Cloud Bank

 
Standing on a high bluff by the big lake today, you could see a bank of clouds rolling in across Lake Michigan. I thought that's all there was going to be to say about it. We didn't get a storm of any kind, it was just this roll of gray "cotton."

So then I went to work at the paper and all the way home, headed east I was chasing the back edge of that same roll that had passed over. I stopped at the store and the back edge was then being lit by the late afternoon sun.

It sure made an ordinary tree beside a busy highway look special!
