Ominous skies and white

Last night we had a rather large thunderstorm roll through, complete with high winds, heavy rain and hail.  We sat in our living room and watched the most ominous-looking black cloud (almost looked like a blanket) move across the sky (one of the most scary skies I've ever witnessed).  I ran out with the camera and tried to get a decent shot.  This was taken at about 7:30 last night, when it should have been broad daylight....




Within a few minutes of taking this picture, the sky was completely black.  Definitely scary!!


To go to the opposite extreme of the colour spectrum, here's the latest section I just completed for my second white cloth.  I think there should be only one more left to do and then I can start to put it together.






Today the quote is from anonymous.... "We are each of us angels with only one wing and we can only fly by embracing one another"

We had that storm the night before. The lightening was intense. I was glad because it got rid of the high humidity.
