Clouding My Vision

I've had this fixation with clouds lately and there have been some totally fascinating clouds in the skies over Norwich that have been feeding that fascination. This weekend was supposed to be one of those perfect May weekends without a cloud in the sky but, as it turned out, there were some rather interesting ones marching across the sky.

One of the best places to spot clouds is from the window in dispatch at work and even though I had initially thought about bringing my camera with me this morning, I foolishly believed the weathermen and left it at home. As I was kicking myself for not having brought it with me, I remembered that my cellphone has a fairly decent camera so I dug it out of my lunch bag (we aren't allowed to have cellphones on us in dispatch anymore due to a new policy) and snapped this picture really quick.

Absolutely beautiful clouds, aren't they? And not bad with a cellphone camera! I can only imagine, though, how nice they would be if I had one of those really nice cameras like Misty Dawn has!

Hope everyone is having a nice Memorial Day weekend and enjoying the long weekend that comes courtesy of our United States military and the men and women who served our country and gave you not only Memorial Day but the freedom to celebrate it!

Now go eat another hot dog and then go play my Pain at the Pump Meme!


  1. Thank you for your service past and present.

    On this Memorial Day remember my friends who died for your freedom.

    Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer “am I worth dying for?”~

  3. Those are beautiful clouds Linda, we have dark ones here at the moment. :(

  4. Linda, I have always loved cloud watching..even sitting by the pool in the summer...I sometimes take one of the rafts and glide across the pool making up stories about the clouds (the grandchildren love it)

    No hot dogs for us today. (I'm sure Carrie is thankful for that) We're having chicken and beef shish ka bobs. :)
    (That is if I can get hubby to fire up the grill.)

    Oh, yeah...and THANKS for the EC ad today. :)

  7. That is indeed well taken with a cell camera.

  8. I just wanted to take a minute this weekend to thank you for your service, and for the service of your family.

    Also, thank you for continuing to serve as an emergency services dispatcher.

  9. I think it's a GREAT pic! I would have never guessed it was from a cell phone. Thank you for the compliment... now, just imagine what those sunset photos of mine will be like when I finally save up enough for that professional camera I dream about.

    And, yes, I have to repeat what others have said - Thank YOU, my friend!

  10. may is lovely isn't it?
