In the Belly of the Clouds

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in all that I'm supposed to do, I forget why I do it. Today we headed up the mountain...I was shocked to realize that I had forgotten the rhododendrons would be in bloom. As we reached the Blue Ridge Parkway, the clouds had begun to embrace the mountains as they do when they wish to make things wet--the temperature had dropped a good 15 degrees from when we left town.

There is nothing quite like watching a storm...at eye level.
