ill liquid Sunshine
It poured down on New Orleans yesterday with more than 4 inches of rain in most spots and up to 8 inches in some. I shot this from my office window when a particular strong band was coming through. For a few minutes it was as black as midnight at 2 p.m. in the afternoon. Some street flooding, but for the most part, we pulled through okay. Just one of those Spring days when you want to stay inside.
At sunset, I caught these little saucer shaped clouds. I suppose some meteorologist can explain them -- may just be the way the rays of sunset only catch the bottom of the clouds, but the seemed very refreshing after a day of severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings.
