Cold Front

As I wandered the yard with my camera, a cool breeze fell out of these clouds. A short time later, the breeze whipped into indecisive gusts, some lashing north to south, others tumbling west to east.

I lingered as long as I dared, but retreated when lightning began to flicker from cloud to cloud, rolling thunder into the scene.

I wonder where dragonflies go, during such weather? Maybe they stay on their perches, letting the rain wash their wings…

    Sometimes we too need to let ‘the rain wash (our) wings’…thanks for sharing, Rae!

    Our storms in California look nothing like this one, Rae. Nice weather for reading and writing and snuggling. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      Our storms don’t always look like this! I only take pictures of the scary ones… 🙂

    Beautiful. Sons and I narrowly escaped beach winds today. Looking forward to seeing you very soon. Hugs.

    The storm photos are spectacular. Poor dragonfly; he looks bereft

      The storms have been spectacular all afternoon, and they seem to be flaring up again…
