Stormy sunrise

Yesterday was the first day in almost a week that we haven’t had storms in the Champlain Valley. This morning, I woke up to thunder again, went down to close the windows on the sun porch, and saw the sun coming up across the lake, through the pouring rain.  I sat for half an hour and watched it rise, then disappear into the bank of clouds spreading east.  I’ve lived here almost nine years and taken lots of pictures, but today was new.  I’m a day late for Thankful Thursday, but I am always thankful for stolen moments like these…

  1. Hi Kate, thanks for getting up early to take these beautiful photos, and for the nature journal update, and for explaining the meaning of St. Elmo’s Fire. In the space of a few moments of pleasurable reading, I learned some new facts and sighed over a sunrise. I hope it’s okay if I friend you; I enjoy reading your posts.

  2. I’m going to echo almost word for word here: gorgeous pictures, fresh information, and thoroughly enjoyable posts (and I am so enamoured of the title Spitfire!). Hoping you don’t mind if I friend you.

  3. I never mind being friended, and I friended you right back. Thanks for the compliments on my blog. I love where I live and enjoy sharing photos.


  4. Kate, hopped over from your post in reply to mine on the SCBWI boards (about classroom visits). Thanks for the valuable feedback. You make good points.
