It's a good thing I like clouds, 'cause this year there have been a whole lot of them. Accompanied by rain. Lots and lots of rain. And occasionally snow. But just so we don't get depressed, we'll focus on the clouds.
Each morning when I wake up, I'm hoping to see this.
Most mornings, it's been this. Yeah. That's the sun. Blink and it's gone again.
And this happens. So what's a sun-starved gal to do? You guessed it. Grab her camera. And make her kids moan. Like it or not, there are clouds everywhere. At least they're interesting.
My favorite stormy clouds are usually in front of thin, high-level clouds that allow the sun to glow through like this. It's a haunting look.
I also like clouds that lead your eye across the sky.
And every once in the while, the clouds thin and nearly disappear. I cross my fingers, hoping it will last a little longer.
And then, boom. In come the clouds again. So I sigh and take a picture of some cool trees silhouetted by sun and rain and the ever-present, ever-constant clouds.
A few days ago, we could see another storm rolling in. There was this huge fuzzy cloud with crazy wisps going straight up. Cool. But how about some sun and color?
And then we got it! Blue sky again. Sun again. Just when we thought we'd die of greyness. It was like water in the desert for a dying woman, and I didn't think we could beat this sunset.
But then a day later, I looked out the window to see the whole sky alight. My kids and I ran out.
I ran back in. You guessed it. I got my camera and snapped away. The kids rolled their eyes, but then laughed. Even if the weather isn't predictable, at least I am.
