In the most recent days of concentrating on floods and all they encompass, residents of Iowa have seen many endless photos and videos of water and destruction. In our days of technology we have been glued to our televisions, our computers, and our phones. While Mother Nature has yet again lashed us with her fury, she has also blessed us with her amazing artistic abilities when we take time to look to the skies.
Many people shutter at the thought of more downpours that accompany thunder and lightning. These stormy clouds rolled in June 9 and brought with them a relief from the stuffy, drenching humidity through cool breezes and chilly droplets of rain. It was as if watching the hynotic twirl of cotton candy being wound around it's paper cone, light and fluffy. However it was almost unappetizing in it's several shades of gray and white.
The churning lasted only a few minutes but left images far to bold to forget. In our current time of trial and technology, once in a while one should look to the sky. It is a show all it's own.
