Headline: spring comes in February from now on

Its official: I'm sick of winter. So, I rummaged through my favorite sky photos from last summer when we rode the motorcycle to Iowa and back along the Mississippi River. The corn was high, hay was already cut once or twice and that big, blue Midwestern sky was incredibly full of clouds. Behold my dreamy contributions to this week's Skywatch Friday.


Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved. — Søren Kierkegaard

I'm with you: recalling the past and anticipating the future seasons.
Those great clouds will come again. Soon (-ish).Good to see them.

Hi - I can see why you are sick of winter if you get skies that that in summer (but lets not forget that winter has its charms!!!)

Cheers Stewart M

February is the worst. Even with two family birthdays, it doesn't break up the monotony of winter. It's the worst 28 or 29 days of the year.

Those photos are especially appealing when one is looking out the window at two feet of snow!
