Serene Scenery Sunday. Sort Of.

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me, Ammy! I was all set to tell you about the special adventure Mom and I went on this week, and was busy sorting through the photos and just knew they'd make a wonderful Serene Scenery Sunday post! See... we went in search of sunflowers and other wildflowers and found some really lovely things up here:

Me. Ammy. In "The Little Apple".

Only yesterday, as I was helping process all the photos... we had a huge storm roll in! It was just an awesome sight and I have to share the pix with you! To start things off, let's look at a panoramic shot we put together:

That was the scene out front! It
IS a scene. Just not really too serene. Want to see a video? Here you go:



Isn't it incredible?!? Here's a bit of a close up:

And a little to the left on the shelf cloud:

I think our neighbor in the silver car is getting home just in time!

Most of our storms roll in from the west -- the
view we have off our deck -- but this one came in from the north! Here's the view from out back anyway:

Still mighty impressive!

Well, that's it for yesterday's storm. It was mighty wild - they even delayed the KSU football game by an hour and a half, until the lightning was out of the area! Tomorrow, I'll fill you in on my wildflower adventure, OK? In the meantime, maybe this will make you a bit more serene:

See you tomorrow!

Love,

  1. Yikes! That storm is very scary looking! We're glad it didn't cause any damage other than delaying the K-State game. Just looking at those clouds gave our mommy butterflies in her belly because she hates storms with a little s. We do love those pictures of you though Ammy!

  3. Ammy, those pictures and the video are really scary looking! Mom hates storms and I have to protect her. She's always afraid that the wind will rip the house away or the lightning will come in on her. I have to be brave and comfort her. Your picture as always makes her smile..you always look like you are so happy! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  5. Wow Ammy, what a storm! Those clouds are amazing! I'm glad I wasn't there though; I am afraid of thunder.
