At Last, The Rain

The sky was unusally bizzare ahead of the storm, but the no-nonsense high winds and lightning announcing the arrival of the rain were in the black coulds spiking over the horizon. 

The eyes of the approaching storm

Double trouble, boil and bubble - a cauldren of atmospheric brew.


Ahead of the rain, the sky filled with unusal clouds, spinning and boiling into holes.  I happily took scores of photos.  My neighbors are accustomed to me standing at the edge of the road with my camera now.  They no longer stop to ask if I need help, but give me the courteous two-finger lift off the steering wheel acknowledgement as they pass by.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love where I live?  Even if it is in a "van down by the river", it is home sweet home.  Sweet, sweet home!
