Skywatch Friday #43 - Is that Blue Sky?

It's been a week of rain, rain and MORE rain, to the point we've reached the normal rainfall total for the month of May and it's only May 7th.

This afternoon brought some clearing skies...somewhat. Still plenty of big clouds heading towards the mountains though.

Here's what it looked like just an hour or so ago.



The forecast for this Saturday is NO RAIN which is really important to me. Our Relay for Life team is having a garage sale to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Last year our team raised over $600! So please Mother Nature, keep the rain away.

Beautiful pic of the clearing skys! It did rain the last couple days... my feet are still wet!

And I'm anxious to know what you think of the slingshot!

Gorgeous juxtaposition of green land, low clouds, sky and reflections. The photo pulled me right in!

Good luck to the garage sale. Those clouds could bring some surprises, though.

Beautiful sky and reflections. I hope you raise over a $1,000 this year.

Really fabulous colors, reflections and sky! We do do it well in WA, don't we? But I'm with you, please, let's have some sun this weekend! Hope you raise lots of money!

Sally: Way to take advantage of the time to get this great reflective shot over the water.

Beautiful photo. Love the reflection of the trees in the water. Thanks for stopping by.

Unreal. It looks like there's ice in the water and green grass as contrast makes it unreal. Niiiice! Happy SWF!

Thats a beautiful shot.

Terrell has their Relay For Life next weekend. I got pics from the event last year, and I hope to go to it this year.
