Rain Down the Road

We are driving toward a rain storm. Although the road is dry where I am, 200 yards down the road is a hard rain.  Click to enlarge the picture and you can see the dark line of rain on the highway just beyond the car in front of us.

This time of year in Oklahoma there is always a chance of rain. Storms move in and out with little warning. The weather man on TV does his best but weather here is unpredictable. Our best source of information is Smokey the weather dog. Regardless of the weather forecast, when Smokey starts to shiver its getting ready to rain.

Hello, Bill.

C'est une magnifique photo où le contraste des teintes est extraordinaire. Agrandie, elle rend beaucoup mieux.
Ici aussi, on sait qu'il y a un orage dans l'air (alors que nous n'entendons strictement rien) quand notre vieille chienne bouge tout le temps avec une allure angoissée ; elle déteste l'orage et se met à trembler quand il se rapproche.
Quant au teckel, il s'en fout royalement !

Wow! I don't think I would like being caught in that storm.

Amazing picture though, I love the contrast.

Now go take a hot shower and dry yourself! ;)

That is one black sky and an amazing contrast between dry and wet. Not sure I would like to live with those conditions but, still, I suppose one gets used to extreme weather patterns. Personally, give me dull and boring English weather - I don't think I could drive in those sort of conditions.
