I woke up at four this morning, showered, dressed for work in scrubs and took the dogs out. I was walking Jinx around the yard, and I looked up. I always check the sky, even in the dark. With no cloud cover, the stars were so clear and beautiful that I could have stared at them until daylight.
What is it about the sky that captures human imagination? Is it the Christian belief in heaven? Is it the sheer magnitude of the sky? I’ll leave you to ponder that. I’m waiting for the stars to be visible again….
I don’t know why I have such a love for clouds, but I sure do! Hope you enjoy sky watching, too.
I love to hear that a storm is moving into my area. I enjoy cloud watching more than the average person, as I am sure you have noticed if you frequent my blog. When I listened to the weather yesterday, I couldn’t resist heading out to look at the sky.
On the way to the doctor’s office yesterday, Bela and I had the chance to take some pictures in spite of feeling icky. We even mustered the energy to take some shots on the way home.
A storm warning went out, so this time I decided to go looking for trouble. My daughter didn’t want to head out storm chasing, so I called Stacey to see if Gen, Bela’s best friend, wanted to go. No sooner than the words left Stacey’s mouth, Gen was moving! I picked her up, and away we went!
This was a fast-moving storm, but we did get hail in the half hour we were out. The clouds were amazing.
We need the rain!
