The calm before the storm

The sky was both beautiful and ominous this week in our area.  One day, it displayed a magnificent morning sight, and another day, it gave us a historic rainfall that was the equivalent of a 500 year flood.

In response to the WordPress Daily Post photo challenge today of “Sky,” I have chosen to share with you the amazing beauty of our morning sky with a single ray of sunshine peeking through the clouds earlier this week, which was the precursor of the storm to come.


I wrote about the historic flood in my previous post yesterday.

    1. We are fine… thanks for asking! Some homes and businesses here flooded, but it is much worse downstate from us with lots of flooding, some pretty epic, unfortunately!


  1. You guys take on heroic proportions in my mind. I don’t think I could live with your kind of changeable weather. I’m glad it’s a big world and room for all sorts! Once again we are sort of corralled by trees and in order to get a good panoramic view we actually have to be out of the campground — the tree cover is pretty amazing. So, for the time we’re here I’m enjoying anyone’s pictures of the sky! (it’s not that bad… we can walk 100 yards to the beginning of the forest and see a perfectly nice field and horizon — but there’s none here where we’re parked). Thanks for the Light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂

    1. I admit that this is a tough time of year for me at times, but some people just take it all in stride. Hubby is one of those. May is usually when we take a week of vacation and fly off somewhere, but not this year. And sure enough, we took the new RV out this weekend, and the only storm in twenty counties managed to find us, complete with small hail and high wind. Fortunately, it was short-lived or it could have been much worse. We could see it coming and got all of the awnings put up in time. An hour later, we saw a major storm brewing about 30 minutes away, and we were prepared to just bug out and come back home if it looked like it was headed our way, but it stayed east of us. Whew! I also admit that I would miss our sky view if I was somewhere with a lot of trees for very long, and I’m glad you don’t have to drive too far to see the sky when you can while still enjoying all those nice trees.


So, what would you like to share today? Thanks!
