Sky Watch Friday *5-22-09* Refreshment Waits

After a full day at work today
I had a wonderful get-together with family.
Then, ended up in rush-hour traffic under the hot sun,
with broken air-conditioning!
~Thick Traffic ~
But I know that clearer skies and
cooler, fresher air are only a few miles away!
Ahhhhhhhhh~Home is waiting just around the bend~

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I don't know about you, but when I hit the country roads, I can BREATHE again.

And the photo in your header reminds me of my brother's home in Vermont. They live right on Lake Champlain.

Maria: That was a wonderful change in the sky as you left the city.

Mom,

FIrst of all...it makes me nervous that the first two pictures are of the road and driving... does that mean you were using your cell phone to take pictures while driving?!?! (an OMG face)

Second, I LOVE the picture of the mountains past the orchard...my FAVORITE spot driving home, makes me feel like a princess retuning home to my castle. That view is from a fairy tale.

Good morning! Knowing that it was Sky Watch Friday, I had my camera... thinking, thinking, what will I post tonight?!? Thought I'd see something on the way home from my after-work get-together...
Passed Dunkin' Donuts... sign high in the sky... hmmmm favorite coffee/ nice blue sky...
toooooo much traffic
Then... a jam of traffic at the "big four corners" This could be it... HOT air blowing out of my Air-conditioning! stopped at a RED LIGHT*
The timing couldn't get any better ~ PERFECT :D

If anyone saw me, they probable thought I was a hired detective!
Did you see the difference in air quality!?

After that traffic, it was nice and relaxing to see the mountains hugging the sky and the open road. Must have been a happy sight nearing home.

Happy weekend. :)

There is nothin' like hitting our dirt road, knowing that home is just a hundred yards down...even if I am only coming home from the grocers, just 3 miles from here!

Great photo essay!
I love how the sky changes with the distance from the city.

SandyCarlson said...

These are an amazing study of hot and cool in the sky. Very, very good. Sorry you got stuck!

VALKYRIEN said...

You can really see the air changing in your photos! From a almost foggy air - to clear-no-astma-air in sight! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
