"Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just as Bad)" (commonly referred to as "Stormy Monday") is a song written and recorded by American blues electric guitar pioneer T-Bone Walker. It is a slow twelve-bar blues performed in the West Coast blues-style that features Walker's smooth, plaintive vocal and distinctive guitar work. As well as becoming a record chart hit in 1948, it inspired B.B. King and others to take up the electric guitar. "Stormy Monday" became Walker's best-known and most-recorded song.
...idee had a 'day' that was 'stormy'...the 'cause celebre' of the moment without even knowing about any of the 'controversy' until today...oh well...figured to start a place to rant, predict and generally talk weather...SF Bay Area (terrible smoke from fires in Paradise, CA) and such...
Paradise...lost... our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and their loved ones who have been effected by the terrible fires...not just in Paradise, CA,... in Southern California and all other areas being damaged by nature's wrath...
Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (1608–1674).
