weather



One of the best things about living in rural northern Illinois is the ability to view entire weather systems as they pass through. With nothing but sky from horizon to horizon, it's hard for a thunderstorm to sneak up on you.

Although Montana is know as the "big sky country", perhaps we could be known and the "also pretty big sky country".

This was taken this morning as the sun was rising. Pretty awesome sight to behold.

Amazing. I am awed by the skies in your part of the world. Here in the land of ocean, trees and mountains we never see skies like that.

Beautiful sky. Beautiful country.

There is nothing so captivating to me as a good storm cloud. All of that power made so visible. Nice photo.

Also, I'll take advantage of Blogger's current consideration of me.

The good thing is you can see a storm front coming on the horizon and in my opinion rewarded with a meterological show.

Wonderful! Isn't it nice to have a clear view - free of wires and cables and such :)

Good shot! Lots of movement and portent in it.

I live in the east Tennessee mountains and never see skies this big either, but I was reminded of my trip to South Dakota several years ago. (My best friend from college lives there) I commented that the sky was like a big fruit ripener bowl--a big dome over a flat plate. So much sky I was almost nervous. There was just so much weather!

Beautiful clouds, and a great framing!
