Cloud Watcher

Driving across Arkansas, I was "cloud watching." I took note of the huge white puffy clouds that looked like cloud kingdoms crossing the blue sky. Although it was a bright, sunny day there were tons of cumulus clouds in the sky.

I could also see far off dark clouds that surrounded the cumulus ones. As we got closer to Oklahoma, the clouds became closer. (Now I don't know how many of you have heard about Oklahoma's 17 day straight rain streak and the flooding, but it has been going on.) Then, as if by magic, we crossed the Oklahoma border and the sky became covered with dark rain clouds.

As we neared the Sonic we would be eating lunch at, it became even more cloudy in the sky. Then, suddenly, after we ordered, it started drizzling and then raining more violently. We all decided to wait it out in the car until the storm let up a bit but the rain was relentless and we finally just decided to continue on the road.

It is not every day that you are a cloud watcher and just happen to arrive in a state where a storm has been going on for 17 days on and off but you can leave it to us to get that done!
