Saturday afternoon's (May 8, 2010) forecast called for thunderstorms, which fortunately never materialized. But, by late afternoon, the wind really kicked up and remained strong all day Sunday, too. Heavy clouds blew in with the wind and scudded across the sky. The heavens weren't completely overcast--there were breaks in the clouds that let light and blue sky through. I liked the effect. My yard and driveway are littered with small branches and twigs broken off the trees; they're too small to pick up by hand but too large to leave in place for the lawnmower to find.
_____Unless something spectacular happens in my natural world before Friday, this will be my last post until early June. We're off to southern Utah (Capitol Reef National Park and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument) for nine days, then San Diego and environs for another six days starting on Saturday. I hope I return with lots of good images to share.
