Thank you Clare at My Creative Cosmos for inviting me to join this wonderful challenge.

This photo was taken February 12, 2014.

Kinda, maybe you should be 18 to read this one. Yeah, not really. Now that I have your attention, I am going to sadly disappoint on the subject matter. My job requires that I closely follow the weather. I often have to work outside or prepare for incoming storm event samples so one of the first things I do after my alarm goes off is check the weather so I can prepare my attire accordingly. Imagine waking up to this. I thought, “I have to be dreaming, This must be a sick Wunderground joke”. Now the shape of our great state looking like a particular male appendage has been the butt of many a joke (sorry). Alright already, we all know the state looks like a giant flaccid penis. Now lay on top of that (sorry) a mirror image storm system complete with what looks like Tampa Bay and the string of Key islands at the tip.  I snapped a screen shot just to prove I wasn’t crazy. This past fall I started messing around on Twitter and posted this picture with a caption that went something like, “A little known weather phenomenon that occurs in Florida referred to as Double Penetration“. Unfortunately no one thought this tweet was particularly funny. My gutter-minded, sophomoric sense of humor thought it was fucking hilarious (sorry again). Oh well, you can’t win ’em all. Maybe the haiku will do better.
And if you know me, you know I’m not really sorry at all.

OK, here is where I am going rogue. I am not going to follow the strict rules and pay it forward to five other folks. An elaborate explanation of why can be found on my Five Photos, Five Stories – Day One: Fog post if you care to read my obnoxious rant. Here are my rules: If I follow you, I admire and respect your work. If you would like to take on this challenge, please do so as I would very much like to follow what you create. This concludes my challenge post of  photos, haiku and stories, guilt free with the hope of inspiring someone else to take a shot at it. If you take on the challenge and want to follow the original rules, I think that is great so here are what the rules are supposed to be:

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.

Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.

Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. Today, I invite (insert nominee here) to join the challenge.

I would like to give a special “Thanks” to all of the wonderful bloggers that follow and support me and especially to Clare for being so patient with me. This challenge has been a blast!

This is also a response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature which inspired a theme for my five day challenge and will be incorporated in each of the five posts.
