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.

These were taken just prior to the second round of storms we had yesterday evening. The colors were just magnificent, and I used my Tokina wide angle lens (with hood) to capture as much of it as possible.
I am loving the rain, even though the first round yesterday evening was pretty intense with 70 mph plus winds and hail. Our roads flash flooded, and I almost had to swim home from running my last errand. But, I never gripe about rain in this part of the country. Never.
