We've had a month of gorgeous summer weather, including an incredibly hot week which I didn't enjoy but it's been quite pleasant since. A month or so without rain with weeks of summer still ahead has me wondering if we are going into a drought? At least we have plenty of water in the mountains from all the heavy snow pack that came after the Winter Games.
Some amazing skies too, like on the two evenings pictured above viewed from our back deck. This evening's unusually long feather-shaped cloud went right overhead and did not fit into the camera frame. We're so fortunate to usually have cool evenings when a light fresh breeze comes wafting down the hill after dark, drifting inside through open windows and doors. We leave them wide open in our bedroom as we sleep, something I could not tolerate in the damper times of the year.
UPDATE July 26th: The long feather cloud is a CHEMTRAIL! Please read Natalie's comments below and check out the links she's generously provided, especially the last one. You will be shocked and disturbed. How do we stop this??
