Skywatch Friday: You Can't Touch This--Maybe

IMG 9473

Here is a sky view from Topsmead State Park in Litchfield, Connecticut, on the Sunday before the Incredible Weirdness came and dashed and dashed and dashed snow all over us before it disappeared without a trace--beyond the incredibly late-November-like cold. The sky was a terrible tease. The clouds seemed within reach, but there was no taking hold of them.

  1. What magnificent clouds! They do look close enough to touch -- wishfully at least!

    Have a great weekend, Sandy!

  16. Such drama! I'm not surprised they were crazy and dropped snow on you. I cannot believe you had snow before me. (Secretly snickering.)

  17. the weather gods must be on something to be so confused about the seasons ... they misplaced Spring, shorted us on Summer and now they are turning Fall into Winter!

    BUT what a glorious sky!

  31. Hmm, snow is a word I never hear or see in our forecast, but sometimes I would mind a sprinkle or two... as long as it disappeared as fast as it came. Nice sky shot, Sandy.
