After the Storm

Sky Watch Friday
SWF - The Child of Old Wom Tigley - a most brilliant fellow!

Last week we had a terrific storm here in Connecticut. It's aftermath were many incredible After the Storm skies. Little did I know that as my friend and neighbor, Mental Mama was taking this photo of the sky out her front door for last week's Sky Watch Friday (which she took while pointing directly toward my house), I was taking the above photo of the same sky out my back door!
Isn't it grand??
Two views of the very same sky!
(MPM's home is one street over and to the far far
left of where I aimed the camera for this photo.)

I took this the same day. This shot is pointed directly at MPM's home,
which you could see if the trees were gone.

Glad I'm not able see her home. I'd miss my trees!

Looking straight up into heaven from my back yard.
Yesterday's blue, blue sky. Hmm...
I do believe this particular ~sky blue~ is my very favorite color.

Well, there's also green...and red....and orange...and....o nevermind!
(All 3 photos were taken by me.)
