Took this one a few weeks ago it is the moon rising (east)as the sun was setting (west), I was standing about 50' from the taller tree at dusk tonight and a owl landed in it and watched me for 4or 5 min then flew over quite low and across the field to another tree.

Sometimes ya just gotta stop and enjoy. My sun snapped this picture on the way to work the other morning. He thought the ripe milo backgrounded by a red sky was kinda neat.

Early this morning a storm front was coming through and it had the neatest bands in it. Just thought I would share.

 



 



There is some cooler weather behind this front. I hope so, it has been mild so far with only two noticeable frosts.

We had a storm move through yesterday and these were on the backside of it.





Hard to  get the total effect of them but they were gorgeous.

We have been having some hot and wet weather and just about every day this past week there were storms that dumped heavy rains, high winds, tornados, hail and flooding. On one day rainfall totals ran from 3 to 6 inches in various places. And then late Friday afternoon while I was getting ready to leave the job I was working on (in the mud) I was just north of a cell that passed just south of me and showed some spectacular views of the sky. There were tornado reports, high winds and hail in this storm.

This view looking to the north was taken around 6 PM while I was standing in the sun with a few sprinkles falling. There was another line of storms about 50 miles to the north in this picture passing thru the Twin Cities and moving into Wisconsin.

 



Then looking to the east.

 



Then to the southeast.

 



And then at about 7:45 PM as the storm cell finally was moving away.

 



So for about an hour and 45 minutes I was treated to just a few sprinkles while there were reports of a tornado on the ground near the Rochester airport (about 15 miles southwest of me) plus high winds, heavy rains and flooding right where I needed to go. There were even two rainbows thrown in for good measure while I worked in the sunshine and watched it all unfold. It was a spectacular show, but I've now seen enough of these DanG'ed storms for a while.

Sorry Norm, we've run out of places to put the water and are now temporarily holding it in the streets. And I see where Ames is doing the same thing.

Do you suppose we should be gathering up logs to saw for the arks?  ::)

 :D :D

I had a guy show up to buy my splitter that lived about an hour south of me, he said they had 12.75" of rain in 2 days.  :o

This is in addition to just about constant rains we've had this year. June was the wettest on record, July the 5th wettest. I'm guessing August will go down in the top 3.

Last night between storms, we were blessed with the site of the most intense double rainbow any of us had ever saw. I took photos and a video, none of which does it justice. The one photo is taken of the opposite sky.

Some nice pictures Jeff and VT, I don't seem to get up early enough to get sunrise pictures.

I got a few pics of a rainbow on saturday evening, I was at John's Cove Beach at a place called Cape Forchu with my daughter and noticed the rainbow of, of course I didn't have my camera so I took these pictures with my cell phone.

It was one of the most vivid rainbow I can recall seeing and was wondering if the angle of the sun (being close to fall and in the evening) had anything to do with it.
