Storm Clouds

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



Storm cloudsImminent storm

This photo was taken about five minutes before a tremendous wind came up. We only got a smattering of rain, but we definitely got some intense and sustained wind. We had several storms tonight associated with the cold front that is passing through, but unless some tree limbs broke, we didn't suffer any damage. I'm relieved we didn't get hail in any of the squalls. I hope the rest of the county and surrounding area fared as well.

I guess that front is what came through northeast Alabama, where I am right now, and northwest Georgia, where I live, last night. There were tornado sirens and weather bulletin interruptions on TV but apparently no serious damage. At home we got some rain, finally. I think it has been about a month since we got any decent rain. And we're supposed to have normal early April temperatures for almost a week, instead of the early Summer temperatures we have been having.

I am glad to have the weather cool down a little, also. In fact, we have a freeze advisory for tonight.

Great photo. I love the gold almost glowing below the clouds.

We've had wild weather in the Dallas area this week, too.

Nice ominous storm shot, Genevieve! Here in Missouri the late frosts have killed the grape and tree-fruit blossoms.

Here, the ash and maple leaves have been killed as well as the grape leaves and others. It will take them a few weeks to catch their breath, figure out what happened and start again.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
