Clouds



Clouds.... are fascinating and interesting... assuming they have not come with a huge dangerous storm. Growing up in Northern California, we did not see much in the way of storm clouds. Ground clouds, (otherwise known as fog). But storm clouds are really different, lots of texture and shape and light.

One evening I looked out front and saw this cloud. I think we had a thunderstorm... a little to the north before this cloud appeared to the south.



We have had a few really raucous storms this summer. Several where the Tornado sirens have gone off. We use our Nebraska plan. Pets and leads to the basement, along with our valuables.... (cameras, wallets, tablets/computers and boots). And then watch the storm.... come in. Probably not too bright, but who can just sit and wonder what is going on. 

A couple of more clouds in general.



And in Florida.... this cloud and a hotel. The hotel reminded me of the condo unit the DH lived in on the beach in Durban, South Africa.

Great pics as always. There has been occasions lately when I would have loved to be able to pull over and snaps some cloud pics, but being on the motorway that is forbidden. Buhu;)
