Another Blustery Day

I feel rather like Winnie the Pooh these days, having been blown about quite a bit over the last few days. There's a great deal of wind, occasional sun (inevitably the sun shines when I'm holed up at work in the gerbil warren that masquerades for an office--with no windows), and dependable rain and gloom when I have time off. But the sky has been showing off, and this week's contributions are all from the end of March and this morning. The opening photograph was taken at moonrise on March 29.

Today I got shots of three layers of sky: blue (way above), fluffy white and pink (in the middle), and gray moving in. Yesterday started out much the same, but cleared up and was lovely in the afternoon, albeit windy as all get out.

Now it's just plain blustery. The sky is gray above and approaching black in the west; the forecast is for storms in the afternoon. I did get some basil and nasturtiums in pots and the potager this morning, but large-scale farming will have to wait for the weekend, which the local weatherfolk, not known for their accuracy, are currently promising will be fair.

Happy Passover to my fellow Jews, and to those who celebrate it this Sunday, happy Easter. I hope this is indeed a happy Skywatch Friday for everyone.

Gorgeous skies, colors and as always I love the dark, bare trees silhouetted against sky particularly those moody skies!! Happy Passover! And may you enjoy a lovely weekend!

Beautiful skies. Our weather has moved way past blustery to damaging winds. We are hunkered down looking out at the ocean where the whitecaps and swells are pretty nasty looking. - Margy
