SkyWatch Friday ~ Oreo Cookie Day!

The estuary of the Yakoun River
Squished between six days of torrential rains, hurricane force winds and downright miserable weather was this gem of a day...the cream in the oreo cookie!
(Click on photos for great detail)
However the tell "tail"(cirrus clouds known as mare's tails) signs of what was to come swept in. These are Monday photos, Tuesday the average wind speed for the day was 68 kph with gusts to 110 kph and summer isn't even over yet!

Oreo cookie day! lol!

Carolyn, you should consider a career as a meteorologist! Just think of the fun... 'Today is going to be a chocolate pecan pie sort of day with apple crisp skies moving in overnight. The weekend looks like lasagna...' haha!

And you know it would be more accurate than the actual forecast! ;-)

Those are beautiful calm skies and don't hint at the mayhem that was to follow. An interesting place you call home.

VioletSky said...

What an interesting simile you've chosen! Glad you had a moment out of hte wind and rain to capture the "cream".

You must really appreciate these jewels of a day when they're interspersed with stormy weather.
One of the advantages of blogging - we tend to record these special days more.
