Spring in Colorado

Good Morning Friends~I've mentioned before that spring here in northern Colorado, on the plains, makes life interesting. I imagine it is much like spring on the plains, in other states. We have beautiful mornings and then the clouds roll in, the rain starts joined by thunder and lightning. Here are a few pics from Monday. Love the intensity of the clouds and the vibrant blue sky.
In the photo below, I loved how the dark band looked like a ribbon just laying above the white.    These pics were taken from the car, which helps to understand why they are off kilter a bit.
As much as I enjoy the clouds, I also look for a change in colors and movement-always alert for any possible signs of tornado activity.  In our area, we don't have sirens like some parts of the state-and after having been in a pretty big one, I know what to look for.
Yesterday afternoon, I joined our kids at the pool; it was such fun, until the thunder ushered us out of the pool.  Today I'm sure we'll do the same thing, after hubby and I clean our old house.  We are scaling back a bit on the cleaning-but it will still be nice and fresh when we hand over the keys to the new owners. 
I hope you have a great day today!

  1. California (as I am sure you know) just does not have the dramatic storms of other states. We had a couple of doozies while we were at Mel's, including a tornado watch! I thought the house might blow down one night. I thoroughly enjoyed these storms though. Hope your day is a good one!

  2. Oh how I wish it would rain here. We just get teased with the clouds.
    I hope you start seeing the beautiful colors of spring soon.

  3. The last pic is stunning. Hope you get some good pool time today and glad to hear you re scaling back on the cleaning now. Yikes just started ours after having some work done and the place is, well it needs a major clean. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Gorgeous. We don't get ginormous clouds like that here in CA

  5. Hi Sis: You say you live in Northern Colorado and so do I, and you grew up in Northern California and so did I. You must live east of us as we are located in the Front Range - Fort Collins. I am sure the storms have been challenging your faith as out east of us are quite a number of tornados. I don't know Peggy Artebury outside of her blog, but love her through it. That is where I found your tag. May God bless you and your ministry, and protect you from all the tornados. Hugs and prayers, Joanne,, my blog

  6. Love the cloud photos, they sky always fascinates me!!

  7. It is 90 degrees here today! We have been busy, busy, busy but we don't know doing what! Stanley's leg is so much better so everybody is happy!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. Hi Noreen...glad to hear that you are settling back in with your new home and pool time with the grands. I just love the skies out west...some of the most stunning skies I have seen in Wyoming, South Dakota, New Mexico! Beautiful! I am busy taking care of little miss LadyBug and trying so very hard to nurse her back to health. Thanks for your kind words. Hugs to you and Hunter!

  9. Wishing you well as you sort through and clean out; thanks for the glorious sky photos... they are amazing!

  10. Beautiful cloud photos! I know what to look for, too, and we are always watching. Spring makes some wonderful storm clouds and the darker the more pretty.
