Wild, Wild Weather


Sometimes the clouds look like


wild horses


 thundering through the mountains and canyons


 Sometimes the clouds look like


cotton candy frosting


on a light as air cupcake.

Keeping those in severe weather areas in prayer.
Wishing the wild, wild weather to become calm once again
and for their days to be much, much sweeter!

Birth pangs...that's what I'm seeing. Our tornado season doesn't get under way until June....I plan on taking refuge under His wings.

Those thundering wild horses came through here last night and took out the top of a large tree. Very minor happening though, compared to others in severe weather areas.

Cathy said...

Such wonderful pictures Maria. I love each one of them. Seeing them reminds of the greatness and power of God! Thanks for sharing.

Have a great weekend.

Those wild horses certainly came through here yesterday! It was a very tense and frightening time for a large part of Illinois. We got lucky, a few trees down in the area, a few hours in the dark...but, that was it! Love the photos and the way you think!

Julie Harward said...

It sure is and here today it's super wild...we need Spring..but I am not complaining, I don't have a right to after all they are going through!

The picture of the wild horses is stunning, Maria.
Our sky is pretty dark and scary today, and so it will be tomorrow.
How is Jason doing in Texas, city of the star. Am I right? I saw many houses in the US with a big star on the wall. Have a terrific Thursday, a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend sweet friend.
I am cooking at the moment, tonight there is this parents meeting at school. No huge cups filled with tea and my favorite magazine for me tonight.
Lots of love o xx o

Beautiful post but your "light as air cupcake" reminded me of my mom many years ago when she joined TOPS--"Take off pounds sensibly" --she was told that those "light as air" cream puffs she so enjoyed were adding tons of weight to her frame--

Things are not always as they seem although you seem to be able to "get away" with the sweet eating. Don't know how you stay so little.

Thanks for thinking of us here in Little Rock--we had four killed in our state in the last 24 hours--Joplin is about a four to five hour drive from us--not far--! My heart is broken for them.

My kids in Tulsa had a close scare night before last but are safe and sound.

Thanks dear Maria for your love and concern.

Wow - those wild wild skies are phenomenal!

Prayer for people tossed about by such-looking clouds... I have family living in a shelter who will go home soon to find out if their home is still there. I join you in prayer!
Lovely post.

Liz said...

I've thought of horses too. Happy sky watching!

Very creative and artistic sequence. The clouds look like wild horses.

Mona Sweden said...

Amazing clouds. Great capture of the lightning.

EG Wow said...

Wonderful capture of the lightning! You were brave to be out in thee storm.

Riet said...

Wow so beautiful. I can see those horses too in that cloud. Stunning.

Sylvia K said...

Superb captures and post for the day! I, too, can see the horses and I love them. The weather has been frightening in so many places. I hate to whine about just rain and gray skies! Hopefully the warmth and beauty of spring will help heal the horror of such violent weather that so many have experienced this year! Stay safe and dry and enjoy a lovely weekend!

Those horses and the lightning are amazing.

Barb said...

Oh, Maria - after that last photo, I looked back at all the clouds, and they're all looking like cupcakes to me!

EcoRover said...

I like those billowing cumulus--you know lightning is coming!

Gloria said...

A beautiful post! My thoughts and prayers are with those hit by the affects of bad weather. May God be with them and comfort them.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful thoughts and photos with us. I love your dish washing photo...it is so cute!!!

Blessings for a lovely weekend, sweet Maria.

Doreen said...

Really neat photos of the clouds. The wild horse is incredible. Like Gloria, I always think of God when I see incredible clouds and sky. Yes- praying for those affected by storms.

«Louis» thanks you for your visit and comment.

Re "B SQUARED" - like you, «Louis» misses his blog and comments. He doesn't know all the details, but «Louis» does know that (as the saying goes) "life intervened" and "B SQUARED" found that he no longer had time to blog and comment. «Louis» remains hopeful that one day soon "B SQUARED" will once again cruise by in the FTLDP Staff Limo, a.k.a. Yugo, and greet his many friends in the Blogosphere.

LauraX said...

Beautiful and exciting skies...my prayers too are with those facing devastation from ferocious weather.

Stan said...

Grand set of images!! That lightning strike is huge!

Wanda said...

Oh my Maria, what outstanding sky shots.

That cupcake looks so delicious.

Have a great weekend.
