Stalking rain clouds

 We need rain.  Bad.

There is rain in the forecast and we are so excited, but cautiously so.  Last time we had thunderstorms in the area, all of the action split and went north or south of us.  We are desperate for rain!

We noticed that there was some storms on the radar to our west.  The clouds started to look promising and any thunder-like noise had us stop and listen.

Given the likelihood that it might rain, we hustled out to take the fabric top off of the gazebo and to feed the alpacas some hay.  I grabbed my camera to get a few photos of the building clouds to the north and east of our house.

I was struck by how dry the corn looked in the foreground and yet so hopeful about the promise in the clouds.
