Winter storms, Part 2


Here's the rest of my March- April- May images, 
everything from feathery cirrus to snarling anger












Summer is here if i can look westward from my fifth floor breezeway, and see a blanket of fog thick enough to slide over the peak of Mt Tamalpais (2400 ft/elev. +/-) only a few miles from the ocean.




And windy? OMG, as fog burns off the warmer air rushes inland.



No mo' rain 'til October - next post? Probably foggy - the images, i mean - 
not the text, that will be coherent.

Winter rains are over!


March and April have been interesting months, storms have been getting progressively weaker, moving thru faster, and now it is over. The Sierra snowpack is awesome, reservoirs are even letting some water go for fear there won't be enough space to take in the melting snow. I read something about how some Tahoe ski resorts are thinking they can stay open all summer. I've taken almost 300 shots of the aerial festivities I've been treated to, edited them down to 15 - which is enough for two posts.

So in no particular order, here's the take:













 What are these odd horizontal strips about? I have no idea except to wonder.







Title for the above? "Orphan cloud"



Judy Garland would like this one.
I think Jeff Beck has done a marvelous rendition,
I'm sure you can find it on youtube.

Stop in again in a couple of weeks for part two of March/April images.
