Cloudy and Blue – Skywatch
It is with pleasure that I report that our mist has dissipated. It is with displeasure that I report that FREEZING TEMPERATURES have replaced that mist. Adding to the positive tally, however, is the fact that the skies are watch-worthy again – not that mist was horrible – it was a nice variation – but I love watching clouds. So here is my weekly report:
Forgive me bloggers, for I have failed you. The first snow on the rooves of our barns went un-photographed. A double whammy, I realize. . . . for this was the new barn’s FIRST SNOW. For the record, I am an unfit nostalgic all the way around. I knew that I’d be miserable with follow-up. So the old barn has no "first snow" pictures either. In real life this is how my photographing goes as well. You know all those 2nd and 3rd siblings who complain of diminishing pictures? My children can never hold that over my head. There is an equal dirth of photographs for BOTH of my children. So there.
This was taken one morning after the family left for school/work. You can’t tell as well in the photo, but there are layers of textures – the front clouds are fluffy and cotton-candyish. The back clouds are more . . . ummmm. . . . textured (I have obviously not been taking notes in Dewdrops class).
But then check these out – almost made me forget the texture (sorry Dewd).
This was on the opposite side. Can you tell how frosty the mornings have been!? BRRRRRrrrrrrrrrr. I almost started feeling sorry for the cows! Not sorry enough to bring them in to the garage with the chickens, but still – it is
pretty downright nippy out there. Hey – didn’t someone call this a "mackerel sky"? See – I do sort of pay attention (actually – it’s more about retention than it is paying attention. . . honest!)
Happy Skywatching! There are all sorts of skies for your viewing pleasure at Skyley . . . where you might even catch a few warmer skies.
