This past week we have had storm after storm. Each day seems to find towering cumulus building towards mid-day and storms by evening. I have stood beneath these massive clouds and literally become dizzy looking up at them. How they boil!

Step out into Pinehaven's yard and enjoy the upward view!

This cumulus (below) was standing on the western horizon as the sun was preparing to set. Such a pillar of moisture! It looked as though it was about to strike! Flaming orange about the edges, this cloud looked positively threatening as it came ever closer.

Below is a cumulus which has moved east of here. I could almost see it unfold upwards.

Though these clouds can be deadly, dropping tornadoes from their underbellies, while they are docile they are a sight to behold.
