SkyWatch Friday: Mostly Rain

We've mostly had rainy days lately but I did catch a brief glimpse of blue on a few days.
I'm glad we have had enough rain because it keeps everything fresh.
I would rather have too much rain than too little.
I guess I should qualify that last sentence. I don't want to have any hurricanes blow through. Even strong thunderstorms can be dangerous.
The bell tower above is on the campus at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC and it was struck by lightening several years ago and had to be rebuilt.
I guess it's all a matter of balance. Anything in excess can be a problem.  
I guess drought conditions bother me because I hate to see the natural world dry up. Especially in places that aren't well adapted to drought like where I live.
We've had more than enough rain for several years now and I am beginning to relish a little blue in the sky. The greens being so fresh and clean help make up for the absence of color in the sky. Click for the home of skywatch Friday.

we didn't get enough rain here and combine that with high temps and our naturally dry weather, our fire season is starting so much earlier than normal.

Beautiful blue. I don't mind rain, but I'm a wimp about might have been able to hear me screech yesterday, when one thunderclap was a little too close for my comfort zone.
