Round Robin Challenge: About the Weather

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett


Man, I keep missing these things popping up in the RSS reader. No one's fault but my own, obviously. It's a good thing I checked, because I'd contributed part of the suggestion for this week. Essentially, it's anything to do with the weather, but my suggestion was extreme weather, so I'll go with that.

I took this shot just a few moments ago. We're not in true drought conditions around here, but it's hot - 101F on my front porch - and dry. This is the so-called fruit of one of the jalapeno plants:

Yes, it's dry.

Now it's time to dip into the archives for a couple of shots. This is a dust storm back in 2007:

That was taken about 4:00 in the afternoon, as I recall.

And here, in the same vicinity, just two months later:

This was a classic green wall cloud that was showing rotation and signs of funnel activity. Fortunately for our neighbors to the east, no tornado actually formed. After a few hours of storms we got this as a reward:

It looks like the sky is on fire, doesn't it?

All in all, this is the kind of weather I prefer:
