Stormy, Starry Night…

Here are some pictures I took at the beginning of July while a big thunder cloud rolled over the farm in the middle of the night…IMG_2226

The National Weather Service contacted me and asked if they could use the above photo in a safety video!  IMG_2260

The Billings Gazette even used one…IMG_4712IMG_2272-2

The producer of NBC news even contacted me about using them!  Pretty neat, if you ask me.  🙂

Twinkly Stars…

Last night we watched this crescent moon set, with a huge dark cloud hanging over it.  The only thing visible in the sky was this little moon…

Then slowly the clouds started to part…IMG_0193-2

Reveling twinkling stars…IMG_0196-2 IMG_0200-2 IMG_0203-2

All within a half hour, the sky went from completely socked in to just a few little clouds here and there.  Then as we walked home I accidentally hit my camera remote and this was what it recorded in thirty seconds… IMG_0205-2

Kind of funny!

This Western Bluebird literally flew down in front of me and was joined by a finch of some sort, which didn’t stay around very long.    Despite the cold, cloudy days, spring is coming!
