Where I live is currently under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning; directly north of me they’ve got a Tornado Watch going on.
But the NOAA has said nothing about dragons.
I sense a conspiracy.
Looks more like a Firefly than a dragon to me.
Dude, us too. We just entered tornado warning territory down here in TN/KY.
No dragons yet, though… So unfair…
Im disappointed. I thought by the title that you had a PET dragon, not just one flying by.
I think the dragon is absolutely awesome. And in the sky, where she / he ought to be.
Dragons exhale fire. Hot air rises and creates the vorticity of tornadoes. Over the ocean, Sharknados. QED.
All hail the glow, um, dragon cloud!!
First: that cloud formation wins the internets for the day.
Second: LOLed for real.
Oh! and Third: Duck and cover. #thatisall
Obviously Carl Sagan’s trying to send a message…
That, right there, is incredible.
Hi, for one, welcome our new Cloud Dragon overlords!
Well of course not! Everyone knows that tornadoes are just cover stories for dragons.
You just can’t trust the weather service; Mulder was right!
[Deleted for terribly sad attempt at an insult – JS]
I sense Night Dragons gearing up for a Shadow War….
That pic conjures images of NK Jemisin’s ““Sinners, Saints, Dragons, and Haints Worth a listen if you’ve not heard it before.
Glad you’re OK JS.. No dragon would dare attack the Scalzi compound!
Wow, just checked the news. It says that at least three people have been killed in the Midwest States due to the severe weather.
(I’m getting the northern edge of the storm here– high winds, severe thunderstorm warnings, etc).
Keep your head down, Scalzi. Now that you’ve posted this they know you’re onto them.
Obviously, this a precursor to a war with Night Dragons. Or Cloud Dragons. Or both. But dragons of some type.
I sense a sequel to “Shadow War” coming soon.
We had enough with the damned tornado warnings……I spent the entire day from noon until 7:30PM at our Emergency Management Agency running SKYWARN nets on amateur radio.
SHADOW WAR OF THE NIGHT DRAGONS: BOOK 4; ATTACK OF THE CLOUD DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dragonado! Shadow War of the Shark Dragons!
I’m so glad you appreciate it: I had it made just for you. ;)
Well we had dragons here today. Many friends are now homeless. My family was a lucky one. We still have a roof over our head.
Sorry John, but it looks like you’ve pissed off the Targaryens. We will avenge thee.
Toothless? What are you doing there??
Srsly, stay safe, everyone out there.
uh…my first comment on this blog that i have been reading for three yrs was in reference to your last post. sitting here in my home in the northeren panhandle of WV at 1130 pm…..i can tell you that your dragons have arrived sir…..with a vengence. sky….wind….out of tolkien i fear……
Coo! And cool!
That is clearly a camel.
Dragons technically fall under the jurisdiction of the Fish & Wildlife Service, so I don’t think you can really complain about NOAA on this one.
(1) That’s one of the dragons that NOAA sends out to breathe on thermometers in support of their “global warming” nonsense. At last, photographic proof!
(2) The fog bears have radioed for reinforcements. We are all doomed.
I live in Toronto and we got a bad storm last night, courtesy of the leftovers from the mid west US. I may recognize those dragons!
Wouldn’t dragon warnings come from Animal Control or the Fish and Wildlife Service rather than NOAA?
@Bruce C: Well, if it’s swimming or flying, I think that would fit the Oceanic or Atmospheric parts of NOAA.
(I should also note that NOAA incorporates what used to be the Bureau of Fisheries…though I dunno if reptiles would count.)
Keep it up and the government will try a way to tax you for seeing that dragon. Not supposed to see dragons they don’t want you seeing them!!
Mr. Scazi, you’ve really done it now. First, you’ve kept me reading your website for at least four hours due to witty and humorous content. I suspect the FDA will be in contact with you later today. Perhaps your site emits a schedule II aerosolized drug, which exposure to over time might kill a person. At least death by Dragon would likely be quick and not leave much if any evidence. Secondly, you have frightened the h*’ll out of my kitten, who was quite enjoying looking at the belly of the tree frog who planted him?self on the other side of the kitchen window, enjoying tonight’s local outdoor flying insects. He saw the Dragon in the photo, and ran to (he hopes) safety under the bed in the next room. I swear I heard him screech the phrase “major buzzkill” as he fled.the room. Poor guy is gonna have nightmares every time he catnaps for days!
My sincere apologies for going off on your blog page earlier. Doodles has made a complete recovery, but our tree frog is MIA.
