Stormy Sunday

Sunday, 28 June 2020

I woke up in the middle of the night, glanced out my bedroom window and noticed the crescent moon. It looked pretty. I could see the sleeping giant form of the Eardley escarpment. The red light on top of the tower blinked normally yet seemed smaller…perhaps less clear.

I looked out again ten minutes later, the moon, still looking lovely, had taken on a mystical feel with dense clouds surrounding it. The blinking red light could not be seen. The Eardley escarpment vanished. Strange.

I looked out again, ten minutes later…need I add I didn’t get much sleep last night?! … Not only was the escarpment still gone, but now my neighbour’s barn had disappeared, as did the field across from my house. The moon was still visible but barely.

It was too dark to see for certain if fog had rolled in or a large cloud system moved in. After thinking it, I realized clouds wouldn’t block or hide houses…must be fog. It was a surreal experience.

Upon waking several hours later at dawn, I could clearly see the fog that blanketed the area, hiding the field, barn and the escarpment from my view. This would have been an opportune moment to grab my camera and take pictures but…I was up quite a bit during the night 😉 so I turned over and fell back to sleep.

Lots of storms rolled through today, making for awesome cloud photos:

My nephew built my new computer today! I’ve been ordering parts since the beginning of March, the last piece arrived on Friday, and now, all the pieces have come together. Can’t wait to get it moved into my room and get creating on it!
