the calm before the storm

Bracing-For-Hurricane-Irene-Summer-2011



























I shot this two days ago in the home depot parking lot here in farmingdale. seems like I should have been inside buying  disaster preparedness supplies instead of photographing the sky. this morning my husband said the center of irene is supposed to pass right over the nassau and suffolk county border - right where we live! hopefully our electric will stay in service so I can keep you posted.

if you'd like to gaze at more wondrous skies from all around the world or if you'd like to add your own sky, please visit the skywatch friday meme, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, wren, and sylvia.

Beautiful photo! We are expecting Irene here in New Hampshire, as well. Stay safe!

Irene better slow down before she reaches you. I worry about my daughters house in Long Beach. Hope all goes well for you and your family.

Oh, I do hope you will be okay! Do whatever is needed to keep you safe! My thoughts are with you, Lily! Take care!

How can such a beautiful sky one day turn into something so dreadful within days, take care Lily, and stay as safe as you can.

Fingers crossed for you. We have been watching updates on the news, since we have family in Maryland.

Hope you kept your power and all your trees, and didn't experience any flooding. Meanwhile, this "before" picture is beautiful.
