Evening Sky

This evening I looked out the kitchen window and saw a cloudy sky. I knew that there would be some interesting views as the evening progressed.

During commercials, as I was watching some of my favorite shows, I wandered out and took some pictures.

It looks like rain may be coming soon, but is not in the forecast until Saturday. Perhaps I better get out and mow my front yard tomorrow evening.

It has been really weird going outside this week. It is so much quieter than normal.
