We can never have enough of nature.  We must be refreshed by the sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features, the sea-coast with its wrecks, the wilderness with its living and its decaying trees, and thunder-cloud, and the rain.

–Henry David Thoreau

Pessimism – Every dark cloud has a silver lining, but lightning kills hundreds of people each year who are trying to find it.

–Larry Kersten

The sky is gray and white and cloudy
Sometimes I think it’s hanging down on me…

–Simon & Garfunkel, “Cloudy”

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life.  The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.

–Lord Byron

    I think I like the pessimistic Kersten comment best, which is unusual for me since I’m pretty much an eternal optimist!

  2. Looks like a storm is coming, run to the basement lol
    Seriously, with the heat in here I could smell the rain thanks to the pics.
    And I agree with Somer, Kersten comment is the best!

    • Unfortunately, I got in at the end of the awesome clouds. I was driving home as fast as I could, rushed in to grab my iPad with the fantastic camera and stood in the street taking pictures as fast as I could. Even though I missed some of it, it was still amazing. But it wasn’t much of a storm–just “sound and fury signifying nothing.”

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
