  1. Another whiff here. The afternoon convection fired up one county north and then zipped to the northeast. It did push out a boundary though. The boundary moved about two counties south of me when it fired up for the evening convection. So still parched here. Maye tomorrow, or the next day, or the next....
  2. Any serious cirrus fans would have loved 6-20. Looking south when I got out to the overpass. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... Looking west as the post sunset color gets ramped up. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... Looking east as some reds try to make into the area. Taken with the 24-70mm at 61mm... Last dregs in the west taken with 24-70mm at 70mm...
  3. 6-19, stagnant pattern brings stagnant results. But not really. The volume of clouds was up on this day. Ripples in the morning cirrus. taken ith the 24-70mm at 28mm... Going to skip straight to the post sunset color. When it began. taken with the 24-70mm at 50mm... Here comes the red from above. Taken with the 24-70mm at 30mm... I brake for all colorful post sunsets. Taken with the 24-70mm at 44mm... Cheers!
  4. 6-18 started a string of days that looked very similar. The pattern was stagnant with a slight disturbance in Missouri that would float cirrus over me for a number of days in a row. It started kind of lean. The beginning of the post sunset color. Taken with the 24-70mm at 57mm... Looking to the north, had some nice zebra action going on. Stripes upon stripes ( wires ). Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... The last of the post sunset color. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...
  5. Keeping my fingers crossed that the stuff in central Illinois holds together enough to get us wet in central Indiana.
  6. 6-15 was one of those evening that had a little bit of everything. When I first got out there, there was a nice design to the cirrus. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm... A bit later I tried a similar cirrus image but this time I used the GND to even out the light across the image. Of course, it kind of messed up the colors some. You can be the judge if it is too cartoonish or not. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm... The actual sunset had a little bit of gold and a little bit of bronze. Taken with the 24-70mm at 57mm... There was just a little bit of an orange flash to end the evening. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... Cheers!
  7. Not to be cruel but aren't you there all the time anyway?
  8. Is Doom's first name, Flash?
  9. Just in case someone needs some visual refreshing on this first day of summer...
  10. 6-13 was a day of unsettled weather in the area. Rain in the morning here and a tornado in the Chicago area. So plenty of clouds around for sunset. As the Sun was sinking into the horizon. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... The beginning of the post sunset color. taken with the 24-70mm at 50mm... And the end of the color with the color on the flanks of the Chicago MCS as it slipped to my north. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...
  11. Happy Summer everyone! The summer solstice is behind us as of 5:13 this morning. And now for your first ray of summer sunshine. "Play it again Sam".
  12. Still nine days behind the curve. Maybe some day I will catch up. 6-12 was a varied evening. Had a weak 22 degree halo around the Sun as I got out to the firehouse. Taken with the 24-70mm at 28mm... Some weak crepuscular rays. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... The beginning of the post sunset color. Taken with the 24-70mm at 38mm... The end of the post sunset color. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm...
  13. Yes, it is. And yes, it can be. Yet Reed yelling tornado, Josh hangin on to a palm as building parts flash by his head and Frankie telling the world that Fargo is going to be inhospitable is what gets the clicks and likes. Makes no sense. But I will continue to show the weather in its beauty in stealth. It just looks so cool that I have to do it.
  14. The evening of 6-9 started off as a perfect cumulus visage. Started off looking southwest when I parked in front of the firehouse. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm... Looking northwest when I got to the top of the overpass. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm... And even looking to the east. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm... The cumulus melted and moved off by the time the post sunset got going. Still looked rather decent. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... Cheers!
  15. Plenty of cloud action on 6-7. Started off with some late afternoon cumulus off to the east. Taken with the 24-70mm at 41mm... A look to the east northeast when I got out to the firehouse for the sunset. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm... A view to the northwest as the Sun got close to the horizon. Taken with the 100mm... The post sunset color tried but was rather lacking. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm... As I was walking back to the car there was a brief sot of red flash off in the distance to the southwest. Taken with the 24-70mm at 50mm...
  16. 6-5 had a nice sunset. Plenty of cloud types to start the evening. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm... Looked good vertically also. Taken with the 24-70mm at 35mm... As the color just started to get going. Taken with the 24-70mm at 50mm... Ending the evening with some large scale cirrus ripples. Taken with the 24-70mm at 55mm...
  17. That makes sense to me. I do remember never having A/C in cars, and having all the windows open and the wing vents cranked all the way around, so you were jamming as much hot air into the car as possible. Just this evening as I was watching the Sun set a gal drove past with the windows up, A/C crankin' and Facetiming or TikToking away on her phone. I thought that back in the day the wind noise would have ruined her do and made making any kind of video with all the wind noise rather problematic.
  18. 95 mph straight line winds are wicked. A hurricane in the Midwest.
  19. Best KIND could do was 93/74/103. There was a 76 dewpoint earlier in the morning, but the temps then were still in the upper 80's. Still felt like you walked into a thick wall when you stepped outside.
  20. 91/79/108 was the best KIND could do before the MCS rolled through. Was kind of oppressive outside.
  21. I put those coordinates in a map finder and get the corner of Dallas and Elm Streets. Your basement?
  22. I do not find that surprising as Cotulla is only 5 degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer and this is the second week of June. The Sun is dang near straight overhead now at the median.
  23. 6-3 was another minimalist evening as far clouds. Started off in my side yard. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm... First image out behind the firehouse. Taken with the 24-70mm at 33mm... About the best dynamics for the evening. Taken with the 24-70mm at 44mm... The last dregs. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...
  24. After a long stretch of where could only eek out 0.10" or so each rain episode, yesterday finally had a respectable 0.84". Looks like might be able to add some more today. I'll take whatever, going to need the moisture in the ground for what is coming up.
