SKYWATCH FRIDAY (Secretive Sun)


After many days of clear blue skies and sunshine, the remnants of Hurricane Gustaf has finally arrived. Yesterday morning I woke to this beautiful pattern of clouds obscuring the rising sun.Eventually the sun did manage to peep out through a crack in the clouds for a few minutes. Now, of course we have torrential rain! Oh well, we needed it, the ground was very dry.
