Stormy Weather

We are currently stuck in a productive weather pattern.  The days begin with clear skies and cool temps--+5ºC.  By noon hour puffy little white clouds have begun to dot the sky.  As the afternoon goes along, they build and become taller.  Pretty soon the sky is filled with towering white clouds rising from flat, dark bottoms.

Then the rumbling starts.  The sky here is so big that you can see two or three separate storms building.  Sometimes we get hit by one, and sometimes they just go to the north or the south.

On Sunday a good one came through here and stripped many blossoms off the old apple tree.  This year the trees are so overloaded with blossoms that they need to be thinned out.

Last night at 9:45 p.m. there were a few showers falling between us and the sun setting in the west.  The sun's rays penetrating from below and behind the showers turned them into a spectacular show of red and orange shifting curtains of rain.

What a lot of beauty we see every day!
