Stormy Skys photo challenge

Storms a brewin!

Crazy weather here in Northern California. We got dumped on here in the Sacramento valley. It even hailed in Roseville where I live. As I was heading home yesterday I took this shot with my cell phone! I am facing NE toward the Sierra's. As you can see where I am at this intersection we had sun and puffy white clouds. My Dad had to drive to the foothills where he lives and called me when he got there. He said he came home to Christmas! LOL It very rarely snows where he lives.

I am entering this shot in the Bloggers Community Photo Challenge. There are no winners it is just a challenge so I thought this would be fun!

I hope everyone has a sunny fun weekend!

What an interesting pic, Candy! Looks like a twister is approaching and you are in Kansas with the field and tower there on right!!! :) I understand it was to be a cold weekend there in CA! Funny how the weather changes so quickly! Good luck in your photo contest!!! It's a good one!!!

Thanks everyone! I am glad I entered too Marie. I like no winner cause every picture is interesting in it's own right!

Blue sky today but pretty cool. Not a good succulent day. And tonight it should freeze. Yikes!

The weather here has been quite unpredictable. The morning can start of with a clear blue sky but in the afternoon, suddenly we can have dark clouds and rain...

Hope the sky is clear for you now though ;-) Have a great day!

Yeah, since moving from Wisconsin to SF, CA...we just don't see those exciting cloud formations. But those storms this past 10 days have been wicked. Matti

What an ominous-looking sky! Unfortunately, here in Wisconsin all we are getting this time of year is freezing rain and snow.

You must have one heck of a cell phone! That's a really great photo. Good luck in the photo challenge--hope you win it!

Wicked looking sky...I don't think I would like to be in the vicinity of that approaching storm. :)

Thanks Matt and Bobbie for the great comment. I have a 2 year old tmobile sidekick that I can't wait to get rid of. I was pretty surprised at the pic because I don't take many with it. May have to use it more even after I get a new phone.

Thanks Debbie! I was going in the opposite direction thank goodness!
