Fall Color Begins

Early morning color

Thanks to my commute, I am usually walking to catch the bus as the sun comes up. Lately the sky has had some fantastic color happening.

One of the things I have learned from this summer's drought is that without regular rain, clouds are almost non-existant. This year, the last "normal" rain we had was back in April. After a very dry winter, we had an incredibly dry spring followed by extreme drought all summer.

Without clouds sunsets and sunrise color tends to be extremely bland. I don't think I ever really appreciated summer storms quite this way before. Here's hoping that now that the Autumn switch has been flipped we might see some deep fall rains.
