As of 11:10 PM on Friday night, September 4, 2009 - we are TIED for the number of blog followers! You have 100 followers (CONGRATS!) and so do I! Well - I guess we are both famous and adored by our fans! Ready, set, go - I'll get to 150 before you ...
This is what our sky is going to look like for the next couple of days.Have a great weekend!
Clouds are an amazing part of our world. Love the colors. Nice shot, I can almost feel the rain!
I can feel the hot moist air in your picture, the rumbling of thunder. It is exciting and I know it brings relief for a while.
Spectacular clouds, I'd like something like that over here...
We had a storm yesterday, first rain since July 8th. It lasted almost 10 minutes...Beautiful cloudy sky!
So you get a thunderstorm EVERY day in summer? Hmmm.
Oh, you really catch it bearing down on that mall. Nice shot.
one of the things I love about blogging is how it makes the world seem closer while broadening our awareness of other places and peoplethis shot is so similar to a shot I took at my local mallgiant parking lots are a great place to watch the sky
I love weather like this...I suppose I might get tired of it if it was all the time but I don't really think so.
WOW! Great capture of that dramatic sky, Jacob! SUPER!! Powerful picture.
@ EG - Well, not EVERY day! But they are quite frequent. It was the same in South Florida. But there we'd watch them roll over from the Everglades...truly scary at times!
Awesome sky! Btw, I had no idea that Ocala was Horse Capital of the World!
Thunderstorms are fairly common in the summer through most of the southeast, but they seem to pass pretty quick...
Oh my--that cloud looks like it has a belly full of rain.We have had some rain(thank goodness) but yesterday was beautiful but it is raining again. Now! MB
@ Lee and all: These storms often knock the temperature down - sometimes as much as ten degrees - which is very, very nice. Except...it also become very humid. Well, and sometimes they form tornadoes...Other than that...
That looks ominous. I can't stop looking at your banner photo though.
Nice shot Jacob! It's been looking like that a lot here too.
I'd like to see a sky like this here. It rained some recently, but no beauty in the sky.
Incredible! The clouds seem to be really low!Answering to your question:During the Discoveries Age, navigators brought everything that was new to the Old World, so I'm sure opuntias were also 'imported' these days.
I thought you were in hurricane country, not tornado country. Not that either one sounds inviting, but the clouds are sure nice!
@ Tapirgal - This is big time tornado country...and then one of the biggest problems with hurricanes is that they often spawn tornadoes...No problems so far this year, but we're keeping our fingers crossed.
@ JM - That makes sense. Didn't they also import potatoes and corn?
Beautiful shot and lovely clouds !! This is fantastic..
Magnificent, scary Florida sky. Great photo.
Another reason to get into the mall and take pictures of the other shoppers. By the way, up here in the NE this year we have had to prepare for more hurricanes than you have.
@ Antjas - That's pretty crazy, isn't it? Not fun, for sure!
I love this - it actually looks as if that building, and that building only, is going to get the fallout from the black cloud. You've captured the cloud movement perfectly too.
funny comment of Mr. Hagan .. :)interesting competition
Marvelous sky! Love the big clouds! Hope the hurricane season remains quiet this year.
@ Beachlike - Mr. Hagan is from Minnesota. It's very cold up in Minnesota. The doctors think Mr. Hagan's brain has been frozen once too often!;-))
