Cloudy Skies

I enjoy watching the sky on cloudy ,stormy days,the clouds are so awesome.Sometimes they look just plain anger and sometimes they are beautiful.I took these pictures last week when the clouds blew in.They were what I call beauties they have so much puffiness to them and in a few they look like they are rolling.On clear days when the clouds are puffy and white the grand kids ,their mom and I will look for shapes in the clouds.I will bet there are quite a few of you out there who remember laying out under the clouds and hunting pictures in the sky.That is one of my fondest memories as a kid,I did it with my children ,and now I get to do it with my grandchildren.
This my sound strange to a lot of people but when hurricane Ike was coming here it was really cloudy and stormy.I was sitting out on my porch watching the clouds moving in and I looked out in the sky and saw the most wonderful picture I have ever seen in the clouds.At first I saw a hand in the clouds and I looked twice, then in that hand was an angel standing there.This very beautiful cloud angel was holding hurricane Ike in her hand.I knew then and there we were going to be spared the damage from hurricaine Ike that we received during hurricaine Katrina.We got a lot of damage in our area from Katrina and was scared Ike was going to move in and do more,but when I saw that angel standing there in that hand I knew we were going to be alright.

The clouds in these pictures look as if they are just hanging right above the ground.They are so thick and beautiful and they were very full of rain that day.

I love storm clouds!! I think one of the most amazing things is the formation of storms, and down here in central FL, they are fast and furious, with lots of lightening! I am just amazed at God's creation, and the role storms play in it.
Thanks for sharing your awesome pictures and for following my blog! I'll be back often!

I so love your photos and your story is amazing I am so glad the angle cloud spared your home. U will have to get my grandkids into looking for shapes to. My oldest told me god was in the clouds when he was 3. He came up with that by him self. I love to watch storms but not while in a car. That is when fear sets in if some one else is driving. I feel out of control.
