The View From Here

A big rainstorm came through today, which was wonderful and refreshing. Here is a view of it arriving, taken from an upstairs window.
The Thompson and North Thompson Rivers come together here, and we can see rainy weather heading our way down the North Thompson river valley. It's been hot here, so I wanted to go outside and stand in the rain when it got here, but some lighting decided to come, too, so I stayed inside and watched all the CRACK and swoooosh of it from a window...

It is nice to watch the rain from the security of home isn't it? And when it's over the air is so fresh and clear.

Lovely photos! Right now I am not too near mountains, but when I am one of my favorite things is to watch the storms run down the valleys. So lovely. You are fortunate to live with such a stunning view. Your books are beautiful too... I also am interested in historical binding. I think my fav is coptic, but longstitch is so variable, you can do wonderful things with the threads on the outside of the spine...
