The weather in Texas goes from bad to worse -and then nice again all within an hour.
If you don’t like the weather in Texas, just wait ten minutes.
Elinor Pendaz is my grandmother on my mom’s side. Living on the coast near the Gulf of Mexico, her saying was constantly reinforced by the elements. My mom tells a story of when she was growing up about a day when she stood in the front yard of her home. The sky was blackened by heavy storm clouds and pouring rain. She stepped inside, walked directly to the back of the house, and stepped out the door onto a brightly lit porch with the warm sun radiating down.
Today a heavy front slid like a massive glacier across the skies above our ranch. The transition from calm grey to raging charcoal skies was exhilarating.
I took photos just for y’all.
The clouds churned vigorously above. These shifting photos were taken at close intervals.
The skies became even darker. You can see a crackle of lightning in the photo above. There were frequent unanticipated bursts of light, but this was the only one I successfully caught.
