I took these pictures about 3:30 p.m. today. We live in Central Oregon and a thunder storm is rolling in. They are calling for dry lightening strikes for the next few days. We are extremely dry, the forest floor is like kindling.

I thought the clouds were rather interesting in the pre- storm shape.

I'm in PA. Clouds rolled in here as well & we lost electricity at 3:30p.m. and did not get it back till 7:30p.m. At least we got a little rain. It's been dry here as well this summer.

I was thinking great handpainted fabric. We had rain yesterday and a little this am, clear and sunny the rest of the day.

If we saw those clouds in Iowa, we would be expecting hail.

Thanks ChasingHawk. I'm in Central Washington. I wonder what way those clouds are going. Can you tell? We were suppose to get some clouds in on Tuesday and you know the weatherpeople are never wrong (just kidding).
If they would bring rain that would be great but it don't sound like it. I hope no fires are sparked anywhere. Scary situation. Cool pictures though. :thumbup: Keep us posted.

We had enough rain last night that the pool overflowed.
