Storm Cloud Sunset in West Texas
« on: October 23, 2020, 11:34:57 am »
A very unique sunset last night. And we got our first rain since September 10th. Only .5 inches, but enough to keep the winter wheat from dying.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Beautiful Charlie  8)

We had a very weird orange-gray sky yesterday morning, it actually got darker out as the morning went on. They said it was from Colorado’s wildfire smoke mixing with the ice particles in the sky.

Have you been staying at the ranch still?

Thanks for the nice feedback. We are supposed to get Snow the next few days. Fall lasted about 48 hours. 🤠

Nice photo of an ephemeral moment Charlie.  I'm in Fort Worth at the moment and it's all cold rain. 

Throw another log on fire out there.
