Ominous Clouds

Have you ever looked up that word, ominous?

I've used it before and always had a general idea of the definition
but I didn't know the true meaning of it until I looked it up this morning.

Here's Merriam-Webster's definition:  ominous:  adj: being or exhibiting an omen :  portentous; especially: foreboding or foreshadowing evil:  inauspicious. Synonyms: baleful, dire, direful, doomy, foreboding, ill, ill-boding, inauspicious, menacing, minatory, portentous, sinister, threatening.

I've been fascinated with clouds lately.

So many different types, shapes, colors, etc.  They can really be beautiful.

Last night as I was loading the car to leave the church
(after a long day of working in the youth room) the clouds
were looking ominous and threatening of some potentially bad weather.

The skies were beautiful (of course, I like anything that's pink!) in a scary sort-of way.

With all the crazy weather that's been happening across the globe lately,
one never knows, anymore, what these types of clouds may turn in to.

Fortunately, all we received was some more much-needed rain.

And, it waited to start until I was home and finished with all the farm chores, yay!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I'm off to make some deviled-eggs for our Spring Picnic at church today, woot!

Till next time,

Love your header!

Such beautiful photo's!

My great granddaughter and I love to cloud watch. The other day we noticed a somewhat dark cloud with a touch of sunlight shooting through. It was beautiful but by the time I'd gotten the camera, it had moved. :)

those really are beautiful. glad they didn't yield anything dangerous or destructive - just welcome moisture.
