Horse Tails and Ash Tree
Now that the upper fields are cleared the big ash tree above the cottage really stands out against the sky. Here it is shown off with horse tail clouds racing eastward behind it.
Herald of Rain
My father taught me that the horse tail clouds mean a change in the weather. It’s warm, dry and sunny now so they may bring rain. We’ve had a lot of rain this year so hopefully this will just be a quick light storm. We could use some long spells of dry sunny weather for getting hay in and growing the gardens.
Horse Tails Whipping
These images were from yesterday evening, just after we had finished taking down the hay shed as the sun set over the notch between Sugar Mountain and Bear Ridge up behind the north field. The low light made the sky very dramatic.
