Cloudy, Cloudy, Cloudy!

Been putting up with this almost daily and today is no exception. The above picture was taken yesterday. All the clouds with no rain sure screws up the solar and means no AC running off of solar even though its still hot and muggy. It had gotten up to 108 earlier, but the temp is now down to 100 with the clouds.

This was taken last night and there was one heck of a lightning storm going on on the other side of 9 Points Mesa. It was far enough away that you couldn't hear any thunder, but the show was spectacular and I sat out front and watched it until about 10:30 last night. Would have sure made for some good photos if I could have caught the lightning flashes.

Below pictures were also taken last night.

  1. Darn if it is not one thing, it is another. I am sorry that your solar is not generating enough to run the a/c with all the clouds especially with temperatures in the three digits.

    Those are nice pictures. No doubt mother natures knows how to put on a show.

    1. MsB, I've done without the AC most of the time I've been here so I can handle it even if it means staying in the shade outside and wearing a wet towel around my neck. Of course the higher humidity and days with no breeze it gets tough!. Would be nice to be able to run the AC in the heat of the day though. Its 5:33 and back up to 106 now. Got down to 99 earlier when the clouds were heavy.

  2. Beautiful pictures. Muggy is normal for this area of Texas where I live. They say it is good for your complexion. I don't care, I stay inside in the A.C.

    1. DD, the Muggy must be why I was so handsome when I lived and worked in Houston. Now I just look like a prune. ;)

    1. SUERTE, I wouldn't mind the damn clouds so much IF we would get some decent rain every now and then. Unfortunately it rains pretty heavy all around here, but not here.

  4. Beautiful pictures tffnguy! I'm hoping for more rain, but not til after I get down there. On my way soon and will send you a personal email to let you know the details, take care of yourself, and we'll do a rain dance when I get there with some of this good Canadian Whiskey! Maybe we should invite MsB. to come over and visit Terlingua area once again? (Make your dreams reality is my moto). Can't wait to get back down there, and, I know it's going to be hotter than hell! See ya'll soon, Your Pal, Al.

  5. Glad you like the pictures Al. MsB will be back here before long for the chili cook off. Doubt she could or would come before then. Yeah if you come very soon it will be hotter than hell. I expect around 108 daily. Its still 85 degrees outside now at 12:10 so I hope you can deal with the heat at night to. Will probably be around 2:00 or 3:00 before it gets sleeping temperature.
