The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 19/2020

Good morning everyone and Welcome to Stream of Consciousness Saturday. LindaGHill our lovely host has given us this prompt.

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tion.” Find a word that ends with “tion.” Bonus points if you start your post with it. Have fun!

Precipitation, is a word I have always loved the sound of. I have always heard poetry in the pronunciation of it. What is precipitation? It is water made in clouds that falls to the ground as rain, snow or hail. As a child I used to listen to the weather forecast on the radio and wonder what this mystical precipitation was.

I would wait with great anticipation for it to arrive especially if it was snow. As a child I loved snow, I liked the look and feel of it. Nowadays I am not so excited when I look the weather up on my phone and I see the caption precipitation, because I don’t like either having to stay indoors or get wet!

Can cause such consternation
Snow, rain and hail can halt the nation.
Bringing floods, empty roads and stations.
It can can cause such complication.
A sudden bout could stop a conflagration.
So just for your information
There’s two sides to precipitation.

This is part of LindGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. #SoCs.

    We all love our blue skies and sun, Willow, but sometimes it’s nice to have a slow and steady day of precipitation to give us an excuse to stay inside and bake cookies.

    Precipitation, evaporation, convection, and condensation all relate to water.

    Beautiful photo! We’ve had a lot of heavy precipitation here lately. I wish I could send some over the west coast.

    I’m on the east coast of the US, so I’d be sending it across the whole country. Sill, anything is possible.
