Stormy Weather

 
sharing with...
and
where you share 5 random facts about you, your day,
your pets, your kids, whatever
 
1. A good storm invigorates me. Must be all those negative ions in the air.
2. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy. They also help recovery from physical exhaustion and fatigue – achieved by increasing oxygen levels in the blood.
3. I like to listen to the rain pounding on a metal roof.
4. I like the smell of the air after a storm.
5. I am one of those people who actually likes to dance in the rain.

Ah, we have a lot in common, Karen, I feel exactly the same way you do!! Guess it's one of the reasons I moved to the northwest years ago -- I was born and raised in Texas where rain and storms were actually few and far between!! Awesome skies for the day -- any day actually!! Hope you have a lovely, stormy, rainy weekend!! Enjoy!!

I used to like the rain but now it just puts me on edge as to what leak my very old building may spring! ;-))

Nancy J said...

Beautiful photo, down here I always think the air is cleaner and the sky more blue after heavy rain, and those dark clouds offer great photo scenes, such a contrast to a sunny day. Cheers, Jean.

Beautiful shot- and I love the smell of rain- it ranks right up there with the smell of mowed grass. Seasonal thing I guess.

Love the rain - but am less enthralled with thunder and lightening.
Gorgeous image - thank you.

Our daughter loves the rain too and feels better in that kind of weather. I am the opposite. But if my stormy days were as beautiful as the one you show here I might just change my mind!!

Buttons said...

I have been dancing in the rain all day wet and happy:) I had no idea about this. That explains a lot:) Hug B

EG CameraGirl said...

Hey, Karen! You and I think alike on all five of your Random 5. Your sky shot is very lovely indeed.

I wish I could like the rain as much as you! Storms usually give me headaches. Beautiful photo! Have a great weekend and Happy skywatching!

Nonnie said...

hmm...we are opposites concerning rain. nevertheless I love your capture of this sky!

Nice cloud photo. I live in a rainy climate, but I don't mind the rain. In the winter, it means there will be snow in the mountains. I'm a skier, so that's a good thing.

Laura said...

Gorgeous photo Karen… I like to dance in the rain too, but only if it is summer time and warm. Still I enjoy an exciting storm… especially the snowy variety… I don't mind dancing in the SNOW … somehow that doesn't feel cold in the same way as rain this time of year.

Nancy said...

Your shot of the storm brewing over the water is beautiful...I love the way you incorporated your random five with your picture and by the way, I love rain on a tin roof and dancing in the rain too...

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Your sky just goes on forever.

I love to go out and photograph after a good rain, the colors are all so intense. Love the look of your sky.

Carole M. said...

all those random fives sound good to me too. A fantastic photograph

Robyn G said...

Karen,

I like non-sever thunder storms too. The smell after a rain is awesome and the cool summer air is usually a relief.

I was so scared of storms as a kid. When the beep .... beep .... beep warnings came across the tv I went and hit behind the couch or under a bed.

Sandy Carlson said...

That's one beautiful sky!

Misty said...

Gorgeous blue sky! Lovely.

Nancy said...

I like thunderstorms, and there's nothing like rain falling on a metal roof. I'd dance in the rain if Gene Kelly were my partner. ;)

Icy BC said...

I don't mind the rain when the weather is warmer, and I love to listen to the sound of rain on metal roof too..

Gorgeous photo!

Les... said...
