Welcome! Grab a cup of tea, and enjoy browsing some of the photos and stories. As the 'teawife,' it is my duty to watch and listen and be a supportive friend, and a loving mum and wife. I should post more often, but sticking my nose into everyone's business keeps me busy! Kathy the teawife

UFO Sighting :-)

Can you see the UFO in these pictures?!?

I am kind of pulling your leg on this one. However, you are looking at what is commonly called a UFO cloud since the shape resembles one of those flying discs out of a cheesy 1960s SciFi movie.
I'm not a meteorologist, nor do I attempt to play one on the blogosphere. However, if you do a quick search for "UFO clouds" or Lenticular clouds, you will find more information about how these interesting quirks of nature form. 
They are mostly related to higher altitudes with mountains terrain, and are associated with moist winds that blow over the mountains. That would explain why I never saw any of these weather oddities while growing up in Texas.
The clouds and winds the other day made for a glorious sunset
viewed from our back yard in Northern Colorado.
