We've had a long drought and we've missed our normal cloudscape that comes with normal precipitation. Had a wonderful thunderstorm the other day, and are starting to get clouds popping everywhere ... finally. Ansel Adams had a famous picture of a huge thundercloud over Lake Tahoe - actually east of Tahoe and over our valley. We haven't seen them for awhile.
We usually get them in June, but haven't seen them in a few years as we've had a drought. The rain is nice and we're hoping for more. In the meantime, the abundant clouds make our landscapes gorgeous.
Beautiful country with gorgeous clouds to accentuate it ... Heaven on earth is where we live.
