Show in the Sky #SkywatchFriday

Last week, we had a show in the sky.

We got to see somebody (possibly the Thunderbirds) practicing while we were picking blueberries last Friday. Then we saw the (definitely) Thunderbirds performing, from a flood wall, Saturday, during the one performance they were able to hold.  

The Sunday air show sky performances were cancelled due to low ceiling.

I'm apologizing in advance for these pictures but they do have some pretty cloud formations in them.  So, please view them as much for the clouds as my poor attempts to capture these planes from afar.

Here's a couple of the Friday practice run pictures we took while blueberry picking. You can see contrails in the center of the photo and (maybe) two little dots - the airplanes.

Another picture, after they straightened out.  Don't strain your eyes.

As for the Saturday performance, our skies were blue, but there are four tiny dots towards the bottom center.  But the clouds sure were pretty.

To me, the cloud looks almost like a musical note.
Next to last, but not least, just enjoy the sky.  I didn't try to crop this one.

It was so nice seeing that blue sky so I will give you one more photo from Saturday.  No planes, I promise.

All the rain is scary - we are under flash flood warnings several times a week now and we may be one major storm (according to a newspaper article) from river flooding.  But it's nothing like the flooding in Germany, Belgium or China recently.  I hope everyone who reads this post, and their family/friends, can stay safe.
