A sky from carols

Earlier this week we had our schools carol evening - music from the kids and 'community singing' during which most people sat silently.

The evening was about as wintry as it gets in December here - if you had a jacket you were wearing it, and if you had a spare one you were very popular.

The wind - more or less straight from the Antarctic - calmed down later on, and there were a few nice clouds.

These may not look like classic Christmas cards, but they are what we get here instead of snow!




You can find more (possibly pre-christmas) skies at Sky Watch Friday.

  4. My wife gets so tired of me saying, "I love clouds," when we're driving somewhere. We live in a great place for them...on a long peninsula between the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. The moisture off the water does great things when it hits the different temp over land. Woop woop.
