Fleeting moment of wild blue yonder

About 10 a.m. today near Cherry Valley, Ill.

If an artist painted this sky, she would be accused of overly done brush work. But this is how The Artist (and I’m not talking about the rock musician Prince) created the heavens this morning near Rockford, Ill.

These swirls in Blue Gray (retired by Crayola in 1990) dissolved quickly into dull gray skies, vague thunder and isolated showers. Hampshire got a much-needed drink after a week of temps in the 80s and 90s.

The corn field is the perfect foundation for this summer sky. Fresh corn on the cob is available at the local farm market tomorrow!
