In the Western Sky

wintry sky in Taos, NM

My favorite volcano again, too

Out here in the Terrible High Desert™, winter likes to try to sneak back in this time of year, especially if it sees you trying to stretch that firewood. I should have known better, I’m probably responsible. A little of that cheapo bullshit goes a long way. At any rate, those long blue-gray descending plumes are snow. They’d look white if they weren’t in shadow.

Looking at this now, a little after midnight, it’s like the clouds are burning—as if anything would with twenty-eight degrees outside and a little bit of snow. (We sure are glad it’s spring.) There was something going on up there, though, with all that wind and water vapor in the sun. What a dynamic sky.

      This is the best place to watch clouds. When the weather’s warmer, that’s all we do sometimes. I can’t imagine shutting myself up indoors with all this business going on.

    Did you notice that snow storm on half the mountain, blue sky in the west and something else going on with the southern mountains. Spring time in the Rockies often includes many weather patterns only a few miles apart. Reminds me of a John Marin painting.
