    Buckle your seatbelts, it's....Walpurgisnacht!

    04.30 anyway:

    Walpurgis Night (Wiki)

    Walpurgis Night is witches' night (Deutsche Welle)

    ---
    The festivities are based on ancient folklore according to which witches were believed to fly on their brooms to the Brocken mountain on the eve of May Day. Together with devils, they would celebrate the arrival of spring there.

    It is called Walpurgis Night because it is the eve of the feast day of Saint Walpurga, an 8th-century abbess in Germany.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    In terms of American literature, the night's best known for giving a name to the second act of Edward Albee's great play 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?', the night's sturm und drang washing violently upon May Day shores with George's delivery of the snapdragons.

    Oh. Nobody told me. I missed all the excitement.

    I did notice there was a terrible, gothic storm with thunder and lightning here yesterday. I couldn't help but notice as I was outside trying to paint a fence at the time.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance
