Sky Watch Friday - a delaying sky.

Last Sunday I should have been flying to Perth at 5 pm - the weather had other ideas!

Heavy rain - and more importantly lightning - put a stop to that.  Two hours later we took off!

Why does two hours not seem that long when I have something important to do!


I hope you find your skies to be more cooperative!

You can find more skies of all types here at Sky Watch Friday.

I love dark, scary clouds ... I don't like what they usually mean, but they are so awesome and interesting. I'm glad you were able to get where you were going. Hoping, maybe, that you will have a chance to go birding while you are there. Our skies have been dark for days ... cold, windy and rainy. Still looking forward to Spring ... hmmmm. Have a great week, Stewart.

Not good for flying, but makes for a great shot!

No, definitely not the best skies to encourage flying, but what a dramatic scene they provided you and your camera!! Terrific capture for the day, Stewart!! Have a great weekend!

Oh Stewart you need to be back over here cos it seems to me you are really missing the unpredictability of the weather. Hope the delay didn't spoil the trip.

Time really is relative! We really can't argue with the pilots though..there are way worse things than being delayed.

Now that is an angry sky! Nice moody photo. Better to wait out the storm than get knocked around by it...
Thank you for the photo!

I just had a bad experience today with a thunderstorm. Sigh. Those clouds of yours look pretty ominous. Better to wait two hours than deal with the wrath of mother nature. Safe travels to you!

Love the jet photo. My grandfather was a pilot, and I've always had a fascination with planes since I was small & flew in his two-seater with him.
Skies aren't much more cooperative here on our part of the earth.. It was a snow globe here today! No flying for me to do, but a friend of mine was delayed this morning in Minneapolis.

It is an ominous sky. Glad you had to wait to be safe. MB

Looks like sky we have had here today - over three inches of rain.
The sky certainly sets the mood for the photo.
Happy Sky Watch Friday!

Great shot! I agree anytime will do for something important. Makes me curious What is so important?

Ah nothing like a good storm. They are exciting and scary at the same time, especially when the thunder is so loud and explodes all around you.
