Season of the clouds

  Spring time in Oklahoma, the season of clouds and ping-pong weather. Cool and rainy this morning, turns to muggy weather this afternoon, as the clouds drift across the gradually clearing sky, the warmth and humidity building up cumulus. The next day should be nice, but then the next may bring severe weather with more clouds, and then the next will be nice again. 
"Lift up your eyes..." says Scripture. What beautiful skies. Waiting to be painted in watercolor.
