Skywatch Friday,
August 12th, 2011

Yesterday the skies darkened in the west.

These threatening clouds rose above the Cawston hills
but we had nary a drop of rain, -
no thunder, no lightning - no fires
praise be!

For skies from around the world visit here
at Skywatch Friday
with many thanks to all who maintain this meme.

  7. Love the white cloud looks like it's going to cover the ground ^_^


  8. I'm pleased for you that there were no electric storms or fires but maybe a little rain wouldn't go amiss. Those clouds must shed their load some time:-)
