Sky Watch Friday -- Not photogenic but beautiful!

I usually go for the glorious sunrises or sunsets, or the big fluffy white clouds, or the really ominous storm clouds. But today I'm over-joyed to bring just plain old rain clouds! This was taken about 7:30am ... still dark because WE'RE GETTING RAIN! I know that doesn't sound thrilling to many of you who have had way too much this year. But our lake is down 1.4 feet and we need the rain. This won't fill the lake but it will help...and it will certainly help our yards, which also helps the lake. Many water-front property owners have pumps that pump lake water to their sprinkler systems. So curl up in your favorite chair with a good book and enjoy the gentle rain with me! And imagine my sweet Corgi curled up under my chair because he hates the thunder!
For those glorious sunrises and sunsets and big fluffy clouds, click the SkyWatch Friday logo! I know I will!

I hope the rain did fill the lake or make a contribution. It looks like rain in your photo.

I am happy that you got some much needed rain. People here use the pond for irrigation but the pond level is very high with all the rain. I used to enjoy the rain, now I look and hope the sump pump holds up. @:}

Rain is good. I love watching the raindrops hit water and make all those rings and ripples.

Thanks for sharing with SkyWatch Friday. Have a great weekend!

We're up to about an inch in the rain gauge and still drizzling right now.
