Skywatch Friday - Big Fluffy Clouds

Massive Cumulus clouds as far as the eye can see tower over the neighborhood near 15th and South Louisville.   Clouds like these are not unusual in Oklahoma's summertime.  They roll over while the sun goes in and out teasing us with patches of sun and shade.  Sometimes they spit out some rain here and there.  There is a permanent 20% chance of rain in Tulsa.  It can rain a block away from you and be dry as a bone where you are.  That is one of the things that make Oklahoma such a great place to live.

would absolutely have preferred to be among the 80%! :-)

PS The ABC Wednesday meme is weekly, not daily - otherwise.... :-) . I see they have changed the wording a bit and that makes it to my mind easier to misunderstand. In practice you post sometime on Tuesday afternoon (European time) and log on at the site in the evening. I have taken part a bit on and off) since S in the first round. A great opportunity to exercise lateral thinking :-)

Gorgeous clouds and I'm sure RuneE knows exactly what he's talking about - I got as far as the word "meme" (which I dont't understand) and then he absolutely lost me. However as he's put in a couple of ":-)s" I'm assuming it's amusing!

I think I should sign this off "Lost in England" :-)

Excellent capture and explanation of Oklahoma weather. It's been a lot like that here in Northwest Arkansas lately as well. Have a wonderful week-end.

Un kikou de France.
Après l'orage et la grosse pluie d'hier la température a beaucoup chuté et nous respirons mieux.
Limite, nous avons la sensation de froid !!!!!
