Thunderstorms.

A pretty big thunderstorm blew through downtown Cincinnati this afternoon. The sky got really dark. And the tornado warning sirens were even going off around the city…

The clouds were pretty crazy and moving really fast. I captured this #LapseIt timelapse of the storm moving in above downtown Cincinnati…

The clouds weren’t moving that fast. But you get the point. And then it poured this afternoon. There was so much rain that on our way home Central Parkway was flooded across all four lanes of traffic…

We cut through the Big Boy parking lot to get around the flooding and the back of the parking lot was really flooded too…

Some cars just plowed right on through the flood waters…

Once we were able to get around this body of water, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the way home. Good thing we live on a hill. 😀🌧️🌊❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

I could make a whole separate blog just about construction and demolition. It’s been really fascinating to watch. At least it has been for me. But I’m going to combine all the daily photos I took over the last week into this one blog post so our blog doesn’t become that blog all about construction. On Tuesday, I could see the windows of our old apartment at Sycamore Place across the way…

If you used that exit, the first step would be a doozy…

Monday, November 12th:

And I recorded this time-lapse video of the last bit of the demolition…

I also posted a very condensed time-lapse on my Instagram. And all that’s left now is just a massive pile of rubble and debris. It’s weird to not see that building across the street when I leave work…

Tuesday, November 13th:

It was an ugly building anyway. At least it’s out of its misery. 😀🚧❤️

Thunderstorms.

I captured this timelapse of thunderstorms forming over downtown Cincinnati. And once they moved in, they stayed for the rest of the night…

It was such a stormy night. Taken with Instagram. 😀☁️🌧️❤️

Labor Day fireworks.

This evening we were invited to our friend Robert’s house in Mount Adams to watch the annual big Labor Day fireworks spectacular. Even when we lived downtown, we usually didn’t bother with the Labor Day fireworks because it’s just a mess of people and traffic. But we were invited and a bunch of our friends were all going so what the heck. He had an incredible view of downtown and the Ohio Riverfront from his patio, perfect for watching the fireworks. It was definitely the best view we’ve had for watching these fireworks. We had a very colorful Uber ride to Mount Adams…

I was messing around with the LapseIt app again during the fireworks…

I also took a video of the entire spectacular fireworks display with my Polaroid CUBE+. That video ended up being just under a half hour long, and there was a lot of chit-chat in the background. So I sped up the video and condensed it to just five minutes and cut out all the sound…

I also captured a couple of slow-motion photos that I posted straight to my Instagram. After the fireworks, there was beer pong…

And there was some flip cup…

I’ve never really played a whole bunch of drinking games. It’s a fact that people find somewhat shocking. When I was younger, we would just go out and get drinks. We didn’t play games. We’d just get drinks. Drinking games always seemed pretty silly. What’s not silly was the view of downtown from Rob’s place…

Everyone headed out to bar hop in Mount Adams, and we hopped in an Uber to head back to Northside. It was a really fun night. 😀🎆❤️

Thunderstorms.

As the work day neared its end, a thunderstorm started to descend on downtown…

And then the rain came down in buckets for the drive home…

It’s been ridiculously rainy lately. Taken with my Polaroid CUBE+. 😀🌧️☔️❤️
