretty accurate to what is actually going on.

libel

1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others. Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander, which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie. Publication need only be to one person, but it must be a statement which claims to be fact and is not clearly identified as an opinion. While it is sometimes said that the person making the libelous statement must have been intentional and malicious, actually it need only be obvious that the statement would do harm and is untrue. Proof of malice, however, does allow a party defamed to sue for general damages for damage to reputation, while an inadvertent libel limits the damages to actual harm (such as loss of business) called special damages. Libel per se involves statements so vicious that malice is assumed and does not require a proof of intent to get an award of general damages. Libel against the reputation of a person who has died will allow surviving members of the family to bring an action for damages. Most states provide for a party defamed by a periodical to demand a published retraction. If the correction is made, then there is no right to file a lawsuit. Governmental bodies are supposedly immune to actions for libel on the basis that there could be no intent by a non-personal entity, and further, public records are exempt from claims of libel. However, there is at least one known case in which there was a financial settlement as well as a published correction when a state government newsletter incorrectly stated that a dentist had been disciplined for illegal conduct. The rules covering libel against a “public figure” (particularly a political or governmental person) are special, based on U.S. Supreme Court decisions. The key is that to uphold the right to express opinions or fair comment on public figures, the libel must be malicious to constitute grounds for a lawsuit for damages. Minor errors in reporting are not libel, such as saying Mrs. Jones was 55 when she was only 48, or getting an address or title incorrect. 2) v. to broadcast or publish a written defamatory statement.

11 Sept 2018 Seventeenth Anniversary (9/11)

Hello to you.  How are you?  I’m doing ok.  Today is the 17th anniversary of 9/11/2001.  Today I’m thinking about all the survivors who are yet struggling with cancer and the other adverse health conditions that came from the day.  I am thinking about the family of those who died that day….all of us.  Directly or indirectly, we are all family.   Sometimes families fight and do really horrible things to each other.  To me, as I look at 9/11 all these years later, that day is a testimony to what extremes can come from a dysfunctional family.

5 Sept 2018 Sentient or Food

Hello.   I hope this finds you well.  I saw this morning that Japan is making a proposal to resume commercial whaling and at first I got really upset.  Then I decided to look at things a little more closely and of course found myself in the hypocrite box.  I eat meat and meat comes from cows which are sentient beings.  I don’t know to what degree they rank up with whales but nevertheless, before I can point a finger at others, I have to remove “the plank in my own eye” on this.    It’s so hard to resist passing judgement on others who don’t believe what we believe and live the way we choose to live.  It’s almost like a reflex, an instinct to do so.  At least it can be that way for me.  It’s when I take a minute to reflect and step back from something and or someone I’m upset about that I realize my part in it.  I realize that I’ve either done something or been someone just like that at some point in my life.  I eventually set aside my anger to find understanding, compassion and even forgiveness.

Matthew 7 New International Version (NIV)

Judging Others

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

 

As I’ve mentioned before, sometimes when you look at the words we’ve come up with through time to describe certain things, you find some interesting things numerically.  It’s become important to  me to start looking at this because words are what I use to communicate the most, not numbers and yet, if you think about it, numbers are behind a great deal of what we say and do in this world.  The numeric value of a word, I’ve been finding, doesn’t always match what it means by definition.  Since I’ve discovered Gematria, it’s really opened my eyes about the foundations of language and communication.  Take a look at what I’ve put together, what do you see?  Do you see patterns?

“Moronuki said the United States is guilty of a double standard by allowing native communities in Alaska to continue whaling while not wanting Japan to do so, even though whaling is a tradition in some communities in Japan.

“All animals are equal,” he added. “Some say whales are intelligent, but I hear that some scientists found that other animals like cows and horses, they are as intelligent as whales. So you must be aware that we cannot draw the line between animals: ‘They should not be killed because they are intelligent, but others, they are not so intelligent, they should be killed.’ ”

Perry rejected that argument.

“Whether whales are sentient or not, they are very difficult to count. They are long-lived, slow-breeding animals. It’s very hard to know if you are depleting the population, and if you do deplete the population, it takes a long time to recover.”

Lyrics

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah

You’ve arrived in the land of a thousand different names
And the fabulous sons have crashed their planes in flames
Now tomorrow is back claiming redemption is on your heels
And a toothless past is asking you how it feels

And me, my little red corvette has driven by
Fair weather heart has fallen in
My rainyday girl is feeling down
And she tells me that the world is spinning round

I say the dream was all for you
You’re nobody else
Tonight the zeroes were singing for you
Yeah

Hi! Can I walk you home again today?
Gotta get forgive and forget hey hey
Something good is happening and I don’t know what it is
Don’t you know we’re back on trial again today

And it’s breaking wine for you
Hell!, it’s only ’cause you’re true
Someone outtimed my heart
Stopping and preaching and letting love in

You are my moon, you are my sun
Heaven knows what you are
Tonight the zeroes are singing for you
Yes, they were

Tonight the zeroes were singing for you
You
Tonight the zeroes were singing for you
You

It doesn’t matter what you try to do
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter what you try to do
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter where you try to go
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter who we really are
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)

Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)

Doesn’t matter

17 Aug 2018 Growing pains (Alvarado TX), drawings and dream about black smoke (Severe Storms Show off their “Plume-age” – NASA)

(Yesterdays drawings)

Hello to you.  How are you?!  It’s Friday here as I write to you, about 7:52 am.  We made the mistake of attempting to walk Link and Spot before 7:30 am.  With school having started there are folks walking to and waiting for the school buses, people driving there kids and themselves to school….a bit chaotic.  If it’s hard for me, I can’t imagine how difficult it is for Link and Spot with their heightened senses of hearing and smell.  So we put a note on our door so we don’t make the same mistake everyday lol.  If it was just Kyle and I it wouldn’t be so bad but the dogs don’t handle humans in smaller packaging very well!  Nobody looked very happy that we saw.  I said a prayer for them as I watched the filing on to the bus – “I hope you have a good day oh and be nice to each other!”

Alvarado is growing and there are a lot of things we need to get worked out as this is happening.  I think once the construction in the housing addition is completed we will finally be in a place to do that.  When Kyle and I were still going to City Council meetings we told them something is going to have to be done about North Cummings as they were considering more development.  North Cummings is the road behind our house and one of the main arteries for the neighborhoods around us.  We told them they needed to make another exit for the new addition but they didn’t choose to do that.  Now all the roads are really tore up and congested!  You can’t just keep putting more traffic on a single lane road and not expect there aren’t going to be problems!  Alvarado is right in the middle of Dallas and Ft Worth TX.  We thought it would take longer before those cities started to spread out to us, but such is not the case and it’s only been about 9 years!  The noise is so bad at times I’ve resorted to wearing ear plugs!  Growth is good but you have to be strategic about it and have vision to avoid the mistakes so many other places have made.  You have to think about the quality of life of the people you already have living in a place before profit margins.

changing gears…….

I had an interesting dream before waking that I know was triggered by seeing a NASA article I am sharing with you.  The dream was about staying in a village.  I was in an old house looking out an upstairs window.  I could see an old man standing in a plowed field and it looked like a black clouded storm was going to blow over the man while he was working.  He stayed in the field and when the cloud reached him it seemed to become like black smoke and flowed over him.  He bent down into the cloud of smoke and disappeared.

Severe Storms Show off their “Plume-age”

Aug. 15, 2018

It’s not quite a smoking gun, but one could be forgiven for thinking of it that way: a distinctive cloud formation that often signals damaging storms below.

Easily identifiable in satellite imagery, the Above Anvil Cirrus Plume, or AACP, looks like a plume of smoke emanating out from the top of what, in all likelihood, is a serious storm.

“The plume pattern in the imagery instantly tells you without the need for radar or lightning observations or other information that these are the storms you really, really need to look out for,” said Kris Bedka, an atmospheric scientist at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

The plumes have been a frequent sight over the U.S. this summer as outbreaks of severe weather have raked across the Midwest, bringing high winds, tornadoes and hail with them.

In this still image of the North Dakota storms, jet stream air collides with towering updrafts and forms U-shaped areas of cold temperatures shown in blue. The warmer plumes, which are represented by yellow tints, are visible traveling downstream.

​Bedka is studying the AACP phenomenon with colleagues at the University of Oklahoma. Their research is showing that compared to non-plumed storms, plumed storms are significantly more likely to produce high winds, major tornadoes and large hail. In addition, their findings could help weather forecasters provide earlier warnings of severe and tornadic storms not just in the U.S. but around the world.

There are also implications for climate.

“Plume signatures are not only useful for identifying potentially severe storms, but they also represent transport of ice and water vapor into the stratosphere,” said Elisa Murillo, a graduate student at the University of Oklahoma who has collaborated extensively with Bedka on AACP research. “Water vapor is a powerful greenhouse gas, and its presence in the stratosphere has strong impacts on climate.”

The Makings of a Plume

To understand why the plumes are such good indicators of severe weather, it helps to understand the conditions that generate them.

Typical thunderstorms top out at the tropopause, the boundary between the troposphere — the lowest part of Earth’s atmosphere — and the stratosphere. As storm-producing cumulonimbus clouds hit the tropopause their tops flatten out, giving them an anvil-like appearance.

Plumes form when intense updrafts puncture the tropopause and drag cloud tops up into the stratosphere with them. There, racing stratospheric jet-stream winds and powerful updrafts collide.

“You have wind flows exceeding 100 miles an hour at the jet-stream level running into this towering updraft,” said Bedka. “So jet-stream winds are forced to go around.”

As the jet-stream air collides with the updraft, it rises slightly and becomes colder, forming a U- or V-shaped area of cold temperatures.

Plumed storms over northeast Kansas and southern Nebraska

In May, these plumed storms over northeast Kansas and southern Nebraska produced numerous tornadoes, baseball-sized hail and 80 mph straight-line winds.

The collision between updraft and jet stream also causes a ripple effect and transports cirrus cloud ice downstream to form the plume. Plumes are typically warmer than the underlying anvil cloud because they mix with the air in the stratosphere where temperature warms with height.

Where there’s Smoke…

Over the course of their research, Bedka and his colleagues identified hundreds of plumed storms over the U.S. using highly detailed imagery collected at one-minute intervals by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite System, specifically GOES-14 and GOES-16. They then determined when the plumes first formed, how long they lasted and when they decayed.

Next, they linked that satellite data to radar and lightning data from the same storms. They also compared the timing of plume formation to when severe weather actually occurred and when severe weather warnings were issued by the National Weather Service. What they found was significant.

“We found about 400 plume-producing storms across 13 severe weather outbreaks,” said Bedka, “and in about 100 of them you had a plume appearing 10 minutes before the first warning, potentially providing additional lead time for saving lives and property.”

In a few storms that lead time stretched out even further to about 30 minutes.

The plume-producing storms also generated 14 times more severe weather events per storm than storms without plumes. In addition, 88 percent of EF-2 or greater tornadoes and 86 percent of 2-inch-plus hail reports came from plume-producing storms.

“Identifying this plume feature can be paired with radar observations, routinely available here in the U.S., to improve our warning capabilities,” said Murillo. “In many places across the world where radar data are not as accessible, early identification of AACPs can help improve warnings and severe weather preparedness.”

Hail, Hail the Cirrus Plume

In terms of cost, storms that drop hail — often storms of the plumed variety — are the most significant.

According to the National Weather Service, hail did $1.7 billion in damage in the U.S. in 2017 — more than all the damage from lightning, tornadoes and thunderstorm winds combined.

If they’re big enough, hailstones can shatter glass, dent metal, break shingles and mangle crops. A plumed storm over the Cordoba region of Argentina in February 2018 produced hailstones more than 7 inches in diameter. Hail more than 8 inches in diameter has been recorded over Nebraska and South Dakota in recent years.

Though these extreme hail events are rare, Bedka and colleagues hope their research might add a new dimension to the prediction of the severe storms that generate the most dangerous, expensive weather. They’re already collaborating with other scientists to develop an algorithm to automatically detect plumes in satellite imagery.

“The combination of new satellite information such as that from GOES-16 with radar and lightning observations collected from the ground provides an unprecedented package to unravel and provide advance warning of these complex storms,” said Bedka.

Bedka and his colleagues published their findings in a study available in early online release through the American Meteorological Society’s Weather and Forecasting journal.
