Skywatch Friday

It's another Skywatch Friday and I'm going to contribute some North Dakota storm clouds. I love the prairie--I love birding on the prairie, when the sun is out and it's spring, nothing quite beats bird song on the prairie. However, when it's rainy and windy, nothing can be quite as brutal as birding on the prairie. There are no trees to slow the wind and the rain, but the expanse is vast and you can get a clear view of the storm about to hit you. I love the look of clouds right before a rain. I love the view of a minimum maintenance road disappearing into an approaching storm, the unknowable is ahead.

I think this is one of my favorite views in North Dakota--painted beehives under storm clouds on a prairie.
