SkyWatch- Barn Watch

This was taken about a month ago when our last winter storm blew through. This is looking at the horse barn at dusk and the silver clouds above it.

I've been terribly busy and unable to post as often as I'd like to. I did get some fairly decent shots of lightning a few days ago but have been unable to download, save, post them yet. I'll try for next Friday's SkyWatch.

We've had some funny weather here. Yesterday there was a flash flood warning above us in Strawberry with downpours that lasted hours and hail the size of nickles. and it's HOT! Probably hit 100 the last 2 or 3 days. The sky in the evening is lovely and every time I see a good shot, guess what? No camera!!!

Have a super Friday!

SkyWatch Friday

This was taken our first year in Pedro. I still worked in the valley and everyday I drove home by way of Turlock Reservoir and watched the Osprey build thier nests and hatch their young.
Hope you enjoy my version of watching the sky. Have a great weekend!

Watery Wednesday- Happy Mother's Day!

This is Lake Don Pedro! I have been wanting to post this photo for awhile and now is the perfect time. This was taken on Mother's Day 2007. This is my brother Scott's boat and my son Raymond on the tow line. My mom Suzanne, my ex-husband and myself were on our pontoon boat meandering around while Scott, his wife Jodie and my sister Denise were speeding around on his new boat. Raymond was the first on the tube that morning. A few minutes after this photo was taken Scott hit a submerged sand bar/ rock and high centered the boat. It took a tow barge with a crane to lift him off of it several hours later and then they towed him back to the ramp. Scott was very upset that the lake was so darn mean to him that day!!! Did I mention that when the barge came around his boat to get close enough to lift him off the sand bar/ rock the barge captain hit the side of Scott's boat and put a huge hole in the side? It was just not Scott's day!

So this Mother's Day we all decided to stay off the water!

Here's hoping you have a great Mother's Day!
