Interesting evening skies over Maple Lake can be a rarity. We look out east over Maple Lake so the sun sets above the fields across the road. Sometimes we are lucky to see some of those sunsets reflected in the clouds over the lake.
Here is the moon rising a few evenings ago.
The wispy mare's tail clouds (scientifically known as cirrus uncinus) tell of rain soon to come. The evening that followed this was full of heavy rain, lightning and wicked winds. That is a lesson I learned from my Granddad, and one of the many reasons I think of him when venturing through the natural world.
