SKYWATCH FRIDAY – Storm on the Michigan Side (Lake Erie)
Looking across the lake, I can always see the weather over parts of both Michigan and Ohio. The storm in the top photo, in the far west corner of the horizon, was raining down over some counties in Michigan. Further along to the east (bottom) it sky is still clear over Sandusky, Ohio. It looks like it’s rained here in Leamington, too—the breakwall parapet is wet and shining—but that’s just from waves splashing over.

The Cloud Messenger (Meghadūta) is a lyric poem by the respected Indian poet, Kālidāsa. The poem centers around a yaksa in exile. Longing for his beloved, waiting for him on a Himalayan mountain, he asks a cloud to take a message to her. The sights he tells the cloud it will see on its way make up most of the poem.
The idea of recording observations appeals to me. I thought The Cloud Messenger was the perfect title for a blog about the journey that we all make as we move through our days.
