Gloomy July Skies #SkywatchFriday

On the last Thursday of July, 2021, the forecast was rain.  Again.  It's official - even before today, we had a record rainy July.

The day started out gloomy.  And then (surprise) it rained.  Hey, rain, can't you go somewhere you are needed?

After the rain stopped, spouse and I took a walk.  It was still trying to be gloomy.  There are benches overlooking the river, but no one was taking advantage of them.

As we walked, sun rays tried to break out of the clouds.  You can barely see them in the lower middle, just above the gloomy trees.

An actual patch of blue!  But it didn't last long.

Finally, I had to take a puddle picture.

Hoping for better pictures next time.

Also, hoping all of my readers and their families are staying safe from the heat, the storms, and the pandemic.

Joining Yogi and other sky loving bloggers for #SkywatchFriday.


  1. That is an impressive looking sky!

  2. sure is gloomy this morning in Tupper Lake.

  3. Greetings and Salutations! Even gray skies can be interesting. Liked the cyber tour after the rain. Added a puddle picture. Neato!

  4. I love the second to last picture, with dark clouds on one side and a bit of blue sky with puffy white clouds on the other. It epitomizes the transition between good and bad weather.

  5. Yow! Great skies! Yep. Please send them here. Sure wishing for some of those clouds right now! ;)

  6. It still made for very pretty skies. I have a puddle picture today too! Again, "great minds..."

  7. Rain, rain, rain, hold on, the sun is coming out! I hope

  8. I'll trade you my skies for yours. We could really use some of your rain!

  9. Sorry you had a rainy walk. The sky was nice and atmospheric, though.

  10. Our sky looks similar most days with the occasional rain shower. I like your puddle shot!

    Hope you enjoy your weekend!


  11. We could use some rain here in North Idaho.
    Coffee is on and stay safe
