Sunny Clouds and Sudden Rain

Both yesterday and the day before we had erratic weather, with beautiful skies alternating with popcorn storms. (Popcorn storms pop up suddenly and move on quickly.)

By late afternoon the clouds were so dramatic I just had to venture out in the wet grass to take some pictures.

It's Skywatch Day — See the Skyley blog.
