Cloud Watching

While all other eyes were on the football game, I was captivated by the clouds changing shapes.

Sunday Snippet

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….

Clouds are amazing, but so are the stars in a clear night sky.

More Clouds!

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.

This was what the sky looked like at my house.

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.

The clouds were amazing.

I was interested in the cloud bank.

We slowed to watch a cattle drive.

Every time we pass this, I have wanted to stop, and this time we did!

Another Storm!

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.

Gen always tilts the camera....

Gen took this pic of the rainbow that followed the hail and rain.
