Sunset... back when they told us they would clear the road in about 1 1/2 hours :roflmao:
Had to pay for a room at The Cliff instead of sleeping on a couch or bench.

This was a minor slide compared to farther down.

I assume you are talking about Little Cottonwood Canyon? Mother Nature!

Yeah, once we got down from LCC in the strandee group of cars Friday morning, I turned right around and left for the Uintas for the weekend.
Lots of news coverage on the stuff since then. We heard lots of stories as we hung out at the Tram Club Thursday night and again the next morning in the line of cars waiting to get escorted out. Third time this summer that a 20% chance of rain has affected my plans.

I've been editing photos and updating my blog trying to get through a 6 month backlog.

My wife and I took a kid free trip to Paris in June, I really don't like cities, but parts were nice :)

Storm over Sacré-Cœur Basilica. This is from the roof of the Musee D'Orsay on the south side of the Seine looking north



more Paris in a couple other threads or here https://backpackandbeer.blogspot.com/2019/08/paris.html

I haven't posted any Weather / Cloud pictures for a while. We've had some impressive storms lately, particularly at night but I haven't been dragging myself out of bed to try to see what I could get on the camera. Sometimes I just haven't had a camera handy anyway. Haven't been trying very hard. Here's the best of what I've succeeded in getting.

Mamatus clouds are always photogenic. I did put out some effort on this one. Liked how it came out.

Arriving evening thunderstorm. According to the radar on my weather app the lightning was about 40 miles away but I think it was closer.

More Mamatus clouds. These are usually a harbinger of really bad weather here so I felt a little sideways about hoping these would get more pronounced. They didn't but I got to drive home in hail.

A nice shelf cloud illuminated by lightning. This was taken just before the torrential rain arrived.

I love those shots, @Curt. Really incredible weather out there. I miss the quality and frequency of storms I had in Indiana.
Thanks! I've lived in a few other places and with the exception of hurricanes, no other place has had the big violent storms that Nebraska seems to have pretty regularly. Indiana would also be in the border lands where hot humid air coming up from the Gulf meets the cold dry air coming down out of Canada that produces the big storms. They can be really impressive can't they?
