Yesterday afternoon I drove back to the mountains where I took my header photo. It is on the way to where I board my horses and I drive this road every weekend and, during spring and fall, when there is still daylight after school, I also drive it at least one time during the week. Yesterday the mountains were covered with clouds, it was raining, and it was COLD! Icy rain was falling. I didn't drive up the road as our desert soils are saturated after five days of rain this week. Scattered showers are forecast today, but tomorrow should be sunny and clear again! I can't wait to see all the snow on these mountains tomorrow. I love these mountains. At times it seems like they are actually living, breathing things! Maybe it is because of the changes in weather and altitude? SkyWatch Friday for January 22, 2010.
