Storms for Miles

Posted in Nature, Photography, Stormy Skies by leahyetter on June 23, 2011

In these wide open spaces, you can see a storm forming several miles away.

With these thick clouds, you’d think a funnel would form at any minute.
Fortunately on this day, we only saw sheets of rain in the distance.

The girls have already accepted the fact that they will get soaked.

Some areas get pounded by rain and hail and then it’s dry as can be elsewhere, and sometimes that all happens in the same meadow.

And almost always, as soon as the storm passes, the sun comes out and graces us with a beautiful rainbow.

    Is it true that cows lay down when they know it’s going to rain? I sure hope so. I’ve been using cow posture as a barometer for years…

    Ha! You ladies are hilarious. Maybe they do lay down for that dry piece of grass but I’ve mostly seen them standing, soaking wet, chewing their wet cud, and mad as hell. I on the other hand usually lay down during storms…
