Well we didn't get thunder storms as predicted. The ground was damp when we got up, but that was about it. Still, we had interesting clouds. Munchie and I went for a car ride, and I got some pics. As I was taking the pictures, I noticed some of the trees turning fall colors already. That is unusual for where I live. We are still pretty warm here. Who knows, maybe fall is coming early this year.
I looked towards the north/west, and the sky was partially blue.
What lovely cloud formations Jeanne! I just noticed on Friday that the trees are just turning golden. They are later than last year, but there are lots of berries on them, so maybe a hard winter again. Our Japanese Maples turned colour a couple of months ago and the native Maples in the forest are losing their leaves already. The walnut tree in our garden has shed its fruit and losing leaves fast now. Autumn is definitely here now! Ellen 3001 days ago
Maybe fall is going to come early -- never too soon for me! I was up in the mountains last Saturday (driving back from Susanville) and we were noticing that the hardwoods are starting to change ... yellowing leaves, but no reds or browns yet.
I've always wanted to go to Aspen Valley, which is just NE of Yosemite, & on the way to Hetch Hetchy. Probably not this year -- guess I'll have to make do with Hope Valley instead. 3006 days ago
Wow, those were some cool clouds. We had a cool, gloomy day on Monday, but it wasn't as cloudy as yours. Our trees have been changing colours for at least a week already - and yesterday we had our first frost in the morning. YUCK! The mornings are pretty cool now, but at least the sun is still shining. 3008 days ago
