Skywatch Friday:  Rain Shadow


Last week I had to pull a photo from January, 2010 since I had nothing interesting to offer from the new year.  My friend Linnea predicted another great sunrise would come along.  Her prediction came true last Saturday morning.  South Fidalgo woke under the clear skies of the Olympic Rain Shadow, while areas to the south were covered in roiling overcast.  Ten minutes later, the sun was about to break while a raft of ducks swam to meet it:

  1. Superb captures as always, Dave! And, no, we haven't seen anything like that to start the day in sometime. We're specializing in gray these days here in Ballard -- three inches of snow, more rain and then today! MORE rain! Ah, well! One of these days the sun will return!! Hope you have a great weekend with or without sun!!

  4. No fair, Dave. While you were enjoying the sun, we dealt with rain on our drive to Marysville.
