When Sunny Gets Blue

This storm was rolling in on only one side of the interstate in South Dakota. If you click on the picture, you can get a better look. I like the lone tree in the center and the way the sky goes from light to dark.

It's not a great photo because we were moving, but if you look at the clouds on the right, the bottom of them are very dark, as if rain is just pooling in there, waiting to drop to the earth. The sky on the other side of the interstate was sunny and bright blue, with puffy white clouds hovering over the land. It looked as if we were driving right down the center of two completely different places.

I love storm clouds and gray days and every time I see a blue sky going gray, I think of this song from my childhood. My parents were huge Johnny Mathis fans, so I have a mental rolodex of his songs; probably more than I'll ever need to know. I know the song is about a person and not an actual sky, but I always find myself singing it when I see clouds rolling in.

When Sunny gets blue, her eyes get gray and cloudy, then the rain begins to fall.....
