BW photograph of storm clouds over a trailer park

The very warm, wet, definitely unseasonable weather in the Mid-Atlantic does not compare to the storms that have hammered the South over the past few days.  The same can be said for the flooding in Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay.  Australia is dealing with wildfires that are tied to the opposite of weather events-extraordinarily dry conditions.  While these kinds of losses are devastating at any time, it is especially heartbreaking to have such events occur during the holiday season.  Condolences to all who have lost family, friends, and property.

The photograph above is from southwestern Pennsylvania and those clouds look much more ominous than they turned out to be.  Within a short period of time, they smoothed out into a continuous mid-tone grey before dropping just a bit of rain, which then settled into a chilly mist.  The temperature was in the mid-40s, and that was decidedly cooler than those of the past week.  The forecast is again for much warmer temperatures in the coming week.

The photograph presents the clouds as I remember them to be.  It is very easy to use an editing program, such as Photoshop, to make them look much more threatening.  Given what is happening globally with the current weather pattern, there really is no need for false software embellishment.

Take care.
