Looking at the Sky on Friday - 29


I’m so glad there’s a meme like Looking at the Sky on Friday, because it means all the time I spend looking at the sky, and taking pictures of it, has a purpose! Click the badge for more info.

We went to the first high school football game of the year last Friday night.  Usually the band plays, but since school hadn’t started yet, they didn’t.  We went anyway since I bought the passes at registration, and it’s a pretty enjoyable way to spend an evening.  Cory, the only one who actually attends school there, stayed home. 

Our team did pretty well.  Sometimes the other teams are a lot bigger and better, and we all wish they’d take weight loss supplements, stop lifting weights, and skip practice for  a month or two so our team would have a chance.  This time, though, our team was ahead 13-0 with 5 minutes to go in the 4th quarter.  And then the ref paused the game because of lightning – and according to state law, once the  ref mentions lightning, the game cannot resume for at least 30 minutes – from the last lightning strike.  It was still a ways off, and probably wouldn’t have even gotten to us until the game was over, but it was too late.  We decided not to wait around to see if the game would resume and just came on home, so I don’t know if they ever finished the game.

It was still a lot of fun, and I took some pictures of the sky, too – of course.

The moon was still visible, hadn’t even been covered by clouds by the time we left.  By the time we got home, the moon was gone, and it wasn’t long before we got some good rain – and sitting at home, inside where it’s dry, was much better than sitting out at a football game.  Definitely.

If you enjoy skies as much as I do, be sure to check out Looking at the Sky on Friday.

  7. What lightning? What is different here is the lovely skies that are preceding the storm that the mean dark clouds we usually, but the bright before the storm is new to me!
