Evening Sky

After the Storm
After 5 straight days of temperatures over 100, more like 106 with the heat index running about 110 to 115. It finally broke last night. We had a cool front come through and got some much needed rain. We had a lot of thunder and lightening as well. The town west of us had winds of 93 mph. They called it a micro-burst.Quite a bit of damage with trees down etc. We did not get that wind but we did get this beautiful sky. This is facing west north west and just after the sun took a hike over the hill.

The Moon
Then when my husband was leaving for work he said look at that moon. This was taken just a little south of the other photo, facing a bit more true west.

I have not been progressing too much on my Use It Up. I have been trying to get my things ready for my month in the Bees Knees. My printer died on me just when I needed it. So I got a new one and all it wanted to do was eat my paper so I took it back and got a different one. Happy to say this one works better! It is such an ordeal when anything like that happens because it is a 30 mile trek to the store,(one way) and in all the heat we have had lately it wasn't pleasant. But at least I am all set now and can get my packets together. Have a nice weekend everyone!

Beautiful sky pics! Glad you got a printer that works. I know what it's like to have to travel for stuff like that!

Those are some amazing photos!
We live in a small town too, so the fabric store, etc., are about 30 minutes away. Makes it a pain, but I wouldn't want to live in those bigger towns! (Was raised in a town of 500! Now live in the next town over, with a pop of about 7500.)

Beautiful photos! Good for you on the 'cool front', and that you didn't get the terrible winds. Printer troubles. I feel your frustration.

Beautiful photos!

Glad to hear you're getting some cooler temps. I think (hope!) that we're supposed to get a little relief here too; hopefully we'll get some mosquito relief as well because they are more unbearable than the temps.

Looking forward to seeing what you have planned for us in TBK!

What a sight, Marlene -- It reminds me of the tornado in Wizard of Oz...

Sorry to hear about your printer. Sometimes, technology can be extremely annoying! :0)
