We’ve had some unsettled weather around here lately. We’ve had lots of severe thunderstorm warnings and ominous skies, but usually they pass us by to the north and hit farm country, or to the south and head for Niagara and the lakeshore. The only thing that ever really seems to come through here is a bunch of sound and fury, and the odd tornado.
At one point, in a blue-black sky, a completely straight band of cloud, level with the horizon, came up over the horizon and rolled across the sky like a huge wave rolling in on a huge beach. It was very eerie. And three biplanes, heading from an airshow somewhere, flew across the sky and disappeared into the distance, no doubt trying to beat the storm home. It was a very weird sky.
Weird skies like that here in Tornado Alley always draw us out onto the porch in hopes of a good thunderstorm, so this time we took our camera. Too late for the biplanes, unfortunately.
