Even With Clouds, The Sky Is Beautiful

October 20, 2012

This morning is cloudy, wet and warm.  About 2:45 this morning, the skies lit up with flashes of lightning.  About two minutes later, the crash, bang, boom of the thunder started up.  And then it was over as quickly as it started.  Most of the night it just quietly rained, letting up before daybreak.

The weatherman says that today will be in the low 70's with a 60 percent chance of rain.  The bright news is that it is supposed to sunny the next six days starting tomorrow.  Even with temps a bit lower, it will feel good to see lots of sunshine.

Yesterday was a really nice day at work.  The Mrs was in a very good mood, and was even happy to see Pogo.  The weather outside was cloudy, yet warm.  At one point, I had to go outside  for something and noticed that the sun was visible in the sky, but was hidden by so many gray clouds.  The clouds were moving rather quickly, and every now and then you could get a peek at the sun.

I grabbed my camera and took some photos of the sky.  Call me crazy, but it really is quite fascinating to watch.  I got some great shots of the sun behind the clouds, and some rather interesting cloud formations. 

Next, the wind started up again, and was blowing all the leaves from the trees.  Here's a photo of the sky dotted with leaves.  This was not the easiest photo to get, but a lot of fun to try.

When I got home from work, there was a nice surprise waiting for me in the mail.  I will have to save that for tomorrow's post because I first want to photograph it so that I can share it here.  Around noon today, the president of the camera club (the one we don't belong to anymore) will be by to drop off my November entry photos.  This should be interesting.  I shall be on my best behavior.  I figure it is the club's loss not ours.

The shelter group where I adopted my Pogo from has asked me if I would write an article, complete with photos, about how it has been with Pogo in my life.  I will start the article later today because it have to send it to them before the end of next week.  If it comes out good, I'll post it here.

Now I think I shall mosey on over to the stove and see about cooking up some scrambled eggs and bacon for our breakfast.  This is one of Pogo's favorite meals.  For that matter, mine too!  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I loved the sky so much I stole it! I want to use it as a texture after I remove the moon. I hope this is okay.
I've been shooting lots of skies lately also - maybe because there's so much sky down here.

Had to catch up two days, LOL!
Pogo is looking real handsome, his new "cut"suites him well!
And nice that you ould take Pogo with you to work and the Mirs didn;t mind.
It's a pity the photoclub didn;t turn out to be the club you wanted or expected. But I am sure, you will find another one soon.
Great idea to take the day off at your birthday and make it a nice day for you and Pogo. May be you can take somebody with you? Sometimes it's nice to be out alone, but some company(other than Pogo's I mean)can be great too.
Hmmm, wondering what the surprise could be that came to you??
Have a wonderful day,

Lovely photos of the sky, especially the one with the leaves dancing in it! It is 75 degrees to start our day this morning, going up to 90 again, but to be really windy! Hope you and Pogo can have a great day today! Write a great article! Hugs, Mat
