Some Days it Pays to Simply Look Up!

Most people make the assumption that here in the Pacific Northwest it rains all the time.  We do have our fair share of rain, but that mostly happens in the winter when other areas are getting inundated with snow.

Personally, I’d prefer a few days of snow over a few days of rain, but that’s just me.

All other times it varies between cloudy, foggy, or those stellar bright sunshiny days that we’ve been having a lot of lately. Sure, that means it’s been uncharacteristically hot, but I don’t mind, especially since I don’t have to worry about perpetual bad hair days like I did when living in Pennsylvania with the extreme humidity tagging along on those hot sunny days.

And then there are those days that are a combination of sunny with some puffy white that give us quite the show when you look up.  Or even better, when there’s an incredible display like there was a few days ago:


Isn’t that cool in a funky kind of way? Here’s a little shot:


Pretty cool, no? The sun was directly behind that fat juicy cloud, which gave an amazing display. It was kind of cool how the cloud cast a shadow against the blue of the sky, too.


Some days it definitely pays to simply look up.

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. What beautiful shots you got! I love it when the skies surprise us. Graham and Davis are constantly pointing things out. Graham especially likes it when the sky is pink and repeats that sailor rhyme for us.

  2. Yes, I agree it pays to look up. You just don’t know what you might be missing some days. I love this cloud ~ very cool, indeed! It makes me think of a mushroom cloud as in the the atom bomb going off kind, but without the destruction. Have a fototastic week & happy #WW!

  3. Ah, look at that sky! And what a marvelous cloud formation! If it weren’t so stinking GRAY here this week, I guess I’d be more tempted to just look up.
