SKY WATCH FRIDAY *Accumulating Cumulus* with 30 second video.

On and Off with the humidity.
HUGE billowy clouds roll in, roll out, BUT
sometimes, the cumulus accumulate!

When the thunder & lightning are so close, it makes your camera jump,
It's time to go in the house!

Big Thunderstorms the other day... There was hail in some parts of town.
My husband thought rocks were hitting his car on his commute home!

The air smelled so clean when the storm was over though...
I can Breathe! ... and... All's Good

I cannot watch the video, has something to do with access here at workplace; but the images are fabulous.

Great post! Thanks for the video and I really like the first picture of the dramatic clouds. I like dramatic weather - probably because we don't get much of that in California!

Thanks for visiting Monastery Daily Photo. And thanks for the encouragement, too.
