The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

More Mammatus!!!

What a special blessing it was to step outside Saturday evening to be greeted with a sky covered in mammatus, bold and well defined mammatus, hazy mammatus looking more like orbs, and billowing rows of mammatus.  The sky was covered in them, and I was in heaven.  I was literally hanging out the window taking pics of the sky while my wonderful groom drove.  The hazy ones in the last shot are exactly as they appeared. 
Down the road, we pulled over to grab them with sunset, but they faded as the sun dropped beneath the horizon.  I view it as a wonderful early Mothers' Day gift from God.  It encouraged me and uplifted me... especially after not being able to chase the severe and tornado warned cells that were very nearby.
As an aside, while we were pulled over, the property owner/developer stopped to offer to sell us a lot in the neighborhood he will be destroying my view with... He obviously didn't know who he was talking to...


  1. How absolutely amazing--I've never seen these kind of clouds before. Obviously it's time for a trip across country with my camera!!!

    Gorgeous! Fills my eyes--and my imagination!

  2. Wow! I've read about these in my 'Cloudspotter's Guide', but it's wonderful to see them for real.
