"Time and the bell have buried the day,
The black cloud carries the sun away."
T.S. (Thomas Stearns) Eliot (1888-1965), U.S.-born—British poet, critic. "Four Quartets 1: Burnt Norton," IV. lines 1-2, 1935
TIME: 5:25 PM
PLACE: Looking Northwest off the Back Porch
SUBJECT: Storm clouds
More rain arrived this morning. Around 10:30am, it stopped and the kids and I left to spend big bucks at the grocery store, the farmer's market and the milk store (where I like to buy our milk in 1/2 gallon glass bottles-it just tastes better in glass!) The sun peeked out for a little while this afternoon and then another storm front moved in. This front arrived just in time to cancel MonkeyBoy's baseball game. We had a tornado watch in effect as well. I was hoping to capture some lightning, but did not have any luck.
