Skywatch Friday

Threatening looking but harmless rain clouds dumped an inch in a day on us yesterday - a rarity here!

The cloud formations contrasted nicely with the Autumn tints of the foliage.

I also had fun off-roading, losing the back end like I was on ice and slightly concerned I might have to call the Hubster to tow me out of a muddy back road! My car looks like I went rallying, very cool for a Brit Gal!

To see more wonderful skies from around the world or to join in, go to the Skywatch site.

Very dramatic sky photos. Interesting shot of your car. Mine used to look like that all the time when I worked in western Oklahoma.

I like to watch storm clouds, I don't like to get stuck in the mud or in the snow and I really hate having to call Hubby to help.

The storm clouds look bad, but glad they were not. You are noted for bad weather in your part of the country. We nearly washed away last night.

Those are dramatic skies! And I agree with Martha, love to watch storm clouds, but I don't care to get stuck anywhere! Terrific shots for the day!!

Have a great weekend!

Cool clouds and cool fun playing on dirt roads - I miss that from when I lived in Africa.

Such big heavy clouds! Great photos!

In that first shot I could feel the storm approaching. Sure glad you didn't get stuck out there playing in the mud. Did you wash the car before Hubby saw it? Excellent captures as always.

You must be very busy at school.

Those are really portentous clouds. Fabulous captures, Sarah!

Great photos of the sky on the move, looks a bit blustery in your parts of town.

That first one is scary-looking. Is tornado season over?

Cool pics. Frankly I getting tired of the rain here. I starting to grow moss on north side already. Kidding. Love the pics. Have a great weekend Sarah.
