Watching the Skies on Friday

(We interrupt your previously scheduled programming of pirates and Sprittles and castaways to bring you this important announcement.)

Today I'm participating in Sky Watch Friday. You can take a gander at skies from Malaysia to Michigan, Timbuktu to Texas, by clicking here.

In the meantime, this is a view of the sky outside my window in our western Pennsylvania part of the Frozen North, presented as a public service for my friends back in Texas, where it is really hot and dry.(have I told you how hot and dry it is in Texas?) I thought they might appreciate a reminder of what rain looks like so that when it finally shows up again down there they won't be wondering what it is. (L--If I could put this in a box and send it to you I would. Honest.)

It came from the west one afternoon...


...and then it moved on,


leaving this behind:


I love the sky! And I hope it rains in Central Texas real soon.
